Just One of Those Days

I’m posting a bit late today, but it was “just one of those days.”  Looking back on it, nothing seems all that eventful, but I just felt like I was spinning my wheels!  Phone calls, laundry, meals and a little one who is beginning to walk, but not with enough confidence to let go of my hand all that much.  When he wants to walk everywhere rather than crawl, I spend a lot of time touring the house with him.  🙂  He’ll be off and running soon, I’m sure!  WaTcH OuT wOrLd!

I managed to sit down and make a birthday card tonight, despite it all.  The Stamping Boutique is celebrating its second birthday and is having a Birthday Challenge that involves the chance to win a free image from the store!  I used this charming little gal from their digital stamp collection:

Stamps – The Stamping Boutique (little girl with a balloon, digital stamp), SU sentiment (Create a Cupcake set)
Paper – SU Real Red textured CS, SU Brushed Silver CS, Copic Blending card, My Mind’s Eye DP (Out of the Blue)
Ink – CTMH Lagoon
Accessories – Stickles (red), metal pearls, Martha Stewart small monarch punch, Spica pen (silver), Nestabilities (circle), SU corner rounder punch, foam squares (popped up sentiment panel)
Coloring – Copic markers

The sketch is from I {Heart} 2 Stamp:
