Happy Day

Good evening. It's been a very quiet day today, not much going on here apart from a nice walk with husband and dog and a  brief visit from my granddaughters, so plenty of time to play! I'm well up to date with DT commitments (virtuous smirk) so I thought it'd be fun to colour some images that I've been lucky enough to win recently. Here's a card I made using Alex, a little cutie from Oddball Art Stamps. I coloured her with copics and die cut with a stitched oval die which is lightly distress inked and a tiny bit of white frantage added (doesn't show very well in photo, light not very good today!). The background design is made up of squares of dp matted onto larger squares of kraft, all die cut using stitched square dies. I added a die cut swirly bow (MB) with a (very old) butterfly brad and a small tag with a stamped sentiment and a twine bow.
On reflection the sentiment is apt for my day...quiet, but happy.
Hope you have had a happy day too!
