We have left for our mini break this morning but here is a card that I managed to make before we left, again using Seaside Seagulls by MFT.
The sentiment reminds me of the silly seagulls talking in Finding Nemo (you can watch that particular clip HERE).  It always makes me laugh...I'm a child at heart!

My Favorite Things Seaside Seagulls stamps
I first of all stamped and coloured two of the seagulls using Copic markers and then cut them out using my Pixscan mat on the Silhouette Cameo.  I am trying to save money by not ordering matching dies which means I have more to spend on stamps.  Hoorah!
I then cut out 2 sections of card using a cloud die to make the waves and used distress inks to colour them in.  I then covered each piece of card in Versamark ink and covered that with clear shhparkly embossing powder.  It creates a lovely shimmery look.  I also created the cloud background using some dye ink.

Seaside Seagulls by My Favorite Things used to make an anniversary card
I am going to give this card to my husbean for our anniversary on Friday.  While I was making it he kept popping in and out of my craft room so I had to keep covering it up so he wouldn't see it....which is probably why in my haste I missed putting the second layer of waves on after I had stuck it all together!  Luckily, I managed to wiggle it in.
I popped the seagulls up on foam dimensionals and cut a frame which was also popped up on the card base using foam tape.
Finally I added some hearts that I punched out using some glitter cardstock.
