Hello, it is sizzling hot again here.  So very tired of it.  Rick cut the grass this afternoon and by the time he finished he was soaked straight through!  Ridiculous!

I made this card for a new challenge, Simon Says Stamp and Show.  For their very first challenge, the challenge was to create a card or project using "things with wings" .

As stated on their blog, "The Style here is inspired by the likes of Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi, 7 Gypsies and Graphic 45 - among many other Vintage enthusiasts.

I have used papers from The Paper Studio, Simple Elegance.  The birdcage, bird, and flower are Sizzix dies inspired by Tim Holtz.  The button center of the flower is from my stash.  I adhered the birdcage with red line tape in a beveled position.  Pearls by Kaiser and hanging bird is from Jo Ann's jewelry dept.  The sentiment is by Indadinkado.

If you're into this Vintage style, go check out the challenge.  Simon Says Stamp is the ongoing sponsor for this challenge and the prize is fantastic.

Thanks for checking in today.  Have a great Sunday.  Until later..............

I love that birdcage, bird and saying! Beautiful card, as always! I am getting tired of the heat too! My daughter's new husbands Grandpa passed away so we spent the evening at the funeral home. At least it was cool in there!
