A first go at paper piecing

Their land swarmed with frogs, even in the chambers of their kings.

Psalms 105:30

Today’s card was made using a free digi from A Day For Daisies.  I had a go at some very simple paper piecing.  The digistamp is fab and I think the frog is eyeing up his birhday tea!  The papers were free with a magazine.

Spring pastels

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many woman do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive , and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Proverbs 31:26-31

I have used A Day for Daisies’ freebie to take today’s card.  the digi was coloured with Promarkers in Buttercup, Sunflower and Gold; Lime and Pear green; Dusky Pink and Putty for the skin.  The card was assembled using a sentiment printed out from my computer and craft stickers by .

Ethereal in yellow and green

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

Song of Soloman 2:1

I have used a A Day For Daisies digistamp for today’s card.  She has little goldfish swimming around her but I decided not to do this as an underwater scene but in spring colours.
