Fan Mail Friday – Just Because
Happy Friday to you! This is the first Fan Mail Friday of the summer, and we are kicking off the season in a beautiful way. We have thank you cards, just because cards and even the start to 4th of July cards. We look forward to getting the mail each week, and sharing what’s happening in the lives of Griffinites all over the country. As a reminder, if you are a Finishing School member, our June Finishing School Live is happening today at 12pm EST (rescheduled from last week).
Now, grab your cup of coffee and let’s see what has come into the office this week!
We got to hear from our friend Irene who joined us as a guest during Crop at Home 2. She sent this pretty card and lots of inspirational bookmarks for us to share with all the staff! Thank you, Irene.
Look at the gorgeous card Adina sent in this week. She wrote to talk about her days as a nurse and reminisced about being 17.
We received this pretty purple card from Margie to thank us for the stationery that she won from Win It Wednesday. It’s good to hear from you, Margie!
A just because card is just what we needed today! Lynn made this beautiful card with an even more wonderful sentiment inside. She is thankful for a loving and supportive community that has changed her life for the better and given her unexpected friends. You are so welcome, Lynn!
Mary Beth is enjoying watching YouTube videos on DIY and renovating chateaus in France! Those shows are right up our alley too Mary Beth! If you are in Indiana, and want to join with fellow crafters, join Mary Beth’s Indi- Annas!
As promised, here is the sentiment inside Mary Beth’s card.
Isn’t Ruth Charles’s adorable card perfect for the upcoming 4th of July festivities? From the seersucker to the red, white and blue details, we love this card!
We love this amazing Gucci-inspired closet from Tasha! From the floral blazer to the gorgeous interior and Gucci cat head sweater, we love it ALL. This is expertly crafted Tasha, and P.S. your penmanship is lovely!
Here is the inside of Tasha’s card.
Lastly, here is the inside of the closet.
Fan Mail Friday just makes you feel good! Next Friday is July 1st, so be sure to send us cards and projects that show off the first time you tried a technique, product, or if you have never sent us a card, let it be the first one! You can mail your paper projects to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 3o324 Attn: Fan Mail Friday. We can’t wait to hear from you!

What a wowser of a preview this is and perhaps the best, best products you have ever presented at one time. I want all of the items literally. They are gorgeous!

Such beautiful ideas, with beautiful Anna Griffin products. Love all of these.
The closet is lovely!
What wonderful imagination you all have!!
Another wonderful FMF. Everything is so impressive. But the Gucci closest wit the Scaredy Cat sweater made me chuckle. And even Georgie and Duke in the closet. I too love personalizing my cards to the recipient.
Mary Beth’s poem sounds like an Irish Blessing.
Just incredible, I am so inspired by all of these beautiful creations. The Gucci card is amazing.
These cards are full of inspiration, hope and positivity.
Great show of talent.
Mary Beth, loved your “My Wish For You”. Just wonderful.
Thank you all, have a safe and happy weekend.
Beautiful cards. Anna, you will have to show us a pic of your 65 Convertible Mustang. They are so collectible. That is so wonderful that you still have it! I love old cars.
Dear Anna – Thank you again for all of your wonderful products and inspiration! Today, most especially I thank you for sharing Mary Beth’s sentiment! Today is a very troubling day for me and her words of warm inspiration have lifted my spirit. Bless you both!

Beautiful cards & sentiments
Tasha I just love your card big time.
Thanks everyone for the beautiful cards, but have to say right now was just the right time for Mary Beth to share her poem. I have a cousin (more like a sister to me) who will be celebrating her 83rd birthday (& I’m sorry to say it most likely will be her last) on 7/11 & if you don’t mind I would love to share that in her card.
Thanks to all for sharing your cards & kitties too.
WOW everyone what beautiful cards. Thank you for the great ideas. Adina I have everything you used to make your fabulous butterfly friendship card, I’m going to make one tomorrow. Definitely a crafting weekend for me its 100 degrees here in southern California.
I just can’t. decide which I LOVE the Most!!!! So many creative individuals! Love all things Anna!
I am so amazed at every project you show in FMF. The colors, the techniques, and the finished project. You also did some projects today in finishing school that were breathtaking. I continue to love working with your products both dies and paper and embellishments.
Wonderful cards. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Anna & Team
Happy Fan Mail Friday to everyone at Anna Griffin, Inc. Greetings to all the Griffinites!
Another stunning offering of creativity-thank you for sharing. Mary Beth, I especially loved the sentiment inside your card.
Anna, you brought tears to my eyes today. I too was driving a Mustang when I was 17. It was a 1966 hardtop 3 speed that daddy fixed up for me . I wish with all my heart that I still had that car and that my daddy was still with me. I miss him so much.
Loved the poem and need to send it forward. Also the Gucci card is wonderfully well
designed. Let’s hope the company makes an offer for you design to design for them.
p.s son in law loved his train card.
Simply Beautiful, nothing else to say! Thanks for sharing.

WOW! Margie/s card really “spoke” to me! I will be trying to re-create it in my own craft room soon!
If there were prizes to be given it would be so difficult to choose but Tasha’s card is beyond incredible! Wow! Love it!💖💖💖
Love the new ideas! Poetry seems to imbue the spirit of the Griffinites.
There is no limit to the creativity displayed every Fan Mail Friday. Anna Griffin fans, like her, are overflowing with beautiful ways to utilize all the wonderful AG paper crafting materials. Each week so many different ideas, a constant stream of really unique and special cards.
Thank you for sharing Mary’s Beth quote, sweet & beautiful. All the inspiring cards were a wonderful array of beauty.
Anna, This FMF a WOW this week! Every one is spectacular! So gifted! Thank you so much for sharing!
My sister needs the closet card! Love all of these projects! Very talented people.
I have 10 plus males to make cards for. I am so glad that Tasha made the floral suit card! I wouldn’t have thought to dress up the vintage suits in such a whimsical way. My six grandsons will appreciate the unique designs as will others who receive them! Thanks Tasha!
I really enjoy “Fan Mail Friday”, so many lovely projects to inspire our creativity. Thank you for sharing and for so many fantastic products.
Idaho Spuds! Oh My. Hadn’t seen those in years. Oh the nostalgia. Your fans are the most amazing Anna and their never ending creativeness shows up from your “picty” dust. Guess I’ll have to be a ColoradoANNA!
All are wonderful but kudos to Ruth Charles’ 4 th of July card.
That seersucker just slays me. ❤️

I always enjoy fan mail Friday so much. Seeing the beautiful cards and gifts you receive and learning bits and bobs about you and other Griffinites is pleasant way to spend my morning tea time on Fridays.
I have to say over the past few years your blog as become a real source of inspiration. The content has truly continued to become more creative and interactive and is truly beautiful in the making
You are still all kinds of cute!
I enjoy making cards for you and sending them for FMF. It’s not often that you get to see the recipient of your cards reaction to it. It is so cool to see.
I enjoy seeing what others have made for you, just as much.
It is such a good way to get to know your fellow crafter’s on a little deeper level.
Thank you for sharing your mail!
See you soon in FSL!
Wonderful FMF! Such gorgeous projects!
Happy Fri-Yay, everyone! Such wonderful creativity this week. I especially love Ruth’s celebration card – it has provided me with much needed inspiration.
I hope everyone enjoys an amazing weekend and is able to stay cool amid the soaring temps across the states!
Great inspiration this week – love the Gucci Wardrobe!
Clever Creativity! Are there any ” Kentucky-Anna’s” out there? I live outside of Louisville and a huge fan of Anna’s products. Would love to know if there are any fans in my area besides me and a couple of my friends.
