Scripture Designs Review + Giveaway!!

Scripture Designs was the perfect company for me to contact, since I really enjoy writing letters. (My family can definitely relate to this:)  I was able to pick a pack of the Photographic Christian Notecards to review, so I chose the "Backyard Butterfly Notecards." The photos are sooooo vivid, clear, and beautiful!! There are 6 cards in a pack, along with envelopes: 2 Fritillaries, 2 Monarchs, and 2 Tiger Swallowtails. My favorites were the Monarch and Tiger Swallowtail ones, and I have used both Monarch cards to write a note to my grandmother and to a friend. There is also a King James Bible verse on each one, making it even more special! 


The back
 I first heard about Scripture Designs from a friend's blog, so for those who do not know about Scripture Designs...let me fill you in:)


"You may be wondering who owns and runs Scripture Designs, where they live and what they’re like. My hope is that this article will help to answer your questions and enable you to get to know us a little bit better.


We are a small, family run business located in rural Connecticut. In order for you to meet our business team you must, of necessity, meet our family, the Stover family, because the two are inseparable. As a Christian, Home School family, our parents chose a quiet, simple lifestyle, enabling us to become what family should be, each others best friends. There is no one on this earth that I would rather talk to, work with or spend time with than my family. We admire each other and encourage one another on to greater levels of success. Though we each have our own areas of expertise we endeavor to do everything together! Scripture Designs is simply an extension of our togetherness.


Three of the young people in our family, Jeremiah, Hannah and Sarah, worked together to spearhead the launch of Scripture Designs early in 2007. Before long others of the family began showing a genuine interest in what we were doing. Today the three of us, along with our parents and six other siblings, participate together in the various aspects of running the business."


Read about the artist of the "Backyard Butterfly Notecards":


"About the Artist: Hannah Stover. Growing up in the hills of Connecticut cultivated in Hannah an early and deep appreciation for all of God’s creation, but especially for the wildflowers she enjoyed bringing home to identify. While quite young she developed an interest in art, first in handwork like embroidery and later in the more refined skills of sketching and painting. Here her knowledge of wildflowers became invaluable as, with pencil and pad, she produced detailed reproductions of the flowers she so enjoyed. Soon she also began exploring the possibilities of photography and would spend hours following butterflies around the gardens, or walking the neighboring brooks after a Spring downpour in search of tumbling waterfalls. Not content to merely be creating art, she began to seek for a way to share her skill and creation’s beauty with others. This desire sparked the beginning of Scripture Designs which now features her art in both card and Scripture print forms. Each new design incorporates portions of Scripture, thus testifying to her love, not only for the beauty of creation but also for the God Who created it."
