Fan Mail Friday- Thankful Me, Grateful for You
Fan Mail Friday is our favorite time of the week for so many reasons! It’s a special time that we get to connect and hold your incredible cards, letters and projects in our hands! This week we heard from some of our favorite people from all over, and we received patriotic cards, birthday cards and so much more. There are lots to show you!
Come take a look!
Joanna sent this sweet card along with a comfy pair of flip flops and well wishes. You are too kind, Joanna! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness; we hope you get back to 100% very soon!
Our friend Penny wrote to thank us for the Tunnel Card Finishing School Craft Box that she won during Win It Wednesday. You are very welcome Penny, and thank you for playing along.
We’re birthday twins, Barbara! Thank you for the beautiful birthday wishes, and we are sending you the same. We will be thinking of you come August 5th!
We received the prettiest easel card from Richard this week. From dimensional flowers to peacock feathers, this card has it all! It’s always good to hear from you, friend!
Barbara certainly knows how to make a gorgeous card! Take a look at this amazing trio made with the Lace Edge Dies.
We love a history lesson, and Pat came through with her card and letter about the Freedom Train. We always love learning and seeing your interpretations of cards!
It’s so good to hear from Barbara (Babs) in Mississippi. You are quite the collage expert, and we are in awe of these gorgeous cards, pretty tag and cute corgi!
Maggie sent us a gorgeous floral card, explosion box and dainty earrings. You are so sweet Ms. Maggie!
Here is a look at the celebratory cake inside her explosion box! So fun!
Beautiful work, all! If you would like to send us a gorgeous card, project or letter, mail it to us at 99 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta, GA 30324. We would love to hear from you and show everyone what you have created! There’s more crafting where that came from; if you are a Finishing School member, then be sure and join us at 12pm today for our July Finishing School live. We are taking a deep dive into the spectacular Kirigami Dies!
Everything is so pretty, thank you for sharing these wonderful creations with us!
Hello Anna! I always enjoy FMF. I especially love Pat’s Freedom Train. What an artistic way to utilize the star burst as fireworks and the meticulous cutting to add as smoke! I am planning to create my first explosion box soon. I hope mine turns out as beautiful as Maggie’s.
Thank you for sharing, everyone!! 😊
Thank you everyone for sharing your creative card designs. Love the celebratory cake in the explosion box that we got for Create 7. Excited for Create 8.
Anna, you have the best followers. Maybe it’s because YOU are so kind and bring such inovating ideas. Speaking of which, I haven’t lately seen any of your premade pages and scrapbooks and wonder if you still make such a lovely product. I think of my DIL who has so many pictures to scrap but just doesn’t know where to start nor have all the tools most of us have. I’d love her to see some of your ideas. Thanks for Fan Mail Friday. I so enjoy seeing what folks come up with. AMAZING.
What a beautiful bunch of cards! Love FMF and getting to my fellow crafters. Thank you for sharing, Anna!
Always so fun to watch FMF and all the projects and cards people send in. Richard’s cards are always so unique to see!! I have to get one in the mail as I haven’t sent for a long time. Was so fun watching and shopping on the 12th. Got my Snow People the other day and they are so adorable. Can’t wait to get my Holiday Celebration card kit!! Thanks Anna and your team for making us all look good!!
Great to see Richard’s card…stupendous as always. I am curious what kind of paper he used for those flowers? Also welcome to Rich in UK! FMF is the best! Love to all!
Please bring us a 12”x12” pack of champagne gold cardstock and a 12”x12” pack of ice blue cardstock. Thank you, Anna.
Anna you look great in the blue/white stripe dress!
The colors of all those beautiful cards are beautiful. Tfs. But that 4th of July train was spectacular.
Thank you Anna for great products. We went crazy of the 12th but well worth it. I was very fortunate to be a lucky winner recently and won the tunnel card set. Love it. Thank you again.
These pieces are wonderful! Such talent! I just signed up for the next event! Hooray! Thank you Anna for sharing your beautiful self with us.
Such beautiful creations. Everyone is just so talented.
Anna, you should NOT feel guilty about not sending us Thank You cards. You develop such GREAT products for us to use. That is Thank You enough for me. And I am sure others agree.
So excited for Create 8. It’s gonna be GREAT!!
Thank you for sharing such lovely cards,explosion box and gift box! Spectacular!
Everything is gorgeous by I especially like the train and the box with the card. The box and card are an elegant way to send a card. Thanks for showing great ideas.
So many beautiful creative cards. I enjoy hearing all the stories from all over the world.
Anna Griffin lovely Christmas and birthday craft (new) and you are my favourite craft
Love the creativity!
These creations show that “more is more” really takes the cake. This old timer loves how others use your products to the extreme. Soooo beautiful. I have not mastered that yet but keep trying. Maybe I can achieve that soon.
Wonderfully beautiful makes! Loved the train history lesson. I got 3 celebration boxes on HSN. I just drooled over them when I saw them. My crazy wonderful husband said go for it. Also got the China cabinet kit and the miniature nativity dies. They are all on the way.
Would love to see the train and ferris wheel in a kit all cut out and ready to go, please.
Beautiful cards and projects! I would so love to know how Richard made those gorgeous flowers! Richard?…
All the cards are beautiful. The Freedom train was great. But me favorite was the birthday explosion box. I wish I was that talented. Beautiful work thanks to Anna’s wonderful creations.
Hi Anna, Thank you so very much for featuring my Freedom train today! I found the history of the trains interesting so I am happy you enjoyed the history as well. I love FMF and everyone made some fabulous projects and cards for todays showing!! Love your dress too, Anna!! Happy crafting everyone!!
Thank you for including us in your fan mail Friday, it is such an honor. You had it right when you said I made an interpretation of a finishing school class, in all 75 years of my life I have never exactly copied a recipe or art project without putting my own spin on it. And I think that is why I so love your products and classes, it allows an individual to truly make their projects their own by going outside the “BOX”.
Oh! How I wish that I had that kirigami die. I just love seeing all of the cards made with it. I do have the train die and it is helpful to see how others use it. Thanks for Fan Mail Friday.
Again just beautiful Friday full of talented people.
How beautiful all the creations are…Such talent so much warmth comes thru with each one you share with us. Thank you and pray you will always be there to inspire.
The cards are all so beautiful. I love the Freedom Train and the explosion box. Great ideas and enjoy seeing this every Friday.
I love the Freedom train and the history behind it. A wonderful card.
Hello Anna & Team
Happy Fan Mail Friday to you and all the Griffinites. It is nice to see what everyone is making, and your friend Richard is once again sharing his beautiful creations. The creativity on this blog is always off the charts! I just received my text about the Create 8 Event oh my goodness!
