Birthday Craftiness


My Hunny’s Birthday was this month & we all gathered a nice big surprise for him. I had to wait until afterwards to do this post (or it would ruin the surprise).

He got two physical gifts and I managed to make them pretty but masculine with some packing paper and washi tapes.


I sealed it up pretty good on the back too. But the card held the BIG surprise!



He got a year long subscription to a game site we love to play! It was something he would never have gotten himself but it will be used throughout the year. Yay!

Now, if any of you watch Rick & Morty (it is a cartoon for adults) then you know what the drawing is and what the word “means”. Haha.

For my artsy friends out there – I free hand drew this cartoon Rick by looking at images off of image search and using a piece of sketch paper from one of my sketchbooks (Master’s Touch  9″×12″ 60# paper spiral sketchbook. I got mine at Hobby Lobby with a coupon). I drew it with a mechanical pencil and eraser, then drew over the simple line art with my Chameleon detail pen. ( )
I colored it in with the Chameleon Pens in the following colors: BL3 sky blue – for his hair, BG4 aqua marine – for his shirt, CG8 cool grey – for the shadows, NU1 bisque – for his skin tones, YG3 spring meadow – for the little dab of drool he always seems to have going on, and CB colorless blender for any areas that were a bit too dark or needed extra blending.

Unfortunately I don’t have a set up where I could record what I’m doing to show everyone. Maybe after Christmas or next year? I think I would like doing that but as it is now… my studio is still quite a mess.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Bye for now!
