Finally, something other than collages here.....Tammy has started her summer of ICAD creations again so for the months of June and July she's encouraging us to make a little piece of art every day.  You only need enough to fill an index card (3x5 or 4x6 is up to you).  Simple doodles or elaborate drawing, sketch of your back yard, practice your lettering, stitching or painting - it's all up to you. Make it quick so it fits into your busy summer days.  Check out more details at Daisy Yellow ....

I participated last year for the first time and found it wonderfully invigorating to be pulled to my art room or to grab a pen and doodle....every day.  Hope you'll join in the summer fun.....(or winter if that's what's going on in your hemisphere).  Don't be surprised if lots of my ICAD production is collages .... double duty, right?

To start with, no collaging - a doodle and then because time is short today, a quick scribble with my new oil pastels.  I picked them up for a pittance at a yard sale yesterday.


  1. Love your doodle! I've joined in as well.
    What a great find - love those yard sales. For me it's finding books - especially ones to tear up!

    I had just emailed asking what you're doing and then checked my Feedly to see this post. Have fun :).
    Stay inspired!

  3. "yay!"
    ** love your doodle Terrie. :]

    Cute doodles and a quick pastel. That's what ICAD is all about right? Really fun....every creation moves you somewhere. xox

  5. I was delighted to see you joined ICAD again this year. After seeing your collages last year, I decided to join this year, too.

    What fun images. I especially like the oil pastels. They show how clever you are!

  6. It was nearly 10:00 last night when I remembered I hadn't done my card yet. This in spite of doing art related things all day. My head is not fully in the game yet.

    Love these cards...especially that first one! I'm "in" this year, too, after trying and wimping out last year. Happy ICAD to you, Terrie :)

  8. Oh, this is good. I love love love that border. Wouldn't it be great to have a whole wall of groovy cards like this? I have been planning on working bigger, lately. Maybe I'll start my own 'refridgerator box board a day' challenge!

    hard to mail, though.

    i'll work on it.


Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
