Fan Mail Friday- Birthday Mail Part 2
First of all, thank you for all of the sweet birthday wishes! Today we are sharing the second part of the incredible birthday mail that we received over the past week. These cards, letters and projects made today extra special! There’s nothing quite like getting such warm, heartfelt messages from this community that is like family. Want to see what birthday mail came into the office from Griffinites?
Slice yourself a piece of birthday cake, and come take a look!
We couldn’t help but ooh and ahh over the amazing birthday project that the California Griffinites sent! This gorgeous slimline project shows off a beautiful card with a wonderful sentiment from its creator. Thank you to Maria, Lourdes, Heidi, Geri, Jan, Karen, Kimberly, Jane, Myrna, Lisa, Coral, Linda, Sharon, Marie, LaQueta, JoDee, Christine, and Marianne! This is so thoughtful.
This box will be treasured forever!
It looks like Carte Noire is a favorite!
Carol sent this pretty pink and black birthday card! She said that she was so fortunate to attend both Create 6 and Create 7, and they were both “buckle up buttercup” experiences. So fun! We hope that you will join us for Create 8!
We received the prettiest pink card and letter full of birthday wishes from our friend Laura in Arizona. We are so excited that you are joining us in November for Create 8, Laura! She’s never missed an event!
How pretty is this card that Zaida sent in? This is one of the tutorials that we have available in Finishing School, and we love all of the gorgeous details and butterflies Zaida included. So pretty!
Richard made this birthday card that is fit for a queen! Inside his card, he gave a sentiment about Leos. It reads, “Engaging and gracious, the Leo is incredibly enchanting. Optimistic by nature, spontaneous and adventurous, the Leo is goal oriented and destined for success. Loyal, fun, spirited and incredibly charming, the Leo is a pleasure to be around. A leader and protector, the Leo is strong yet gentle and kind hearted.
Are you a fellow Leo? Tell us in the comments!
Jane sends birthday blessings and this pretty, floral card to celebrate!
Sue made this lovely happy birthday card, John Grossman card and letter. Thank you, Sue you are so sweet!
There is so much love and kindness contained in all of the pages of these letters, and beauty in the cards that you sent. Again, thank you for making this birthday extra special and celebratory! Your thoughtfulness means the world!
Love them all

Happy, Happy Birthday month Anna. You,of course deserve the most beautiful Birthday cards ever!!
Truly amazing Birthday wishes for a truly amazing woman.
I didn’t get to finish your card as my husband has been having health issues and my time to craft has been limited to almost none. But he did tell me to go ahead and purchase Create 8 and take it out of the house budget and not my Crafting budget. He said it was something enjoyed and he wanted me to do it.
I do hope your Birthday was a very blessed day. I hope the time you took off has rejuvenated you and given you some fun memories to scrapbook and remember.
You truly are an amazing woman and your influence is far reaching. You are a fine example for young girls and women to look up to. I hope you know that.
All of the beautiful and breathtaking cards and gifts for our Queen on her birthday! All hail Queen Anna!
Wishing you the happiest of birthdays Anna! Your beautiful products have allowed me to make some beautiful cards that bring such joy to the recipients!
I am already receiving messages from friends to see if I am making “ those beautiful cards” again this year! They are also asking for “hints” about what they will look like!

Very impressive all of the projects presented this week. I enjoyed see all of them, great job everyone. Love them all, such creative. Enjoy your weekend everyone and please stay safe.
Whew, the projects were all amazing. They show what can be done with all of your products when inspiration hits. Unfortunately, I could barely hear you, Anna, even when my volume was way up. I think it may be when your mic is clipped to your tie piece. It happened another time before this. Your comments are so worth hearing. Loving your poists, with joy, Bev
Happy Birthday Anna🥂Cheers❣🤗
Wishing you a wonderful day and a great year.
BTW, today is also my daughter’s birthday.
I truly hope your birthday is wonderfully enchanting!
