Lion Hugs

I am pleased to show off the picture I painted for my nephew's new baby!  She was just born last week and is so tiny!  I hope they keep this in her room to remind her that God's loving arms are always around her. 
 I used Lion Hugs, a digi image I created for Squigglefly.  I printed it on Canson 140 lb water colour paper, and water-coloured it using mostly Distress Inks, and a couple of Tombow pens. 
  I relate to being the wee little lamb in God's big strong arms.  I find that to be a comforting thought.
I printed the Bible verse onto water colour paper too and used a Spellbinders Fancy Tag die to cut it out. 
I have this posted on my challenge blog in keeping with the "Love" theme for this month.  Why not go and check it out!  You still have til the end of Feb to join in, and I'm offering five digi's to a random challenge player!  Find details HERE. 
Thank you for your visit today! 
God bless you!!
