What a gift God has placed within you and I am glad you share it with all of us! Thank you.

  50. Patty Moore says:

    Anna: what i love most about this Christmas kit is it reminds me of the wonderful sights, sounds, smells and taste of Christmas past when Christmas was filled with joy and hope. I love the borders stickers. This kit bridges the wonderful memories of the past with the present so beautifully. Thank you.

  51. Jane says:

    I love the cards but I am really looking forward to getting the new embossing folders. So much you can do with them!

  52. Kay Brassfield says:

    Congratulations Wanda ! I love all the hints and tips you give us. All three cards are EXQUISITE !! So Classy and the receiver off any of your handmade cards would be just “Over the Moon”.
    Anna, you’ve brought me new friends also.. At a recent retreat I was at the corner table as you the door, and as I laid out the base card (about 4 across and 3 down for 12 cards on my 6 foot table & started layering (Just like you show us on HSN) a woman stopped to admire & ask questions. She was so enthralled I offered to teach her. We spend the afternoon and next day making cards from 2 of my kits! We have done another 2 day retreat together and have one in Atlanta this weekend (10-4 & 5). She is driving 4 hours to come make cards with me.
    I know God brought you into my life. I had a small stroke and have MS. Sitting at a table and working with my hands is the perfect therapy. We both are caregiver we for our Mothers’s for about 18 years together. We create AG cards, address and stamp some to be ready to mail and fellowship while sharing, laughing and sometimes crying together. The gift you give us to be able to send cards to others battling cancer, going thru celebrations and hard times gives me “Something to love, something to do, and something to look forward to…Bless you

  53. Anne says:

    Beautiful! Each week we get a better glimpse of this card kit and we want more and more! Can’t wait fot Oct. 7th. My poor credit card! Thanks Anna!

  54. Peg Palmer says:

    Dear Anna,
    My friend Patti in Montana never waits until Christmas to send my Christmas gift. It’s always card crafting related. Why? You ask…”because I neeeeeeeeeed it”. So there you have it, now you know. I am otherwise very good about my finances but when you are on hsn I must exclaim and explain that surely I neeeeeeeeed it!

  55. Alexis Knighton says:

    My favorites are the solid core papers and the borders. Both are fabulous!! Great job, Anna!! I’m like everyone else–anxious to order and get started!! I’m new to card making and all that I’ve seen so far on your blog are getting my creative juices flowing!! Keep up the fantastic work!!

    Hi Anna,

    You are fantabulous. I absolutely adore your products and designs. Last year I passed on your 3D Christmas borders (no money). I could have cried and when I saw you brought them back this year on HSN, I jumped on them. Just gorgeous!!! I plan to sell cards at my church’s Christmas Bazaar. I can’t wait, I need so much!!!

    Congrats Wanda! Beautiful cards, can hardly wait to get started…maybe there really is a Santa named Anna!! Glad we don’t have to wait long for clue #3…to win the BIG PRIZE would be like winning a big cruise or trip…even better!! 🙂 Might have to get out last years’ xmas card kit the green box out & work on cards while watching the big 24 hour HSN craft day on Otc. 7th. Had mentioned on an earlier post that things came up & didn’t get many cards made last year & sooooo hopefully this fall will be able to share some of my goodies (new & leftovers) with daughters, mother or sister,…don’t live in same locations so have to make special trips. But wanted to share with you & your team just how handy the auto ship card kit, All About Love was. Since I was unable get xmas cards out I sent to few close select family members Valentine cards, they were gorgeous cards. Also I had purchased on clearance the Coca Cola cards in the red carrying box & tweeked a few of them for valentines (really worked out because fancy fancy isn’t for all). Then for valentine gifts for my two daughters I was lucky to get the Coca Cola card kits for them before they were gone. REALLY LOVED THEM!! If you are able to do that again might get another set just to make a collage. Also love the idea a lady commented about making a RED storage box for our xmas embossing folders!! Why stop there?? How about red storage containers to choose in your line of desk items & boxes, etc.??? I’m always looking for red accents in my workroom & would pop against white. Thanks for your creations!

    Congrats to you Wanda,have lots of fun. It’s a great way to have a girly party be it family or friends.
    Lefty Lou, sick kitties aren’t much fun but our best friends are truly worth the vet bills. I hope she’s better. Now,Anna, about this race. Hey gang are we having fun yet? I’ve been having big fun with you since about 2004(?). This is more fun than Mac DADDY.

