Fan Mail Friday – Happy 4th of July!
Welcome to the first Friday in July! We hope that you have had an excellent week, and that you are excited to see what has come into the office this week. From thank yous to 4th of July cards, we have lots of pretty things for you to ooh and ahh over today!
Come take a look!
We want to wish Kris a very Happy 78th Birthday! She sent 2 beautiful cards for Fan Mail Friday, and we need to get a belated birthday card in the mail! We will share the quote that Kris added to one of her cards.
“If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.” Fred Rogers
Karen enjoyed being our guest during CAH2, and the scrapbook page that we made for her during the event. Karen included photos of a room in Blair castle that was filled with China. So beautiful!
Leigh Jean decided to send a birthday card early this year! She loves the Kirigami Dies, and paired them with gorgeous antique cards in a beautiful way.
Look at the pretty rose underneath!
Vickey writes that it’s already hot as a firecracker in Tampa! We’re putting the hot in Hotlanta here too!
Terance and John gave us a list of what the 4th of July means to them! From Backyard BBQ to Fireworks and Parades to Red, White and Blue, everything rings a bell to us too!
Our friend Robin wishes us a fabulous 4th of July! This card is so patriotic and summery. Hope you and yours have a fantastic holiday weekend!
How amazing is this card from Toni celebrating Juneteenth? Toni enjoys Fan Mail Friday, seeing others’ creations and hear what’s happening in their lives.
Take a look at the gorgeous invitation from Toni and the Ohio Griffinites! My goodness, it sounds like such a wonderful time!
Marie sent in this goregeous, foiled card to celebrate the 4th! She also included a great quote that we would like to share.
“I believe in America. We have great dreams, and because we have the opportunity to make those dreams come true.” Wendall L Wilkie
Jimmie Lynn informed us that it will be the 200 year anniversary of the “Twas the Night Before Christmas” poem. To celebrate, Jimmie Lynn made a scrapbooking display page. She is excited to begin holiday crafting!
Gorgeous page, Jimmie Lynn!
Thank you all for a fantastic Fan Mail Friday! We love hearing from you each week to learn about what’s going on in your lives and finding out what you are making. If you would like to send something 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 friends old, friends new and YOU!
I love all the 4th of July cards.
Great idea for fireworks with the fans and the decoration on the windows in the house. Beautiful work. Thank you.
Happy Birthday Kris. May you have many, many more sweetheart.
Happy Birthday Kris!!! I too just had a birthday, but was down with the Covid Virus. Worst Birthday, I ever had and never want to have another one like that one. All the holiday cards were amazing and so delightful.
All of these cards are so beautiful. I want to wish Kris a Happy Birthday!
WOW FACTOR CARDS!!! The 4th of July retro-yes
I would love to win the Woodland Animals or the Fancy Edged Dies. Happy Fourth of July!
Happy 4th of July all. I am in awe of all the beautiful cards everyone made. Keep sharing. Thank you!
The quote by Fred Rogers brought tears to my eyes.
So much love!
Love all these cards!!
I really like the bird
Wonderful talent and creativity from everyone. Love Fan Mail Friday always gives me incentive to get in my craft room 💕
Wow. So many talented people. If only I could do the same. Enjoy looking at all and love it all.
Such inspiring pieces of paper art. I love all of these
Just watching this late, today 7/3.
Happy belated Birthday Kris!😊☀️🎉🎂🎈🎊🌹
The cards are lovely and offer so much inspiration. I have been stalking HSN and was rewarded today seeing the Ferris Wheel and Hearth are up, so I gave myself a present for the birthday of our country. Happy 4th to everyone.
So many beautiful things but I love the snow globe, Christmas page and the Independence Day themes.
I love how you have built a loving, supportive community that reaches past the craft. Thank you!
Everything is beautifully done!! Love the 4th of July and Christmas
I love all of these

Everyone’s creations are beautiful and so creative! Lots of inspiration. I’d love to win the Christmas cardstock, especially love the brick! Happy independence day weekend! As an Army veteran married to a retired veteran who served 22 years, this is a special day!
Happy Birthday, Chris! Woo-hoo! Oh, those cards and that SCRAPBOOK page! SO beautiful!
OOP. Spelled your name wrong, I apologize! Kris, I hope your BIG DAY is a JOY!
Happy Birthday, Kris!
Love the cards, especially the Gazabo and the Christmas house scene! I do love the new Woodland Impressions die set! It is my favorite because my Mom absolutely loved cardinals, and it makes me think of her.
Lovely as always the cards never disappoint. Kris wishing you a BLESSED 78th BIRTHDAY 🎂 🍰💐
Happy 4th of July everyone 💥😎🇺🇸
Such beautiful cards and Scrapbooking! I really love the red, white and blue! Happy Birthday Kris! I hope you have the best day ever!💕🎉🎂🎈💐
Love that scrapbook page. What a great idea!!
Such beautiful holiday cards, make you want to start on Christmas cards now.😊
The cards and scrapbook page are all beautiful! Such talent. And Kris, hope you have a Very Happy Birthday@
I am just now seeing the fan mail, but wish Chris a very happy birthday!
Happy Birthday Kris and happy 4th everyone! Beautiful work.
I have been trying so hard to find your Fern Cut and Emboss Dies. Unfortunately there was a mix up with my password and I missed out on your sale. I looked every day to see if they were back but to no avail. I even went on eBay when I saw one for sale there. I watched it for a very long time and bid $62.00 US and was prepared to go higher but my fingers didn’t work quickly enough In Canadian that is a lot for this item. It would have been worth every penny. I was outbid by $1.00. I am so disappointed. I am new to Anna Griffin and feel that this is a staple for every collection. Please bring it back. I will be watching very carefully on all of your sales pages. This is my favourite due.
Thanks for considering my request.
Happy Birthday, Kris! May your special day be filled with lots of love and happiness! ❤️
I would like to wish Kris a happy birthday! Here’s to many more years of creativity, happiness and love. I sang Happy Birthday to you while Anna read your card!
Happy Bday Kris! Join the “Friends who Love Anna Griffin “& you’ll get lots of cards!
I love the Gazebo 4th of July card!
Happy Independence Day
PS The play list is great!
happy 4th y’all
Wow such beautiful creations. Everyone have a great 4th of July weekend.
The 4th of July cards are beautiful. But I think the Christmas in July cards are invigorating. They mark the beginning of my Christmas Card making. Aloha
I adore everyone’s work and how wonderful it is that you all send in your cards. One day I will get the nerve! Happy belated BD to Kris!
Happy Birthday Kris!
Beautiful cards today and a big happy birthday to Kris.
Many good wishes to Chris on her birthday!!
I watch Fan Mail Friday each week but never get a chance to comment so today I was so happy I had a minute to say how lovely everyone’s cards were and Happy Birthday to Kris who is 78 years young! One day I will get up the nerve to send in a card! Happy 4th of July to everyone!

To quote Anna, this buttercup had to buckle up in the overwhelming birthday greetings I received. Thank you all for your kind generosity and warm wishes. I giggled and laughed reading these through happy tears. I can say I have been initiated into a loving family of Anna Griffinites.
Karen your card is a beautiful combination of color and pattern. Leigh Jean your Kirigami card fascinates me hope to buy and try. Robin and Marie I’m inspired by the patriotic 4th of July cards. Lots of early July birthdays to send. Great quote, let’s all “have great dreams.” Jimmie Lynn decked the halls. “Happy Craftmas to all and to all a good night!”
You deserve all 78 birthday wishes from not only me but everyone as well. 🙂
