Harbour Gulls



I must be in a blue seaside mood this week. This card is made using one of Prairie Fairy Designs new releases from the nautical collection. I think these gulls look just beautiful perched on these logs waiting by the sea. Although we all know them to be scavengers...lol, I am entering these challenges... Cards For Men - long summer days (masculine theme), Stamps R Us - stitches, Corrosive Challenges - for the guys, Bee Crafty - anything goes.

Great colors and whoa where'd you get that wheel embelly :-) Missed you at soccer last night.

What a coincidence Lori....today we spent our day today at the Belgian coast...so we have seen a lot of seagulls...but they were not as beautiful as yours...your steering-wheel is a real finishing touch...great stitching!
The man receiving this card will be very pleased!
