Fan Mail Friday – Bountiful Birthday
Birthday month is officially all month long! We want to start by thanking you for making our birthday so special! This tableful of cards, letters, photos and more. If you don’t see the card that you sent, never fear, we have it! We still have more of your kind, thoughtful and sweet birthday mail to share next week.
There is so much to show you, come take a look!
The beautiful card that Beth made brought such a big smile to our face. Everything is perfect on this gorgeous work of art!
Mary wished us more than we can hold with this pretty, pink Parisian themed easel card.
Happiness and many blessings are what Stacey sent along with her lovely card. So pretty!
This birthday hello was sent by our friend Audrey. You must know just how much we love pink!
Lynn wrote to tell us that her first car was a 1968 metallic blue Mustang. How fun! We ARE something!
Sloan wished us a year filled with joy, love and adventures along with this wonderful, purple card.
Our friend Marie said, “Don’t count the candles, but the light they give. Don’t count the years, but the light they give.”
Thank you so much for the amazing, birthday wishes Evie!
Marcia stepped out of her comfort zone, and boy did it pay off! The card she created is stunning! Thank you so much!
Love, laughter and happiness are what Lu sent along with her fabulous card.
Your card truly shines, Eva! Thank you for the birthday love!
What a special card from sweet Mary Ann! It’s always wonderful to hear from one of the OGs (original Griffinites). Mary Ann, know that we are thinking of you always!
Here is a look at Sue’s incredible scrapbook. It will be treasured forever!

Happy Birthday! Gorgeous cards!
Very pretty cards and color combos!
Oh, Anna, so many gorgeous birthday cards, you are truly loved and appreciated by all your friends and fans. I’m certain they warm your heart as much as you warm ours. You are an amazing person, I pray you have a blessed birthday and blessed year. 🥰❣
As usual fan mail Friday was gorgeous everything was gorgeous
Loving your month long celebration and so inspired by all of the gorgeous creations sent in for FMF! 😁
Everything is so beautiful. The items Anna shared today must have taken a lot of planning and time to complete, all definitely worthy of keeping and displaying on a shelf or table top in designers’ own homes. Yet, they think so highly of Anna they sent their treasures to her for her birthday! So very thoughtful.
Beautiful celebration for YOU! Happiest of birthdays to you!
Wishing you a Happy Birthday, Anna! So many beautiful birthday cards from so many talented card makers!
I love how so many people used the same Eiffel Tower dies in different ways. It shows its versatility in creating so many different cards
Thanks for sharing, it must warn your heart to see the beautiful cards that you helped people to create. I am truly grateful.
Wow! So much love on that table. I feel like I have been on a tour of Pennsylvania. Thanks for sharing & it’s never boring!
Beautiful! Love all the Paris.
Happy Birthday Ms. Anna. Wow all of the projects are amazing and so beautiful.
Happy Birthday Anna! When will the next craft day be? I was in the hospital having surgery this past week and I missed out on the August event 😢
Beautiful Birthday Wishes for a Beautiful Lady.
You certainly deserve the BEST Birthday month.
Love seeing what everyone sends you.
Love looking at all the mail. I feel like I’m spying or something. WOW. Anna Griffin, you are that ONE who has inspired so many of us. Your passion is perfection. I remember that from seeing you on Carol Duvall and I couldn’t get enough of seeing you then. Thanks for the lookie lou at Fan Mail Friday. and for all the talented folks who took the time to engineer those beautiful projects and those that put them together and mailed them to you. We live in a wonderful time don’t we? Especially grateful that someone like me who lives in a small town can see what’s going on in the world surrounding us. THANKS

