A Birthday Week's Worth Of Index Cards

ICAD #s 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, and 53
July 17th - 23rd, 2012
"Tyler's Birthday Week 2012"

This past week, Tyler turned six - Hooray!  (What a fun age to be!)  In honor of his "Birthday Week" (we celebrate birthday weeks at the Dudish house), I created a series of index cards in remembrance of the 7(+) day celebration.

I have been a fan of Aimee from artsyville for ages, and since I consider her to be the Queen of Lists, I thought I would turn to her delightful doodles as a source of inspiration.  I'm glad I gave it a shot, and this will be a great list to look back on when Tyler is older, but I will definitely be leaving this kind of doodling to the expert!

If you haven't taken a trip to artsyville yet, be sure to stop by... Aimee just completed a book that is completely hand drawn and absolutely amazing!

(There is only 1 more week of the ICAD challenge!  Where has the time gone?!?)


  1. Happy Birthday to your sweet boy!!

    Love the doodle cards. Great memories!

    I adore Aimee. Just ordered my copy of the book. She is such a cool woman and artist, just like you :)

  2. Wow! And I bet you've still got energy left at the end of that marathon week. Late happy birthday to Tyler, what a lucky star he was born under to have you and his dad for parents. It's my birthday soon so I'm going to ask for a birthday week from my beloved. Loved all the cards and how much more memorable as keepsake mementos than mere photos.

  3. WOW! Now that's what I call a celebration! Happy times for a whole week, Tyler must have had a ball and I love the index cards. Show them to Tyler when he's twelve and see if he remembers this birthday week. Bet he does.

  4. Happy Birthday Tyler! Lovely cards too.

  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TYLER!!!! I so remember my boys turning 6 - so fun and sweet...enjoy - they grow up soooooooo fast!
    cheers, dana
