ICADs 20 - 29

I've been having an absolute blast
which is organised and run by 

It's been such fun finding images in 
vintage National Geographic magazines,
along with found text and 
appropriate backgrounds.

Some days are really easy and these little
pieces of art almost seem to put themselves together.

Other days it's like pulling teeth
and it takes me a while to get the card done.

But generally they only take
 10-20 minutes to do
(the backgrounds were prepared earlier).

Some of them just make me laugh and laugh.

I have enjoyed getting into the routine
of making one of these cards every day.

My initial plan was to do ICAD for a month,
but because I'm enjoying it so much 
and I don't feel like I'm running out of 
steam quite yet, I now think I'll keep going 
for the full 62 days.

I'd better get some more backgrounds ready!

Thank you for looking!

whoot whoot - they are all MARVELOUS and I am so glad you are going to stick with it!!! Have you decided what you are going to do with them (besides starting your own Fiddlesnips Card line via Hallmark)

Your sense of humour is right up my alley and your cards make me chuckle or laugh out loud. I'm glad to hear that you will continue :). My favorite one of this batch is the sewing lady but they are all fabulous.

I just love these, Jo. Way to go!! I definitely want to buy some postcards from you when you make them, if you'll let me . . . purchase a set??!! xo

I have loved everyone of them. They are all so different and fun.

I'm thrilled to hear you're going to keep doing them, if they're as much fun to create as they are to look at then it's a win-win!
