This year, once again, I will be tackling the ICAD Challenge. After failing hopelessly to keep up with Every Day in May, you may wonder if I am capable of completing such a challenge. I know I am because I have done it before (twice). The ICAD Challenge runs from 1st June to 31st July and the idea is to create something on an index card every day. That’s it. The challenge works for me because it’s so flexible – you can do whatever you like on your index card! There are weekly prompts if you get stuck, but there is no obligation to follow them. In addition, the boys love joining in as well, which means it becomes a fun part of family life instead of something I need to carve out separate time for.
Here are some of the different index cards I created in 2012 and 2011 to give an idea of the different range of possibilities:
Fun with sharpies:
Fun with crayons and paints:
It’s even possible to complete an index card on those less-than-creative days:
So, what are you waiting for?! Get yourself a pack of index cards and JOIN IN FROM TOMORROW! You know you want to 😉
