Dayle said, “Thought I would try combining Anna’s feather dies with the mini pumpkins and leaf dies for an Autumn card.  The paisley papers and embellishments I used are just so beautiful for fall.”

What a great combination, Dayle!

Beverly shared, “Hi Anna & team. I just finished a Birthday Card for my nephew and I am doing something I have never done before.  I was so pleased with how this turned out that I thought I would send you a photo of my card and the inspiration for it.  See what you think…

An antique car is on display in a museum.
I am excited to hear my nephew’s reaction when he receives it! Thank you for creating this die.  You might think about adding a tractor die to this collection (train, car, etc.) for all of the farmers out there!”
Great card, Beverly. We know that your nephew enjoyed your creation!
Diane P wrote, “Finally tried out my new Sleigh Slimline Easel Dies.  It went together very easily and reminds me of the story, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’!”

Hello Anna & Greetings to all the Griffinites
This week was another wonderful offering of creativity! The lovely Madonna and Child card Terry made really stood out to me. Joy has a special eye for adding layers and textures to her Flower Cart cards like none other :-) Thanks to everyone who shared their creations. Blessings
