Calligraphy Flourish Friday - Reason to Celebrate!

As promised, this week I'm hosting a giveaway to celebrate my 50th birthday.  If you live in the USA and would like a chance at winning one rubber stamp of my "Don't stumble over something behind you" lettering, then simply leave a comment on this blog post at Blogger (Please: not on Facebook, not at Flickr, and not via email).  The rubber stamp is new, unused and made of red rubber. (Pictured at top.) It is mounted on a wood block measuring 2.25 inches x 2.25 inches.  (Ink pad not included.)

Have you heard the Grrrreat News?!

 Incoming IAMPETH President, Heather Victoria Held, has announced the 2014 IAMPETH Convention will be right here in Indianapolis! Woohooo!!! I am so excited!  Mark your calendars, get your ducks lined up, and come to The Crossroads of America! If you are not already a member of IAMPETH, then now is a good time to join.  The membership year begins July 1st, and dues are $35 per year.  As a member, you will receive the Penman's Journal 4 times per year AND receive the 2014 convention registration materials early.  You can learn more about joining IAMPETH at their website by clicking: HERE
  :) Let's celebrate... having a second giveaway prize!  This is a 20" x 24" canvas print of my Isaiah 54:10 (NIV) calligraphy.

The sides are printed in black.  It is not pre-wired for hanging, but it does come with hanging hardware.  Again, if you live in the USA and would like a chance to win this canvas print or the rubber stamp then  leave a comment below here at Blogger.  You have until Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 1pm Eastern Time to enter. Please be sure your first name is included in the comment. One entry per person, please. I have removed the word verification system, but I will approve each comment before it posts.   There may be a delay before your comment appears.

**The registration deadline has now passed. I have closed the option to comment.  I will announce the winners sometime on Friday, July 26, 2013.  Thank you!**

I will announce both winners on Friday, July 26, 2013.
I will use to select the winners.  The first winner will receive the rubber stamp, the second winner will receive the canvas print.
Thank you for your continued support and following along on my journey.
I appreciate your interest!
Go forth and flourish!!

  1. What a wonderful chance to win your calligraphy. Thank you.
    I enjoy your Flourish Fridays, and all your posts, even though you are a Purdue supporter. My son was a student at IU, and many, many years ago, my brother also went to IU, so that's where our loyalties lie.

  2. What a great opportunity--Your work is first rate! (Robert)

  3. Jane, you could probably have heard me scream from FL to NM when it was announced that IAMPETH 2014 would be in Indianapolis. I will finally get to meet you!!! and so many others...the Lord willing.

    Blessings to you and your family.

  15. Exploring my love of handlettering & calligraphy simply as a hobby, i was thrilled to bookmark your site to come back to again and again. Your work is uplifting and inspiring. May your kindness and generosity be returned to you tenfold!

  16. I'm totally delighted with your recently-arrived calligraphy-print showing Phil. 4: 6 & 7 -- and I really appreciate your additional gift of the lovely bookmark! And the thank-you note showing my name in such lovely script! And the hand-addressing of the envelope! It was definitely Christmas in July and I thank you sincerely! If I were to win the rubber stamp it would be frosting on the cake ... but frosting or no frosting, I'm happy. I love your work!

  17. Happy Birthday, a bit late!!! What a lovely thing to do, for all of us, on YOUR birthday! :D
    I just joined IAMPETH!!! And I will be in Indianapolis barring some unforseen complication, can't WAIT to meet you and give you a big hug! Your rubber stamp is terrific, we have to talk!
    Thanks for the link to make joining IAMPETH easy, take care! xoxo
