Seeds of Hope, Life is Fragile, and more

Hello again, my friends!  How are you doing today?  Did you spend some time exercising outdoors, or gathering with one another while outdoors, spaced apart?  I hear a lot of neighbors enjoying time outside, either walking, riding bikes, taking dogs for a walk, or listening to music and playing board games on porches.  It is kind of nice, you know what I mean?  People are connecting in ways they haven't in quite some time.  Though we are supposed to keep our distance from each other, there's a different kind of closeness that's developing; it makes my heart happy.

I hope you don't mind I have another post this week. I'm really trying to bang out the photo-editing of my cards, so I can share them here.  Ready?  Here we go!

What a delightful post, Colleen! The designs are use of elements are superb all around! Yes, Social-distancing is sure different and it's like we have never experienced before. We must adjust and adapt! Take good care!

All gorgeous, but I especially like #10 and #11. As for us, we're limited about how far we can walk from our home. It's not supposed to be more than 400 meters or so and not for very long. It's more a way to get a bit of quick fresh air. Also, it's supposed to be alone, not a couple or family outing. We're fortunate to have nice balconies on our apartment so that we can go outside and take the air. I've seen that your state has enacted additional measures today, too. Bon courage!

I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried, but the little cats are pretty cute!
