This and That






- June Is National Iced Tea Month 
and that's a very good thing!


- June marks the beginning of hurricane season 
and that is not a very good thing.......


- ICAD (Index Card A Day) started --
June and July --
61 little pieces of art on an index card.

This is my Index Card for June 1.
Mixed-media, paper scraps, ephemera, stamps, fortune cookie.



ICAD


"The challenge is about the DOING and not the
KEEPING or PRESERVING or ARCHIVING. 
It is the process of creating each day that matters."

~ Tammy at Daisy Yellow


- I had a birthday.

It started by opening all the birthday cards.

Flowers from a dear friend.
Too cute!

Instead of birthday cake--
birthday cupcakes --

Happy Belated Birthday my dear! It looks like you had a lovely day! I don't do crafts (as you know) but I understand the "process of creating rather than archiving ..." it's a little bit like what I say about our travels "it is the journey not the destination that counts". Enjoy each moment of each day in other words!

Maggie said...

Happy MM.

Happy Birthday! I like the idea of the challenge. Art is a process to be enjoyed. The product is secondary. Have fun with your cards!

Sweet Five...late birthday wishes to you!

I love that you included a fortune in your index card art. I have been collecting meaningful fortunes for a long time, and when I retired, my work colleagues gave me a page full of fortunes with their personal comments. Happy Belated Birthday to you!

Lorrie said...

Belated Happy Birthday, Snap! You have quite a stack of cards to open. The cupcakes look delicious. Enjoy Iced Tea Month!
