  1. Becky Jo Cannon says:

    Late reply here! I love Fan mail Friday, sharing. I love the tutorials & window ledge kits, dies & the examples you share! I loved reading these comments, and all those who won congratulations! And to the person who almost fell off her chair! This is truly a fun place to be! Love it Anna! Can’t wait to #celebr8annagriffin January 10th!

  2. Stacey M. says:

    The flourish dies are so amazing, just what I’ve needed. I’ve been cutting up the ones in the kits to make them last, now I won’t have to be so stingy! Love the card kit, too!
    Thanks for keeping us busy.

  3. Anna Griffin says:

    Gwen, we’re so glad you won! We sent an email to you about your prize. Have a very, merry Christmas!

  4. Ruth Ann Martin says:

    I made a lot of Christmas cards from your kits and embellishments this year and they were really pretty. Is it possible to make a smaller Christmas card Kit that could be mailed for the regular 49 cents. Most of my cards from the kits had to be hand stamped which of course costs more to mail – about 15 cents each.

  5. Frankie Rolfe says:

    What a fabulous collection from some very festive people. Happy Holidays to all.
    Thanks Anna for sharing, and being such a generous, and gifted inspiration!

  6. Migdalia Del Valle says:

    Lol to Evelyn…I also almost fell off my chair when I saw my name…I’m so excited…My question is what do we need to do to get the goodies…I’m assuming that they will email being that when we leave a comment we also give our email address.

    Thanks again for picking me….can’t wait to start making window cards….Migdalia Del Valle (Mickey)

  7. amy okada says:

    I am truly excited for the sets of Window Ledge Dies. I am one of those that called into suggest the embellishments, especially the canopy die. The canopy die and other dies are the jewels and accessories of card making.

  21. SheliaP says:

    Anna, thanks for Fan Mail Friday! It’s such fun looking at he beautiful cards the talented Griffinites have sent our leader!
    What a joy it must be to find those little treasures from the heart in the mail.

  22. Juicyfruits says:

    I must have missed that angel group of die cuts.

    I was wondering–when you make coloring books, etc., can you not print them with the ink that is used with your minc machine? Many times I want to use them on a card, & so it just would be a lot easier if you printed them using the correct ink.

    God Bless, Linda
