Our Thanksgiving Collection

Posted on:

Thanksgiving1Dear friends,

Each card in Thanksgiving Collection can be used as a greeting for Thanksgiving Day or to express thanks to someone who has blessed us with their kindness throughout the year.

The entire Thanksgiving Collection of four cards is also a beautiful gift if you want to send more than a card. You may call us at (614) 664-9547 if you want us to wrap a white fabric bow around the Collection, include a personal note, and send the Collection for you.

Thanksgiving2Here are the details of the four cards included in this Collection:

Grateful praise – The design on this card is an oil painting that I painted in the outdoors. The mustard yellow words on the front are, “Lord of all to Thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise!” The card also includes two stanzas from the hymn For the Beauty of the Earth on the back.

Shout joyfully – The front of this cards says, “Shout joyfully to God all the earth; Sing the glory of His Name, make His praise glorious!

Thank you – The artwork for this card was created with pressed pansies and pointed-pen calligraphy

Thy lovingkindness – The front of this card says, “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Thy Name O Most High, To declare Thy lovingkindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness by night. (Psalm 92:1-2)

God bless you,

Beth Ann

Beautiful Word

Posted on:

Dear friends,

This greeting card is called Beautiful Word and is found in the Quietness Collection.  The original artwork for this greeting card was created in an oil painting workshop taught by nationally-known, award-winning impressionist painter, Mark Gingerich.

Beautiful WordOn the first day of the workshop, Mark asked us to arrange our own still life setting. Since I had not worked with oil paints for a long time, I knew I needed subject matter that inspired me. I arranged a still life that included items representing my passions – my Bible of 35 years, flowers, and then study books – items that symbolized the beauty and depth of God’s Word.

I drew the composition onto the canvas, painted major blocks of color with a few details, and then Mark applied the master’s finishing touches. This painting is a collaboration that expresses Mark’s unique giftedness. This is the only Flower Girl Greeting card that is not solely my artwork or photography, but permission was given to share it with you.

Psalm 119:103 – How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Psalm 119:140 – Your word is very pure, therefore Your servant loves it.

Psalm 138:1-3
I will give You thanks with all my heart;
I will sing praises to You before the gods.
I will bow down toward Your holy temple
And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name.
On the day I called, You answered me;
You made me bold with strength in my soul.

God bless you!
Beth Ann

The Ministry of Writing and Sending Cards

Posted on:

“Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8

Ministry of Card WritingDear friends,

Our mission is to make it easy for you to share the power of God’s Word to those who are struggling, celebrating, or just need to know someone cares. Life is full, and time is precious. We often want to share His encouragement in a tangible way, but life has a way of…happening. So, how do we make it easy?

God’s Word is already powerful. His Word coupled with vibrant colors and sent with your thoughtfulness is an abundant expression of love. So, your words on the inside of the card can be few. A simple “I’m thinking of you” is often enough.

The ministry of card-writing can be a weekly get-away – a rejuvenating quiet time to pray for the people in our lives. For me, it is helpful to carve out a dedicated space with cards, stamps, addresses, and pens. Only one regular stamp is required for each card.

When writing notes, I try to share my heart. Simple is often most impactful, but the cards are large enough if an entire letter is appropriate. I include the date to make each card a lasting remembrance.

If you find yourself at a loss for words, feel free to use the suggestions found on the second page of this document. or for more detail, see Using Flower Girl Greeting Cards for Special Occasions.

God bless you!
