Here's my card for MMTPT187. We were to make a card using images of the sea. I used colors that remind me of the ocean, added some sunshine, a palm tree, and some surfboards. I must have been successful with my theme since I attracted a couple of seagulls. I believe one of them is the missing Lola with her new beau (Jonathan Livingston Seagull perhaps???). Actually, these seagulls were spotted near the Wabash River in southern Indiana, and my husband photographed them just a couple of weeks ago. When I told him about this card, he shared the photograph with me. I recognized Lola immediately and coaxed her to the tea party. It wasn't hard to persuade her to attend because seagulls live to eat and she was hungry (not to mention the Wabash River is a poor substitute for an ocean resort). Afterwards, she and her new guy will fly to South Carolina to Tickle a Teapotter, Robin (RJP111), this week's Destination Station. Hugs to you, Robin.

Ooh Lorie! Wowza...what a wonderful seaside card you created for Robin! This card is so happy, and cheerful, and such a great addition to the teaparty! You did good.....just the ticket to get Lola her man, I hear that Jonathan dude is quite the catch! I knew Lola was special! Giggle!
What an awesome way to incorporate REAL seagulls (Lola and friend!) into your card! You must thank MelodyGuy for his contribution to a Teapot Tuesday! Tee hee! He rocks! I love that you are back with another great card this week! Robin will be so touched with your happy little seaside scene!
