Happy Memory

Hey There!

Temps are starting to move into the higher digits here...we may open windows tomorrow!

I have wanted this stamp set for a while now, and thanks to a lucky win, it and the matching dies are in my stash.

Every  time I see the sentiment it takes me back to my teen years, and trips to the beach with my girlfriends and my Mom.  She'd tell us were the cute guys were after taking walks along the beach.

On one trip an entire bag of doritos was stolen by some rowdy gulls. They walked up in a group, one to distract us, I am sure, while the other two pecked at the rapidly disintegrating bag and tried to fly off with it...I'm not sure who won the tug of war between the gulls  I just know I laughed  and laughed that day.

I am entering this in two challenges.  Case this sketch-266, and Shopping our Stash - Headed to the Beach.

All stamps and dies are from MFT.  Memento Ink and  Color It Art Markers were used for the birds and sentiment. A left over piece of glitter cardstock made for a sparklie ocean. 

Grab Our Badge!

Thanks much for stopping by!

Your card, and interpretation of our Sketch, makes me smile - almost as big as your shared- memory does, Cat! So glad you got the birds!

I love this, especially the way you tucked two of the gulls into the water! Fabulous take on the sketch!

Loved your story, and such a cute card! Great using the scrap of glitter paper for the ocean (I can never throw scraps of glitter paper away!) Ahh, nothing days "beach day" like a coup with some gulls! Thanks for sharing at SOS this week.

Fabulous way to use the sketch and our theme at SHOPPING OUR STASH. These seagulls are just as cute as can be and the sentiment perfectly fitting.
Thank you for sharing with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you play again soon.

What a great post, Cat ... you transported us to a lovely, fun memory! Your card is brilliant ... such a great ocean scene ... love how a couple of the gulls are bobbing about in the water! Hugs, Anita :)

Love your card! Great take on that sketch and our theme. Of course, I think your memory might be the best thing about your post. LOL! Gotta love those clever gulls! Thanks for joining us for our beach challenge at Shopping Our Stash!

omg, this is SUCH a great card on every level, but YES, i have seen that happen with gulls on the boardwalk in atlantic city!!! they seem to hang out near the concession stands that sell things they like, mostly--it seemed-- french fries. when a customer comes out with the big paper cup they're served in, one gull dive bombs him until he drops the fries and then DINNER IS SERVED! i wonder if anyone is studying the effects of a high fat diet on gulls, lol? meanwhile, yours are very handsome and don't look like they have hypertension! :) :) :)
