Wow! Being away certainly didn't slow down your creative juices, my friend!! These cards are both great!

Love everything about the first one, the layout, the image, the coloring - everything! So very pretty!

The nautical card is also great. I admire how you are able to use so many embellishments without it becoming busy and too cluttered. Hard to do but you nailed it!

Barb said...

I love both of your cards. Merry Weather is too cute and the paper you used with it is perfect!

Great nautical card--love the image!

Great cards! Love your take on the Twisted Tuesday Challenge this week! 7 embellies on a single card seems really daunting to me...you rocked it!