Happy Fri-Yay!! Great displays of artistic creativity this week – job well done! Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed weekend. 😃
Pa. Griffinites, Would love to become part of your group as I am all alone on making cards. Live in Morgantown, Pa which in Berks County & very beginning of Lancaster County. Would so appreciate if someone from Pa. (or anywhere) would friend me on this site as this is about all I do every day . Going to start selling them & can’t wait !
Thanks so, so much to all of you for sharing in Fanmail Friday.
So very talented people.
What a super fab fan mail Friday, can’t wait till next week. and we can see more unbelievable creations, sent with so much love. Thank you for featuring our card and photos too…. lots of love…
Incredible works of beauty and appreciation. Pennsylvania shining bright in todays blog. I am blessed with in-laws in Bethlehem, with its Moravian traditions and a noble university. Our two lovely nieces were married there. They are now raising a half dozen kids between them both. Mighty Pittsburgh anchors the northwest, and Philly is a joy to visit. I enjoyed time in Lancaster County years ago. I have yet to visit Happy Valley, the home of College Station’s Penn State or the University of Pennsylvania as well. On the Bucket List. Your birthday, Anna, is such a joy to witness. Thank you for sharing all of the best wishes.
Happy birthday month Anna! You are just the best and so deserving of all the well wishes and amazing creativity out there! You are loved and cherished! Hugs
Wow what a Fan Mail Friday! I’m partial to the Pennsylvania Griffinites creations only because I am also from PA, born and raised near where the first oil well was drilled. But I love everyone’s cards etc. they are just wonderful! Can’t wait to see what next week brings!
God Bless all of you!
Wow my card still not showing 😞sorry Anna
WOW! Griffinites are a talented group of people and Anna makes it so easy and always inspires us.
Such a JOY!! So much thought and caring went into creating each and every card with considerate notes tucked inside expressing LOVE for our precious Anna.
Happy Birthday Anna, wishing you a wonderful celebration and an exciting year ahead.
WOW! So many beautiful creations! This shows the beautiful side of this crazy world! Thanks for sharing all of the wonderful things people have sent you. It’s full of inspiration and, I’m going to try to make that one!
I have never seen so many beautiful creations. It blows me away that all the cards you received this month for your birthday there’s not one that’s the same. Not even close to the same. That shows how unique your products are. Thanks for sharing. I’ve never sent you a card but I think I will soon.
Happy birthday You are a very special lady. I hope to meet you someday. I’ve used your papers from the very beginning. Thanks. Bonnie.
Happy Birthday Anna and thank you a million times over for creating a community of craft enthusiasts, who just needed someone with expert skills and insights to guide us all in exploring our creativity. Creating and sustaining a community of crafters during the Pandemic, allow so many of us who were forced to self quarantine, to focus our fears, anxieties and restlessness onto being g of service to others, through cardmaking…thank you for keeping me hopeful, joyful and entertained during such a frightening and isolating time.
You are so loved, Anna, which shows by the huge amount of birthday cards you are receiving from all your many followers. The Scherenschnitte patterns are hand cut, not die cut, and originated from Switzerland and Germany in the 16th century and came to the USA in the 18th century landing in Pennsylvania with the Pennsylvania Dutch. How impressive were all the different techniques used on today’s cards. I loved them all.
I made two sympathy cards and sent t them to my friends. I got so many compliments on them. They said they were amazing and beautiful. They just loved your products that made them so beautiful. I just wanted you to know. I enjoyed making them. Thank you so much. Thank you so much!! Sue
Dear Anna I was watching your video and you said it was a difficult birthday for you. I am so very sorry for what you are going through. Praying for you for peace, and strength.
Blessings on your birthday. May you have wonderful happy days ahead.
All the cards are extremely creative. I am Blessed to be part of. AG.
So much talent among the Griffinite community. I am so blessed that I found you.
Thank you for letting us share your birthday celebration with you! It’s always a wonderful gathering wherever Anna is! Wishing you a Happy, Happy Birthday and sending well wishes for a hundred more!
All of these are so beautiful!

What a special Fan Mail Friday. There are so many beautiful cards and other paper crafting creations. Thank you so much for sharing. I don’t remember if I sent condolences for the loss of your father. I am so sorry and I pray that God will give you peace during this time of sadness. I know that I wished you a happy birthday, but once again, hope your birthday was the best ever.
