Fan Mail Friday – Eggs-traordinary Greetings
We are so excited to share the absolutely beautiful things that have come into the office this week. Fridays are our favorite day of the week because we save up the mail you send into our office throughout the week, and then read all about what is happening in your lives and what you are crafting. From thank you cards and Easter projects to an extra fun April Fool’s Day history lesson, today’s Fan Mail Friday has it all!
Grab your coffee and let’s catch up.
Jimmie Lynn made the most gorgeous basket easel card full of gorgeous spring ephemera. Thank you so much!
Mary Beth sent the most fun card all about the Poisson d’Avril and the legendary origin of the April Fish. She included this wonderful card, and even a hilarious, fishy trick to pin on people here in the office.
James and Sharon are enjoying the Sugar Egg Scene Dies that they won from the blog. Sharon is a professional cake decorator, and the icing-like detail in this beautiful card truly shines!
Our friend Valerie is loving the Sugar Egg Scene Dies, and is enjoying making Easter cards this season. We love the great idea she shared of putting a note inside the butterfly from the Just Because Gift Card Dies.
Roxanne wrote to tell us how much she enjoyed being our guest on AGTV, and that she love this community of crafters. Thank you for being our guest!
Anne made the prettiest card for Fan Mail Friday. She loves crafting with our products and learning through our community!
Thank you all for thinking of us each week, and for sending us such wonderful mail into our office. It is such a joy to know you! If you would like to submit something for Fan Mail Friday, please mail it to 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324.
For next week we have several things to bring light to. On Monday our April 19th Product Previews begin and Wednesday, April 5th at 12pm we have our next AGTV show: Flower Power. Make a plan to join us for a crafty, good time! Everyone can join us show (live or replay) on our website.
Bye for now,
It’s good to hear about the AGTV show dates and new previews on the 19th, they are something I look forward to a lot. The fan mail cards were so pretty and I liked hearing about the history of April fool’s day. We learn all kinds of things with Anna. I’m truly grateful for this community, blog and crafting with AG products. Anna, you done good with your life’s work. You could be proud of all you accomplished and all you’ve shared🙂
I finally finished and mailed all 20 of my Easter cards, and now I want to make more! They are all so beautiful! Like potato chips or good chocolate, you just can’t stop!!!
Very beautiful cards. I love them all.
Beautiful cards. I just LOVE seeing everyone’s interpretations of your products and the way they mix and match from year to year.
I enjoyed the April Fool’s Day history lesson.
So much beauty and talent out here in our Griffinite community.
What eggstra special cards! Everyone is so talented and creative.
Loved the cards today. I forgot about April Fish! I will have to stick some fish on my grandkids! I made something for FMF but now I like it so much I will keep it.😄 I hope to send a picture to Craftspiration instead. Thanks to all who do share their creations! FMF is my “favorite time of the week!”

What lovely and wonderful cards! So many talented Griffinites! Thanks Anna.
All the cards are gorgeous! Love them!
Love the family stories. Happy April fools day and Palm Sunday!
All the cards are beautiful! Great job Griffinites! Y’all are so very talented! Someday when i get a little better, I’ll send Anna a card, but you guys have some crazy talent amongst all of you. Thanks for all the inspiration!
Love to all,
Everything was beautiful and I really enjoyed the story behind April Fool’s Day 🙂
As always, FMF makes me smile!! And a big thank you to Anna. A few years ago, I ended up in the hospital on an HSN craft day. I was looking forward to purchasing the Holiday House finishing school box, but I missed it. And of course they sold out. I reached out on the blog for help. A Griffinite suggested I email AG to see if they had any extras. I was fully expecting to pay full price, if they had one. But with the generosity of Anna, and her very kind co-worker Stephanie, I was gifted the Holiday House. I was thrilled, but not at all surprised by their kindness. I have been making Anna’s Christmas cards for family and friends, since you started making the Christmas box. Keep on supplying the world with beauty, and giving us the chance to win new and past items, from your stash. This gives everyone an opportunity to create.😋 ps. Just lost my sweet kitty Jamie (15 years young). I love it when you feature your fur babies on the blog. Makes me smile.
ANNA Thankyou for showing all the Beautiful Cards that came in! I am looking forward to the next AGTV. Show Also the next Preview. All i have is your products. Please keep them coming!
I always look forward to fanmail Friday. I hope to get some card making done this weekend. I finally gave in and bought the purse dies. They should be here today! Happy weekend, crafty people!
Beautiful cards. Love the sugar egg die. Great tip about April fools. Love your blouse Anna and the color. Happy Easter everyone.
Hello Anna & Team
I was glad you received my Sugar Egg Easter card and the Butterfly note holder 🙂
There are so many wonderful Griffinites and I am honored to have my creations featured today. Blessings to you and all your Team
What great ideas…..can’t wait to start mine! 🥰🥰🥰
So glad I purchased the Sugar Egg Dies, as every time I see a card made with them it is so beautiful and each one is so unique. I loved the one made with the Pearls as I remember those Sugar Eggs as a kid. They just seemed to mesmerize me just looking at them. So Beautiful! All the cards were amazing on this Fan Mail Friday.
Wow! Joanne’s card is so pretty. That’s a keeper, for sure! Just lovely. ❤️
All the are awsome. But the April fools fish really s r ands out for me. I have never heard that story
Beautiful projects love them all. Everyone have a great relaxing and safe weekend.
Everything is so beautiful! It amazes me how differently each project looks with the same dies, paper, & embellishments! I am really looking forward to AGTV next week.
Good morning this wet friday morning, Anna and team. Wonderful Easter greetings this friday before Palm Sunday. Happy Easter Sugar Eggs and kind words.
Joanne Sinclair’s card made my jaw drop! Had to emulate this fabulous card for my Easter offerings – but of course could not replicate all of it’s splendor! Love FMF…
Everything is so pretty!!
Loved the history lesson. Anna you bring a lot of happiness into my life.
Eggs, eggs and more eggs
