Where have I been?

And did you miss me?  Zack, Ernie and I had the most EXCELLENT vacation in a cottage, on the beach, in Maine with my two brothers, their significant others and children the first week of July.  It has taken me this long (ten days) to recover.  I can't WAIT to do it again...

SO... back to crafting! 

I kinda just threw these together after CASEing one Sherry had sent me in an email.  The paper is all from K&Company's "Tim Coffey" collection.  I punched the flourish from the same paper.  I thought my bottom bordered piece was too tall so I added the ribbon and LOVED it!  The sentiment is from Sherry.  She and I have exchanged some sentiments to broaden our card making capabilities.  It's great to try new things... :)


  1. Hi Cindy! Welcome back! If you get a chance, let me know where you stayed in Maine. I've always wanted to go back and vacation there but need ideas on good spots. Your card is so gorgeous!

    1. Hi Sherry... we rented a cottage in Ocean Park, Maine. It is part of Old Orchard Beach which has an amusement park as well as the most gorgeous beaches in the world. I'm definitely biased as I've spent almost all my summers as a child on these beaches. This was the first time I had to rent something to stay there as the home that was my family's was sold...

  2. Beautiful card, Cindy! Welcome back!

  3. ...Yes we missed you! Love this card and the tones and colors!

  4. The flourish is just the perfect touch. I have never made one of thse scrap cards. I tried one and it was not good. Yours are marvelous

  5. Love everything about these and welcome back to the blogosphere! Now I know how to use the flourishes on my Cricut carts. Thanks for the inspiration! BTW, I am not kidding when I tell you I had a dream last night that we met. We were both at a kiddie party for a mutual friend. Too bad we didn't get to talk much before I woke up though, lol!