  120. Shirley Waters says:

    I already started making Christmas cards out of the left over cards from last year. I really need the 2014 Christmos hit

  121. Audrey Glascock says:

  123. Sandra Short says:

  124. Judy Mink says:

    Congratulations to Wanda R.! We will all have so much fun making cards and getting ready for Christmas with Anna’s beautiful things she is sharing with us. Can’t wait for October 7th!

  125. Hobo says:

    I love how things keep getting better and better. Recently I found out that when I send cards to one particular friend that she cuts the fronts off and attaches them to another card and recycles them on to other friends! She said they are too pretty to discard and since she is someone who doesn’t save a lot of things she decided that others could enjoy them too. I guess we should both be flattered!

  126. Marianne P says:

    Wish I had the opportunity to enter my 3 snswer to the 2nd clue bur I had a family reunion that took precedence. The answer was a lei of beads and paper flowers. I tried to enter it today at 1 pm EST but the entry period was over. I’m looking for ward to Annas visit, though.

  127. Connie Hull says:

    Wow…..the excitement of the upcoming event is mounting! Can’t wait to see the new items and start getting that Christmas feeling ;~)

  129. Kay Dell Whitlock says:

    Can’t wait for October 7th. My parents anniversary. Even though they are not still with us it is a day to celebrate the love they shared and this is just one more fun reason to celebrate!!!

  130. Lou Marks(Lefty Lou) says:

    Dear Anna,
    So looking forward to my new Cuttlebug folder collection. Stocked up on sleeves a while back. May actually have enough storage this time. Looking forward to the red box-Chanukah awaits…YAY! Now winning one would be well, the cat’s meow. (sorry, couldn’t help it) Wish I understood that Facebook thing, but this computer rookie just isn’t there yet. There will be so many entrants anyway, well, my luck hasn’t been so hot recently, though my Abbie cat is better! Too bad vets cost so much. I still plan on an October 7 cheer me up day. What’s a few zillion $ of debt when Anna is around? Thank you for all of the creativity and love you send out to us who adore you. Seriously, you make my life so much better. UPS loves you, HSN too. Now about my husband…Love and hugs from Lefty Lou and the fuzzy elves, one in particular…

  131. Marcie Smith says:

    Beautiful Card set!!!! Can’t wait to get it. I just love traditional Christmas cards. Thanks for putting such a gorgeous set together Anna.

  132. Bev Limbach says:

    Christmas is just around the corner for us card makers. This card set is amazing and looks so easy to get great results. I have fun year round making your cards and this Christmas is no different. Bravo, Anna!

  133. Donna Wilson~Doherty says:

    Happy X~mas card making Wanda, what a beautiful kit you just won. I can’t wait to order this myself! Sometimes we fret over the holidays fast approaching but when you get involved in making cards from Anna’s X~mas card kits you can’t help but get in the spirit of things! It brings back the excitement we loose and forget about during the busy season. The goodies you bring to us Anna do more than just make pretty cards…so much more!!

  134. Debbie Allen says:

    Love, love, love this Christmas card kit! I can’t wait 2 be able to get this & all the other beautiful items.

  135. Susan Stogner says:

    Anna, you and your team keep outdoing yourselves. Thanks you for all your hard work and wonderful products. Can’t wait until the show on HSN!!

  136. Diane Fletcher says:

  143. April L says:

    I purchased last year’s holiday card kit and it was a big hit with the troops overseas. I can’t wait to get this year’s kit and send all the cards over again.

  144. Kimberly says:

    I so hope I win! no money to purchase so that will be my only hope.. but regardless, the collection looks absolutely stunning!

  145. Pat G says:

    I’m tempted to get a facebook account to be able to enter the giveaway then cancel the account after I win. Ahhh, a girl can dream… At least I can still get what I want Oct 7th.

  146. HollyG says:

    What a wonderful talent and inspiration you are Miss Anna!!! Absolutely can’t wait for the 7th to be here!!! Those cards you previewed today….gorgeous!!!

    Thank you for sharing and thank you for being YOU!!!

  147. Jeorgette says:

    Sorry…didn’t mean to reply to your post with my comment. Might as well answer your question: I think you can still get the card set, just not the big prize w/o a FB account.

  148. Joy Penegar says:

    Since my name is Joy I only send joy cards for Christmas. But somehow I’m going to try and incoperate that sleigh into this years cards. Keep em coming Anna…

  149. Jeorgette says:

    These are gorgeous! I think if I had this kit, I’d actually get some cards out to people (not a great card sender I’m afraid).
