Today is my Dad’s 75th Birthday – I’ve got to make him a card…
Georgie is sporting a cone from his recent neutering. He won’t stay still long enough for a good picture, but he was very interested in my present wrapping last night.
On to this week’s winners!
There were so many fantastic ideas on your crafting wish lists – I loved reading through all of them. Either I can read minds or we are just totally on the same page, because so many of your suggestions are already in the works for 2014! I think you are going to be very pleased with what’s coming up.
Remember that we will take a quick break from previews and giveaways next week in celebration of the Christmas holiday. We will start back on Monday, December 30th with a giveaway on Friday, January 3rd, and then that will leave just one more week until the January 10th shows! Oh, and did I mention we are on again in February AND March? Whew!
We’ve still got one more anniversary item to show you, along with new scrapbooking goodies and fantastic new things for your Cuttlebug…
Now, let’s meet this week’s 5 lucky winners!
1. Madge McCulloch- Christmas 3D stickers & holiday gift tag set
2. Kristi W.- Snowflake dies & holiday label stickers
3. Diane A.- Chalkboard Stamps
4. Laura Lowther-Blake- All about love kit
5. Cat Carpenter- Anniversary cardstock
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I enjoy using your products (papers,embossing folders, die cuts, & your Cricut cartridge) but I’m quite anxious to know if there is going to be another Cricut cartridge & if there is that you could include one or two of you beautiful bows on the cartridge. Thank you & I’m patiently waiting for your next appearance on HSN.

I would be honored to win any item of yours, but you know I will get my hands on them no matter what. I can never seem to have enough of your beautiful things at my fingertips. Happy New Year to you and Georgie, and you are so lucky to have your Dad with you. Hopes for another happy year for him too! Can’t wait to see the new pieces to your gorgeous craft puzzle!! Sincerely, Lefty Lou

Even though I would love to be a winner I already am with the Anna Griffin products. I took this years Christmas Holiday Trimming Card making kit to our Work Christmas Party. I place all the items on a long table and each employee picked out a card and up to 7 embellishments. It was amazing to see what 40 people would do with their own cards. Beautiful! As an additional twist my boss had each individual sign the back of their own cards and pass them around the to the person next to them and write “one positive word” about their co-worker. Anna, your cards were circulating around the room with so much joy and lots of ooooohs and ahhhhhs! By the time our own card returned to us our beautifully designed cards were filled with 40 wonderful words that our co-workers wrote. What a way to start the Holiday season! Thank you Anna for bringing such joy to me with your beautiful products. (Oh, and 3 women approached me for your website address!). Wishing you and your family and team and happy and prosperous holiday season!

Hello Anna and Team (Hey, Ashley!)
Congratulations to the lucky winners. They received an early Christmas present. . . how exciting! Please give a pat to Georgie for me. Poor baby. That is so cool that your dad is having his 75th birthday. Hope it is wonderful.
I hope you know how blessed we all feel to be a part of Anna Nation. It’s been so much fun over the years watching your products develop, but this year has been absolutely the best ever. You should feel very proud of your accomplishments and try to relax over the holiday. You deserve it!
May you and yours have a memorable, safe and joyous Christmas and New Year.
Kind regards from Jarrettsville Maryland.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Little Old England
My daughter and I have had such an enormous amount of fun using your beautiful products to make cards and scrapbook pages. Naturally we have received fantastic compliments from the recipients.
We are really looking forward to your visit to the UK, I know you will bring lots of gorgeous new things. If you only had a little extra time during your whirlwind visit you could come to tea at our house. My daughter makes lovely cupcakes as well. Please visit UK soon, we would love to see Chinoiserie and Masculine card things over here. Love to you, your team and Georgie.

