Want to meet an angel? And win a giveaway? :)

(Warning: This is a long post.  But keep reading – it is worth it. 🙂

Know any angels?

I know one.

Her name is Connie Williams.

She owns my local stamp store, Stamp Your Art Out.  And owns a stamp company called Verses Stamp Company.

Why is Connie an angel?  She is extremely giving.  She is constantly doing fundraisers to support Hospice. She is thoughtful in many ways.

So… a couple days ago, I got an email from her offering $100 to help pay to ship the cards for the Card Drive to Africa.  I was floored!  That will be so very helpful.  (I had intended to cover the costs of shipping the prizes and shipping the cards, so this was a nice gesture on her part.)

I encourage you to visit her online store.  She has all greeting stamps for every occasion… even those hard-to-find ones. Here are some cards I did with Verses stamps…

Verses 1
Verses Thinking of You Stamp (I covered the tops of the flowers with paper flowers)
Black Memories Ink
Doodlebug flowers
Hero Arts pearls
Bo Bunny paper
Stampin' Up punch
Creative Impressions ribbon

Get Well Verses7
Verses Get Well Vertical Stamp
Hero Arts Bird stamp and gems and clear card
Black Memories Ink
Doodlebug flowers
Bo Bunny paper
Creative Impressions ribbon
Prismacolor colored pencils
(For a video showing the coloring technique on the bird, click HERE.)

Hug Verses
Verses Sending a Hug Stamp
Hero Arts heart stamps (hearts and circles), notecards and gems
Cuttlebug Embossing
Black Memories Ink
(This card is short on the front. The top of the front half is at the green line. The pink is on the inside of the card.)

This one I have shared before, but it has a Verses stamp…


Verses Thoughts and Prayers stamp
Making Memories, Bo Bunny and Scenic Route papers
Hero Arts pearls and flowers and notecard
Creative Impressions silk ribbon

Here are some of my other favorite Verses stamps:

  • On THIS page, "BB0601-E Twinkle, Twinkle" is a clever birthday stamp. Oh, and I LOVE vertical greetings like "BB0424-C Happy Birthday Vertical."
  • THIS page has great stamps about faith.
  • On THIS page, I have to get "S0117-B Even More."
  • "Get Well" cards are tough.  THIS page has a great ones: "W0626-F Cozy & Comfy."
  • On THIS page, "QQ0837-F Souls in this world" is fun for a friend. Another good one is "QQ0833-D Friends Beside You".  This was in FABULOUS for any Christians out there: "QQ0834-D God's Promise."

She also has cool card and envelope templates HERE. This is my favorite…


And $2 rub-ons?  Woohoo!  Look HERE.

Thanks again, Connie.  This world needs more angels like you!

Now… time for a giveaway!  Connie gave me a few stamps to give as prizes here.  So, leave a comment telling me what your favorite greeting message is (can be as simple as "thank you") on this post by Thursday at 11:59PM and I will pick TWO winners of theses TWO stamps:

Picture 2   Picture 3

Oh, and a big thanks to a few others, including Cass and Jill, who have sent a bit of money to cover the shipping costs.  I appreciate it more than you know! 

Come back tomorrow – it's Card Drive Prize Time! 🙂

OK… off to veg a bit!

  1. I saw a stamp that says for the back of the card, “If you knew how long it took me to make this card, you would never throw it away” HAHA! i love that one.
    also love the word Cherish.

  2. Thanks for your wonderful inspirations! Some of my favorites are “Birthday Blessings” and “Sending you a hug.”

  3. I love the word Happy on the front of the card…
    that way on the inside you can write Birthday, you made me…
    to be your friend…
    whatever it is that is making this card giving a happy occasion.

  4. I like Hello Friend, Blessings to you.
    Sending a smile. The general “feel good” friendship kind of sayings.

  5. WOW, I am loving this blog and the thoughtful, caring and talented people. I guess my favorite would be “I love you” I think everyone needs to hear those words once in awhile.(know I do)

  6. I like the ones that are short and sweet. “Thinking of You” and “Sending you a hug” are a perfect pair. Endless possibilities!!

  7. I have a little stamp that says, “Life is good with you in it.” Who wouldn’t want to hear that????? Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. How generous of Connie!!
    I love that “Sending you a Hug” stamp…thanks for this chance to win!

  9. I love the “sending you a hug” stamp! So often a hug is all that is really needed to convey words that we don’t know how to say. I also like the words “just because” for cards.

  10. Thank you for inspiring me jennifer mcguier. I love when somebody says that I am a huge part of their world and when they say that whenever they are sad, I cheer them up.

  11. Dear Jennifer mcguier,
    You are the most amazing and talented person I ever knew. Thank you for inspiring me in every way possible. My favorite greeting is I love you because it gives a burst of warmth and happiness into my heart. I hope you take this message into consideration. Thank you Jennifer mcguier for taking the time to read this message!
