I wasn't going to participate in Tammy's Index Card a Day Challenge
this year, simply because I missed the kick-off, and figured I would never be able to catch up.
The stars of inspiration aligned to draw me in, however, and yesterday was my own personal kick-off day. I read Karen's post
about using bits from her desk and recycling bin to make one of her cards, and in a flash of insight, I realized it would be a fun challenge to use ONLY items from the recycling bin for the ENTIRE project.
And then as I sat down at the table with my recycle bin next to me, I saw a clothing catalog and an article about dogs in quick succession, and I remembered my friend Becky's
latest interest--pairing animals' heads with models' bodies. How could I resist?
With no further ado, I share with you my first index cards of 2014:
|ICAD 2014 #1: No Room for Boring|
|ICAD 2014 #2: Poised to Become Responsible|
|ICAD 2014 #3: Grand Illusions in the Air|
|ICAD 2014 #4: Technological Advancements|
And my final card in this first set went in a new direction, though still relying on all recycling bin materials:
|ICAD 2014 #5: Assignment: Care About the Planet Today|
Stay tuned for more recycling bin finds for the Index Card a Day Challenge!

Love these! I did this with my students and they loved the freedom and the fun! I am just using up gelli paper scraps.
Ha--went in a new direction--I get it!
Andria, these are so terrific, creative and witty and cute. I love the one with the security envelope window.

A lot of fun! I have been saving and sorting animal images and hope to share more with you soon.
