Fan Mail Friday – Easter Wishes
Happy Friday to you! We have been busy revamping our studio, and getting ready for our HSN show, Crafting with Adam and Anna Griffin coming up Monday night at 9pm. We’re working on getting the studio just right; hence no video today. But, that doesn’t mean that we don’t have fan mail to share with you! We have photographed all of this week’s mail for your viewing pleasure!
Sandy sent in this beautiful, inlay Easter card and the sweetest letter. She wrote that she found us last November, and that she has had the best time learning new techniques, making cards and connecting with our community. We are thrilled to hear from you, Sandy!
Here is the gorgeous inside of Sandy’s card!
We are sending a big hug back to you, Adina! Thank you for being our friend, and for this lovely card!
Our friend Agnes wrote inside this pretty card, “No winter lasts forever, no spring skips its turn.” Hal Barland
We hope you all are thoroughly enjoying your spring like we are.
Here is the second card Agnes sent! So pretty! Happy Easter to you!
Anna from Savannah wants us all to have a blessed Easter! The inside of your card is just as beautiful as the outside.
Joyce said, “It takes thoughtfulness and caring to be the kind of person you are. That’s why you’re wished so much happiness at Easter and through the rest of the year! Happy Easter, Happy Spring!”
Kris has been a fan since our Plaid days, and attended her first event with Create 7. Since then, she has joined the Michig-Annas, crafting ribbon bound journals and having a wonderful time crafting.
Victoria is Missouri had lots of fun on Craft Day! She sent us this fun card and a St. Patrick’s Day poem that read:
“These things, I warmly wish for you- Someone to love, some work to do, A bit o’ sun, a bit o’ cheer. And a guardian angel always near.”
You are so welcome for the shimmer paper, Laurie! We love this Fantastic Flips card!
Michele knows how to light up our day! Isn’t her Easter card just beautiful?
Shirley loves our Le Coin Criss Cross Square Dies. She sent us this pretty pink card!
Teresa sent in her second Fan Mail Friday card. She won the Metallic Cardstock and is having fun diecutting and embossing it.
Carole was so sweet to send us one of her family heirlooms. This stunning, embroidered shawl belonged to her great-grandmother, grandmother, her mother and then her. We’re speechless. Thank you so much for such an important gift! The picture shows her great-grandmother, great aunt and grandmother. They were all in Vaudeville as a musical act of mandolins and trumpets!
Beth is wishing all of us a wonderful Easter Season. Beth, you are such an amazing crafter! These gorgeous 3D projects are so impressive and inspiring!
We are in awe of this eggscellent carriage full of bunnies, flowers and brightly colored Easter eggs!
This cute hat is full of surprises!
Too cute, Beth!
Thank you all for sending such thoughtful, caring and beautiful cards, letters, paper projects and more. We love getting to connect with you each week! If you would like to submit something for Fan Mail Friday, you can mail it to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324 Attn: Fan Mail Friday.
Congratulations to everyone who has their ticket to CropAt Home 2. I wish I could be their with you but the timing is impossible for me this year due to a change in a scheduled surgery of a family member, I am the care giver. I do look forward to hearing about everyone’s fun & plan to be their with you next year. I love Create & I am sure I would love this just as much! The papers, dies & embellishments are beautiful!
FANTABULOUS Fan Mail Friday!!👏🏽🎉👏🏽🎉 Awesome inspiration!!🥰🙋🏻♀️💜tfs
Happy Easter everyone! These cards are beautiful!
I loved all the cards sent. They show how creative your fans are.
Fantastic and beautiful Easter card colors. Good job!
Very nice and beautiful everyone. Great job in creating your projects loved all.
I love all the designs and the colors of the papers are beautiful!! ! The hat was the most innovative!!
Beautiful cards! 🐣🐥
Every cared is beautiful but the hat full of surprises is my favorite! What a cute idea!
The carriage full of bunnies knocks me out! What creative Anna fans you all are.
Anna’s crafters have such amazing talent! Beth, I am in awe of your projects and, if I am honest, just a tad jealous, lol. I aspire to achieve your creativity!
Thank you for sharing these beauties.
The carriage rabbits was great and so are all the cards..The inlay on the Easter eggs is alot of work.. Anna and her team chose such a great selection of cards as always to share on her Fan Mail Friday as they on all the Blogs..
Oh Anna, what a beautiful treasure Carole gave you. I think it should be one of the next set of papers and title it “Carole.” I think it would make a truly wonderful craft box also. Maybe it could be called “Family Heirlooms.” Just a thought. We have a shawl that has been passed along through our family. I’m sure there are others who have some that would be willing to send a picture to you. Could be a contest to have you and your staff pic the set of “Carole” papers for the set. I think that would be fun. A second set could be tea cups from families and the emblishments could be the flowers that match each cup. Another kit could be “In your Easter Bonnet” based on the best “Griffinite’s heirlooms.” I think this would be fun and a new branch of creativity to add to your already wonderful collection.
Those are great ideas, I totally hope Anna takes up your wonderful suggestions!
I am so proud my card was displayed on Anna’s site!
I just love all these beautiful cards. Some people have such great designs.
Happy Days to all!
Beautiful cards for a beautiful lady. We missed seeing you for FMF but are looking forward to you and Adam Monday night.
The shawl is a treasure. I am a fan of all things Victorian…they had such an appreciation for nature,needlework, art & beauty. Everything today was soooo inspirational. I am thankful that Anna still posted FMF despite being so busy. I know I look forward to it every week!
I am so impressed with all these cards and gifts, you deserve all these beautiful cards and gift showered on you Anna.
All of you have made charming charming cards as always Anna has chosen such a verity to show us.. The inlayed eggs are especially wonderful! Inlaying takes so much more time but the time well spent!!
All of these cards are beautiful….but the Hat is so so cute..
What clever ideas! It doesn’t seem possible Easter is just around the corner!
I think the carriage of bunnies is so great. What a great idea for the carriage die. Sure give me an idea . I am new to card crafting and never would have been able to think of using the carriage for this great Easter card.
Lovey cards everyone wishing all of you a BLESSED HOLIDAY! Don’t eat too much candy.

This is lovely seeing all the cards close up. I am always stunned by what Beth creates. Today, my heart just melted over the photograph Carole sent along with her card, such beautiful and creative women. Thanks, Carole, for sharing your family history with all of us 🙂 Anna, I cannot wait to see what your studio looks like now!
I have gotten so lazy these days in making comments. I am glad I belong to Finishing School so that I can see everyone’s spectacular creations. I also appreciate you continuing the BLOGs because I can refer to them as well. I am forever a fan and will support your wares over food at this point if the decision comes to that. I can afford the weight loss too. Hugs, Anna!

So many beautiful cards. Thank you. Happy Spring!! Back in Minnesota it was not unusual to have a bit of snow this time of year.
Love the Spring cards! We actually had sleet and some snow flurries this morning, so seeing all of the colorful cards this morning makes my day.
Wonderful cards and projects, along with interesting stories!
Very nice cards ladies
