Index-Card-a-Day 2017 Index

Learn everything you need to know in the ICAD FAQ.
And yes, it's gotta be an index card.

The 7th Annual Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day Challenge 
June 1-July 31, 2017. 

The idea is simple; create something on index card every day for 61 days. Bookmark this page. This serves as a table of contents, 🌻 an index, for the annual challenge.

Here's how it works.

Folks around the globe 🏄 create something on an index card from June 1 - July 31. That's 61 days of creative work! It's not a competition or a who-can-do-better-art kind of fancy schmancy challenge but a super intense roll-up-your-sleeves project. And it quite possibly alter your creative trajectory. But you won't know unless you try, right!?

Yes, you can still join! We have challengers joining weeks into the challenge so YES please jump in. Whether you make 27 or 46 or 61 cards, it will change your creative process for the better! 

There are a few rules, although not many; all of that is covered in the handy ICAD FAQ where you can find answers to frequently asked questions. You can use any type of standard index card [max 4x6"] that you find in an office supply store. Lined, neon, blank, tabbed, etc. or rolodex cards are OK. I'm in love with the 3x5" size, and use both lined cards and tabbed index card dividers. 

2017 ICAD Topical Prompts
[Posted Weekly]

I'll post prompts here at the blog  - in this very spot - every Sunday during the challenge at about 10am CST. I'll also post them on instagram and in the Daisy Yellow ICAD group as well. So you'll have a few days before each week begins in order to regroup and contemplate and brainstorm what you'd like to do each week. In 2017 ICAD weeks begin on... Thursdays! Prompts are 100% optional and can be safely ignored if you wish.
