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!

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!

That was so enjoyable to watch. There were so many beautiful cards that inspired. I’m a fan of Richard’s work and love the retro HOLIDAY INN movie photo frame easel card with the clock almost at midnight. Actually there was a song with the lyrics saying it was " almost midnight ringing the New Year in". What fun. But I am most impressed with how Anna picks up a card from the many stacks, knows who it’s from and recalls an anecdote from the contents of the letter. It shows how she truly cares about the effort and care fans put in to contribute to FMF. Looks like 2023 is off to a good start!

I thought Richard’s card was so clever, loved the black and white and retro photo. Gave me inspiration to start using my clock die. Happy New Year 2023
