Fan Mail Friday- Hello 2023!

Hi everyone,

We are so glad that you are joining us for the first Fan Mail Friday of the year. We had a little break here at the office, and are feeling refreshed and recharged to take 2023 by storm! We have lots of incredible projects to show you from Christmas projects and New Year’s cards to thank you cards and more. We love receiving mail from you here at the office, and this week is no exception! Getting to know you is such a treat, and we adore all of the great Christmas letters telling us all about your lives and families. We love being a part of your life! Pay close attention to the sentiments included in today’s cards. There are such fantastic warm wishes on these projects!

Let’s take a look at today’s offerings!

Our friend Jane wished us health and happiness now and always. Same to you Jane! Thank you for this gorgeous card.

Pat made us a beautiful shaped card, and hopes to come back to Atlanta for Create one day.

The rose gold and red matte foil combination on Jenny’s card is so gorgeous. She is excited for all that she has learned and for the things to come in 2023!

I just loved everyone’s creativity and the fun stories. Anna you are so down to earth and I love the fact that you had Red velvet cake, Bacon and champagne for Christmas. You make me smile and laugh. I appreciate you and your staff. A very prosperous New Year to you. Can’t wait to shop till I drop on HSN January 17th.

I so enjoyed seeing everyone’s creations, today! I agree with the requests for more religious based cards and sentiments, especially for Christmas cards. I would also love to buy kitty themed cards, die cuts and dies. ❤️ >^..^<

The creativity in this Fan Mail Friday is incredable!! I loved all of it and so wish I had that talent. I do make cards for a lot of people, mostly family and a few special friends. I loved the story about the cardinal. Here in El Paso, Texas, we don’t have any colorful birds. We have sparrows, mocking birds, black birds, pidgeons and doves. All of them gray, black and brown. I guess it goes with the landscape. Nothing green, everything brown. That isn’t a complaint, all of God’s creation is wonderful. Anna, I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Many years ago now, my father passed away on December 21st and we buried him on December 24th. Needless to say, that Christmas was a very difficult one. I really didn’t feel like celebrating, but with two children, we couldn’t not celebrate. Hope the New Year will bring a lot of happiness into your life. You are such a wonderful and generous person. May God richly bless you for all you do for others. You are the best!
