Monochromatic Birthday & SUPER HAPPY MAIL

Hello Friends,

I have a card to share with you today, but before I do that, I just have to show you what came in the mail for me yesterday.

Thanks to my generous son, I have a brand new Fiskars guillotine cutter with a self-sharpening blade! I knew he ordered it, but I thought I would have to wait for three weeks until my actual birthday. But he told me to go ahead and open it; he already has something else for my birthday. I told you he was generous. What a guy.

This baby cuts like a dream. No more crooked pages and ragged, wonky edges. Yay! \o/

Now onto my card. The Saturday Paper A La Mode challenge at The Outlawz is asking for monochromatic designs. I thought I would give it a go.
I colored this little guy with water colour pencils and Tombow markers. I have him listed in my files as "clip art", but he is so sweet that seems hard to believe. If you recognize him and know who the artist is, please let me know so I can give her credit for this darling creation. The chip board number was actually an 'r'. I chopped one side off (with my new Fiskars cutter - YAY) and turned it into a 1.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope your week is going well.

Hugs & smiles,
