Fan Mail Friday – Birthday Part 5
We are truly blown away by all of the wonderful cards, letters, projects and birthday wishes this year. Just when you think last year couldn’t be beat, it certainly was! The outpouring of love and creativity from friends all over the US is overwhelming in the best way possible. If you are looking for birthday card inspiration, then you are in the right place. There are so many pretty projects to jumpstart your creative juices!
Buckle up buttercup, today’s Fan Mail Friday is an amazing collection of beautiful, heartfelt projects.
Jean sent in her very first card to us for Fan Mail Friday. It’s wonderful to hear from you, Jean. We are so glad that crafting and your grandson bring you joy.
Melinda was certainly listening when we were talking about birthday traditions. Thank you so much for the special strawberry cake and beach scene; it brings back such happy memories!
Lisa also sent in her first card to Fan Mail Friday, and we are pleased as punch! We are glad that you are a Griffinite!
Ginger and Grace send sweet birthday wishes and photos!
Our friend Dalyce in Texas made this beautiful, blue card and wrote to tell us that her granddaughter is taking a class on the Cricut. How fun!
Suzanne included so many amazing elements into this card. There is a little bit of everything! Pretty, pretty!
It’s always fun to see how you creatively combine our different dies together, and Anne’s card is no exception. She used the Hot Air Balloon Die, 3D Beautiful Gate Die, shadow box and more together to make this spectacular birthday card! Clever!
Adeline is making birdhouses for all of the ladies at her church, and sent one to us too! She sent wishes for a day and month full of family, friends, fun and delicious goodies!
All of our favorite colors are on display in Jane’s card! Thank you so much for this gorgeous card, friend!
This angelic card is from Julia. It’s her first card to us, and she included stunning antique angel postcards. We appreciate the thoughtfulness so much, and loved hearing from you!
This pretty pink and purple card is from Donna. Love the way you added a rich, flocked layer under the Ribbon Edge diecut!
Sandy has been crafting with our items for over 20 years! We hope to meet you in person some day soon too, Sandy! That would be the best.
Maria participated in her first Create event this past year, Crop at Home 2 and is enjoying being a part of the Griffinistas! Thank you for this special card.
Valerie topped her pretty, pink birthday card with a sweet, little butterfly that she crocheted herself. Love the handmade detail so much!
Cynthia sent two pretty cards for Fan Mail Friday. One is a lovely kirigami card with an antique postcard of Washington DC, and the other a gorgeous window looking out to a Parisian scene. Thank you, Cynthia!
Thank you all so much. We couldn’t ask for a better group of people to surround ourselves with. We know for certain that Griffinites are the kindest, most creative and loving crafters on the planet! If you have sent something to the office over the last few weeks, it’s here! Tune in next week for lots more! If you would like to send something in to us for Fan Mail Friday, you can mail it to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324. We look forward to hearing from you! If you would like to take a listen to the free Spotify Anna Griffin Young at Heart playlist we referenced in Fan Mail Friday, then you can listen here! Enjoy!
I can’t believe how beautiful all the cards have been.
All the light bright cards are so refreshing. Jane the pink card with the vellum flowers is exquisite.
I enjoy everyone’s creative talents.
What a month!! So many great wishes, beautiful cards, gifts and letters.
Getting busy after a long summer vacation from crafting.
Thank you griffinites! These cards are just so beautiful!
What a joy to see you opening and sharing the card I sent to you — a special moment for me. All my love!! Barb
More beautiful birthday wishes for our very own beautiful Anna Griffin.
Definitely a years worth of birthday inspiration.
A lot of great cards and pages.
Did Dalyce in Texas use a die or Cricut for the Happy Birthday sentiment?
These beautiful cards have given me some good ideas. The antique angel cards framed with gold die cut is a great idea! I do have a collection of antique greeting cards. Some are small or odd shapes…I think I could just glue them on a card and add gold frames and flowers to make them useful as a greeting card. I always love the Fan Mail Friday.
Wow. So many beautiful cards 😍 ♥
Lovely birthday cards and sentiments!👏🏽👏🏽🥰🙋🏻♀️💜tfsd
So many beautiful greetings, each unique and bursting with creativity.
Wow! You are correct Anna these cards are completely amazing. Good Job!
Loved all the cards. I used to think I could not be a Griffinite because use everybodies products! But I have a special love for all things Victorian & bless the day I found Anna Griffin!
So many outstanding cards! I laughed when you mentioned the postage. I whine & plead with my post office every time I send to Fan Mail Friday! “It’s only a card!” I say. I sent something this week with much negotiations. I hope it makes it! Lol
I love Anna!
Love all the cards but most of all the hand crocheted butterfly. What a wonderful combination of art craft! Kudos to the crafter!
Beautiful cards! So glad you had a Happy birthday month log celebration.
There are so many beautiful cards, I couldn’t begin to mention all of the ones that I absolutely fell in love with. It is always such a joy to see all of the talent.
Anna, all of these cards are so beautiful and creative.; such talented crafters. I really appreciate your sharing them with us.
Happy Birthday. Love the angels.
Happy birthday Anna! Have a beautiful, healthy, happy birthday year! 💃🏻🍷🎂
These cards are so very beautiful and creative. Thank you for sharing them and your birthday wishes. What a remarkable community you have!
Anna, I think closet Griffinites are those who collect your products but don’t make a lot of cards and who love you and your products a lot.
As for your kitteh, they feel your heart and are trying to give you comfort.
Love looking at everyone’s work!
Wonderful cards and projects!
All the thoughtfulness and affection going into these works shows how truly blessed you are, Anna. And you in turn spread it around to others. Full circle 😁
Have a good weekend, Everybody!
If you added up all the time fans had used to create all the exquisite birthday cards, It would take up all of June and more. That shows how much you are loved, Anna. There was no end to the creativity used to make them using your fabulous products. I got some good ideas to use when i make cards but none will be as creative as these were. I hope your birthday month has brought you such joy as much as we have while watching your posts.
Everything is just beautiful! Thank you for sharing all of these great cards, they are all so creative and inspiring!!!!!

Hello Anna & Team
Thank you, Anna for sharing all the beautiful cards and heartfelt sentiments for your birthday celebration this month! xoxo Greetings to all the Griffinites who sent in their creations in your honor. Welcome to those who sent their first Fan Mail Friday card-keep them coming! See you soon Monday, August 29th on HSN Facebook Live.
Lovely just lovely
So many beautiful items. The creativity is amazing! Anne’s card is so impressive – it’s like a puzzle within the card – with each turn you find something new!!!
Anna, you always seem to say or do something that really hits home with me. You were talking about stationary vs. stationery. I had an elementary teacher that always gave us “hints” to help us remember when spelling words such as this. Okay – here it is stationery is paper – both stationery and paper have an”er” in them. I’m 63 years old and still remember some of these hints!
Thanks for the “er” hint. I always have to double check to make sure i’m spelling stationery correctly.
Incredible cards and gifts. You are one loved lady Anna.
Such beautiful artwork!