Merry Christmas Anna and staff! On Monday I took all my lovely hand made cards to the post office to be hand stamped (I put on two stamps). On Wednesday, 25 of them were returned to me for more postage due as they were deemed parcels. Rats! Back I go to the post office with a smile on my face to bring the total up to $2.07 per card! These were my gifts to my long distance friends, and I was happy to see them off in the mail. Having a huge extra postage sticker on the front was not very attractive, but they will know that I really wanted them to have their card.
As for George and his present fascination, be careful with wired ribbons under the tree. My Maine Coon used to chew on the bows, leaving huge holes in my lovely ribbon! Guess it was like dental floss to my cat! I would pull the wrapped gift from under the tree and realize that I would have to replace the ribbon before it could given. Miss that silly cat. He passed in May. Hug George for me!

I just have to say Anna Griffin products are extremely addictive. Not only that but I am thoroughly enjoying my “issue”. I have ordered so much and, of course, I watched the last shows and found more to addto my collection. I had ordered 2 holiday card kits before the shows aired and then I ordered 2 more later. I record all the shows because Anna really does a wonderful job showing all of us the beautiful things we can make with any of her products. I used to sleep in a bit and now I’m up and looking forward to more time with friends and sharing what I receive on my porch. I can’t say I have a favorite item because as soon as I think I have figured it out I begin working with something else and I just can’t pick. Each product makes me happy and I can’t wait to show it off and with friends. We all love Anna and your special furry friend. I have furry friends too. Thanks so much for SO MANY reasons to keep on giving to others all year long. Cardmaking is a blessing. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL!!!

I used your card kit and embossing folders to make over 50 Christmas cards. Love how they all turned out. I actually made some of them for a small shop nearby. The embossing folders add such an elegant look to the cards. Got the card kits & embossing folders on autoship.

I made my Christmas cards from your Holiday Kit this year and everyone is loving them! My husband is telling everyone not to dare to throw them away! I saved the best one for him.
Merry Christmas to you and your staff!

Hello Crafters, Love Anna Griffin anything, I remember when I first started to scrapbook. She came on D Runick(spelling?) scrapbooking show on DIY? I love her projects that she made. I love the victorian. I just bought a cuttlebug Fourish Emblem cut & emboss. It is awesome! I want all of them! Santa?

I hope your holiday time off lets you take a deep breath-your creative juices must need a rest. But that just never stops you. Thank goodness for us you have endless energy. Thank you again for bringing my friends and family closer together. No one believes the cards I make are really CARDS I MAKE! Of course, with a little help from my wonderful left-handed, genie. Be well, and I can’t wait to see more of your non-stop artistic gifts. HAPPY EVERYTHING! Sincerely, Lefty Lou and her three fur balls, Abbie, Chelsea and Sam

I love the picture of your cat. I remember when our very small Persian had that thing around her head- she could not walk more than three steps without tripping and forget running. She finally gave up and just laid around until we took pity on her and cut it down. Hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Just got the “Love” kit (autoship) today. Wanted to sit down right away and start making cards. Everything in the kit is beatiful, I know the cards are going to be so very special. Just have to wait until christmas is over to start on them. You know the old time crunch. Congrats to the winners. Better luck to me and the rest next time. I didn,t win the “Lotto” this time either. I could have used any of that jackpot. Oh well. Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year!

We’ve had several neutered cats through the years and I always laugh when I see them in their “bonnets”. Have a wonderful Christmas, and can’t wait to see all your new goodies in the new year.

Georgie is so sweet looking! My kitty Oliver got neutered last year and he did not miss a beat. I was looking forward to a quiet evening from his kitten antics when I brought him home that afternoon from the vets and it was not to be!
Congrats to all the winners!
Lastly, thank you so much for the Christmas card Anna! I sure will treasure it always. It will be making it into my scrapbook for sure so I can have it in a place I can see it always.

My cats helped with wrapping too. I was lucky enough to find some of your gift tags and stickers in my shopping…. I did very simple ( which I know you are not). I did plain white tissue with a variety of gold ribbons, bells from the craft store, and your lovely tags….
Thank you…. Merry Christmas to you and your Dad and all of your little critters….

I love everything, especially your clear sentiment stamp sets. I hope you make more of those. They are perfect for the insides and fronts of cards!
