Jesus Loves Me This I Know !

Just a quick post to share two cards made for a friends twin daughters. I usually keep them similar but try to  make each one a little bit different. Here I have used papers from my new Doodlebug pad, just changed the colour scheme. They do seem a little bright for our gloomy UK weather but they will be going to warmer climes so won't be out of place ! I used a new [to me] stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs, which I am sure  will get a lot of use. I have another set ,so hope to post some more cards soon. I was surprised to have to pay an extra £12 when they arrived, £4 VAT and £8 handling charge to the Post Office. I never had to pay anything when I had them shipped to Cyprus! Fortunately one of the sets was being discontinued and was reduced in price.

I couldn't get good photos ,fortunately my son has just begun GCSE Photography so I may be able to pick up a few tips soon! I have a feeling a new camera may be one of his suggestions!

Hymn and Scripture Challenge - This is My Father's World

What a lovely hymn Patter has chosen for this challenge , you can read her wonderful post  here :

It's wonderful at this time of the year to go out into the garden or visit parks and countryside alive with all types of flowers and vegetation. There is also wonder to be found in the assortment of bugs and little creatures which accompany them ! Although I am not particularly fond of insects I can still marvel at the intricate wings  on butterflies and moths and little spider legs scuttling along the paths. Only our Heavenly Father could have created them.

I wanted to use some bright colours on my page so some new paper was in order. I don't think they come much brighter than Doodlebug Designs , I think I will enjoy using them during the summer months.

For my scripture I have used Nehemiah 9:6 , sorry about the poor photo but if you click on the picture you should be able to read it a little clearer.
