A Very Special Offer, Plus A New Product!

Posted on:

Dear friends,

Greetings in 2016! Thank you for all your kind emails, prayers and encouragement!
Calendar

The WHO I AM Perpetual Desk Calendar (see pictures below) will be printed in the next few weeks, the Lord willing. This calendar will be expensive to print, because the pages are high-quality, vibrant art prints (8.5 by 5.5 inches) and it also needs to be bound. (I also want to keep the cost affordable for our customers.)

So, in an effort to raise the funds so that we can print an adequate quantity of this calendar, we would like to extend a very special offer to our customers. If you place an order of $30 or more (plus shipping) by January 31st with Flower Girl Greetings, I will also send you a free Hebrew Names of God Collection. As many of you know, the Hebrew Names of God Collection is one of our customer favorites. This is an awesome deal extended for a very short time!

We will keep you informed with the date that the WHO I AM Perpetual Desk Calendar is ready for purchase! This calendar will make a beautiful gift for anyone at any time of the year. We are very excited about it and how God is already using it in our lives. For more information and photos about the calendar, please keep reading.

God bless you!
Beth Ann

The Cover Page of the Calendar reads,
Who I am
Reminders for Each Month of Every Year
A Perpetual Desk Calendar

The 2nd Page of the Calendar gives the information about the Calendar and how to use it.

    Card back:
    The Lord recounted to Job His wisdom and might as seen in His creation:

Who enclosed the sea with doors when bursting forth it went out from the womb; when I made a cloud its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, and I placed boundaries on it and set a bolt and doors, and I said, “Thus far you shall come, but no farther; and here shall your proud waves stop?” (Job 38:8-11)

O Lord God of hosts, who is like You, O mighty Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. You rule the swelling of the sea; When its waves rise, You still them. (Psalm 89:8-9)

The floods have lifted up their voice; The floods lift up their pounding waves. More than the sounds of many waters, than the mighty breakers of the sea, the Lord on high is mighty. (Psalm 93:3-4)

If I take the wings of the dawn, and dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will lay hold of me. (Psalm 139:9-10)   How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. (Psalm 139:17-18)

O, Lord, majestic and detailed, mighty and gentle, vast and personal, we lift up our voice in praise to You!

  3. Refuge – This cards is a collage; it has the entire Psalm 46 on the back as follows:

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake at its swelling pride. Selah.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
The holy dwelling places of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations raged, the kingdoms tottered;
He raised His voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has wrought desolations in the earth.
He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariots with fire.
“Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.

  1. Sparrow – This card is a collage; it has the hymn “His Eye is on the Sparrow” on the back, plus Scripture.

God bless you,

September – It’s Time to Gather!

Posted on:

It’s that time of year again when we think about special people and how we can express what they’ve meant to us throughout the year. What meaningful gifts can I give? Shall I have a get-together? What special events is my church organizing? How can I stay within my budget?

Hosting a Flower Girl Greetings event in your home or church is a lovely answer. Our events are refreshing times of fellowship and focus on the beauty of God’s Word.

Host An Event

The events provide a unique time to gather with friends to reflect upon and consider the Gift Collections and Individual Cards that would be appropriate for your friends. They provide unhurried time to read the devotional writings on the back of the cards and make your selections.

We have made every effort to keep our prices as low as possible, while still being able to provide an exquisite, personal and lasting gift. Whether you need a gift for a teacher, a Bible study leader, pastor, family member or friend, Flower Girl Greetings Card Collections are ideal.

For details and to host an event, please call us at 614-664-9547, email us, or contact us through the website.

Our events are not “multi-level marketing” events. They are simply gatherings to share a beautiful gift idea and an inspirational interlude to share our story of how God started our company. See My Story. We have free gifts for all who attend, extreme sales on discontinued cards, and a special gift for the hostess. If you would prefer to invite a group of your friends to my home instead, please Contact me to schedule.

God bless you!
Beth Ann

October 2014 Sale! – Our Special Hebrew Names of God Gift Collection

Posted on:

Welcome October!
Announcing our October Sale of the Hebrew Names of God Gift Collection!

hebrew names of god gift collection original art

We considered our original price of $30 to be amazing. And now, for the month of October, this beautiful Gift Collection is just $24.

The Hebrew Names of God Gift Collection is another way I am sharing my passion to magnify the beauty, power and comfort of God’s Word and to make it easy for you to send tangible, lasting greetings.

This Collection contains 12 large, thick, vibrant, frame-able cards, each with a different Name of God. That means, each card is only $2!

And just like our other Collections of 4, the Hebrew Names of God Gift Collection can be given as a Gift Collection, or the cards can be sent individually.  I just sent the El Roi card a few days ago to a young lady for her birthday.

The front of each card is a print of original artwork.  The back of each card contains the meaning and story for each Name, along with encouraging, devotional thoughts. So, you can use the cards for a 12-week Bible study.

You may see the enlarged views of the front and back of each card on our website. Just go to:  http://flowergirlgreetings.com/shop/hebrew-names-of-god/ and click on the thumbnail of the card you want to view and read.

God bless you and fill your autumn season with the warm and beauty of His presence,
Beth Ann

The Great Freight – The large project has been completed!

Posted on:

Dear friends,

Our very large project was completed last Saturday, and I have been taking time to rest and get caught up on things around here. I hope to give you all the news about our fun time with the project sometime next week. We had a blast!

This past Tuesday, I went to our printer to view the final skids of the boxed Hebrew Names of God Gift Collections that had been prepared for shipment to our customer.  Below is a photo of the 1,070 boxes (36 Collections in each box).

Many thanks go to our 53 workers (Collators, Packagers, Sealers, Boxers, Box-Breaker-Downers, Skid-Removal-and-Arrival Assistants, Box Re-stockers,  Lunch-Makers, Garden-Produce-Providers, Celebration-Chocolate-Cake Maker, Encouragers, and Prayer Warriors). Their very hard, integritous work was so appreciated!  Every worker was like manna from heaven, provided for His purposes at just the right time.

Please join me in praising the Lord for His surprising and gracious ways, and please pray for the hearts of the recipients of His Word that is going out to so many through these cards.

We decorated the last cake Ben made with the words, “To God be the glory, freight things He has done!”  Yes, that is “freight” !!!  – a word that now speaks of God’s greatness to me, because the hugeness of the order took our project from shipping charges to freight charges!

May you know the height and the depth and the breadth of God’s love for you today, so that you may be filled to all the fullness of God!

Much love in Jesus,

Beth Ann

Our Press Check at Pressworks

Posted on:

We were very happy to have our greeting cards printed once again at Pressworks, Inc. in Plain City, Ohio. This is now our 3rd printing! Due to the fire at Pressworks last year, we went to the kind people at Westcamp Press in Westerville, Ohio for our 2nd printing last fall.  We are glad to be back at Pressworks and to see their new facilities and all the “new green grass” that is growing after the fire devastated parts of the facility.

I have to thank Jim and his team for attending so well to the high standards we hold for our cards with regards to the pre-press process, printing, scoring, folding, cutting, and delivering. I am so grateful for their patience and concern for the detail!

Seen below:  “Happy” Jack, Jim Lucas (Salesman and Overseer of the process), Dusty and  me. This is where we view the color coming off the big huge offset printer, approve and sign the big sheet, and eagerly await their delivery. You got the color right, Jack! Thanks!
