Happy Tuesday everyone!
Hope you all did something fun, for those of you who celebrated Labor Day here in the USA, I sure hope the weather was good to you for those BBQ's and celebrations. My little one was off school Friday and Monday so it was a four day weekend for us! Now I'm trying to figure out what day it is!!! LOL
Here at Midnight Madness two of our lovely ladies will be sailing the high seas this week, so let's wish Priscilla and Carol a really fantastic time over in the Bahamas! Also any of the MM fans who will be setting sail with them I hope you all have a blast! It's been years since I've been to the Bahamas so I'm sure much has changed over there, but I loved it when I went so I'm positive they will have a great time.

My card this week is a little unusual for me as I don't think I've done many bird images before, but I've had this stamp for a while now and figured perhaps I should ink it up and create something with it! I was actually nervous about coloring it all wrong so I went to a web site to try to find photos of birds to help me out! I'm sure you will all let me know if my coloring of the image is really off!!! LOL
The dp I used is from a wonderful stack of old world, vintage style paper from K & Co. called Life's Journey and I love all the patterns they have there. The bird image is one of 4 from Martha Stewart called Clear Bird stamps. Pearls are from Michael's and the stickles I added for extra sparkle are Cotton Candy. Flowers also from Michael's by Prima.
I colored my image in prismacolored pencils and copics, chalked the edges of all dp to give a little vintage feel to the whole card.
Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to stop by my DT sister's blogs to check out their gorgeous creations.
Have a lovely day!
