Hi.  Hope you had a great Thursday.  I spent most of the day today watching a live feed
Bald Eagle Cam in Norfolk, Virginia.  Have been watching it since the female laid eggs and
three Eaglets hatched.  Today, though, they removed the babies from the nest and banded them.
Was so emotional to see these babies lined up on the ground, they don't fly or walk yet, looking so vulnerable, waiting their turn for they knew not what!  All went well, it's not their first time doing this and the parents are multiple time parents in this beautiful botanical gardens.  If you are interested, google Eagle Cam then pick the one in Norfolk, Virginia.  They have a live feed with questions and comments also. People from all over the world are watching this family of Eagles.  No night time viewing.

I made this card for the challenge at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC# 100).

The beautiful Easter Egg stamp is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps.  The papers are from DCWC, Cotton Blooms stack and K&Company florals.  The butterfly is from Michael's.  I used a Spellbinders die cut for the squares.  The bunnies running along the bottom are a border punch from Martha Stewart.  I used Star Dust Stickles along the edge of the image. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Friday.  Until later..........
