Index card a day No. 1

 I did something. I started another project.

As if I needed something else to add to my plate, right? What with scrapping (yeah, I scrap, really, I do), editing photos (I'll get right on those 2010 project photos, I promise), and playing with yarn (Saroyan anyone?). The last thing I need is another project.

But wait, this one is fun. Not that my other projects aren't fun. But this one lets me get all creative and stuff. It's a crafty type of challenge and one that I really think will be good for me.

Also, I figured since I already had a bajillion index cards, I might as well put them to good use. Plus, it's something that will let me play with all the goodies I have collected over the years. And so what if I am a couple of days late getting started. I can start right now and still have a great collection by the end of the challenge.

So what is this project you ask?

Well it's an Index card a day challenge.

What's that? Oh, it's where I get to decorate an index card in anyway that I wish. One index card, every day for the next 2 months.

Sounds like fun, right?

I came across the challenge over at The Daisy Yellow blog. All the info on the challenge is there. There are even weekly prompts if you need some help getting started.

That's what did me in, the weekly prompts.

I hadn't yet decided if I wanted to jump in and start the project, until I read one of the prompts......


That one little word is what did it. I got to thinking how I have yellow paint that has been sitting in a drawer (for years) waiting to be used for the first time. I could definitely create something yellow. So, I did.
