Be Brave, It Is Well With My Soul, and more

Hi everyone, just popping in with a bunch of cards to share.  It's Thursday April 16, 2020, and I've been in quarantine for one month exactly!  In some ways, it feels longer, and in some ways, not that long. 

Last night I helped my husband trim his hair outdoors on the patio.  That was a first.  I've cut my own bangs twice, but that's easy.  It's the highlights in my hair that I will not attempt.  Will have to wait until I'm allowed to see my hairdresser again for her finesse and expertise! 😭
The girls have long straight hair, no bangs.  They can coast for a good long while.  LOL

Had to go to the bank today.  Only the drive-through is open, and only two lanes.  The lines were fairly long, but not too bad.  I went armed with patience. 😀  I felt badly for the two bank tellers, who were trying to do their jobs with masks, gloves, and offering as much good cheer as they could, despite testy customers.  Hopefully, we won't have too much longer to be in quarantine.  Though we did just get notification from our governor that all NJ schools will be closed until mid-May.  So...I'm thinking that senior prom will probably not be happening.  😢

Holy smokes have you been busy! These are all fantastic Colleen. I think the one with the lavender inside of the gray circle is my favorite, but they're all terrific!

Wowsa! I'm impressed! You are so productive. Okay, I give up...there's so much creative loveliness in this batch it's impossible to pick a favorite; they're all wonderful!!!

These are all GORGEOUS! I see lots of stamp images I just love in there...that little bee skep (which I have), the shell plate (which I also have, thanks to you), but that little bird's nest...oh so cute! I have something similar, might have to pull it out! Such beautiful colors, embellishments and images all!

So, I wonder, are these new cards or are they newly edited cards? It sure is a pretty group! I always especially love the seashell cards. Your routine sounds very familiar to me. Same at our credit union -- drive through only. Glad I let my hair go natural a few years ago so I don't have to worry about coloring. I'll trim my bangs and wear a hair band or clips. There's always a way. I'm glad you're hanging in there!
