Today I am posting more Anna Griffin card making efforts from the last week of the Create contest (last week of September 2018). No, I did not win a "golden ticket", but in the effort ~ I actually made 30 card entries to up my chances, I did gain a good deal of happiness in creating again. Being creative is such a wonderful outlet to increase the joy factor! And utilizing the sheer beauty of all the products sold by Anna Griffin, Inc. is guaranteed to make anyone a success. The products are all wonderful quality.

My sisters and sister-in-law have created many holiday and special occasion cards gifted to family members over the years. All of them are deemed "keepers" and go straight to be saved in our memory boxes. Actually, when both of my parents passed, we went through their saved cards and returned each one to the maker. What a beautiful keepsake to keep their memories alive.

Below is a share of the Anna cards made the last week of September...

Anna Griffin Create Contest

During the month of September, Anna Griffin, Inc., is having a weekly contest to give away 4 all inclusive tickets to Anna Create in November of this year.  Each week there is a new contest theme, from which a winner will be chosen. Now these tickets come at $1,500 a pop, so it is a really big deal to win! During the first week, we were challenged to use Anna's Treasury dies to create projects.

These are just a few I submitted.







The 2nd week, we were challenged to create projects with a product called Terial Magic. It is a fabric stiffener that allows fabric to be treated, ironed, and it will become more paper-like.

Here are a few of the projects I submitted for the contest the 2nd week.











For the third week, we are working with Anna's Christmas acetate cards.  They are just so gorgeous and very unique.  Here is a peek at one of the ones I submitted today.


The weekly contest closes each Friday at 2 PM. No, I have not won yet.  Wish me luck!

Vintage Valentine's Day Postcard

The front is just as pretty as the back, isn't it?!!! In my travels and treasure hunts while up in Indiana last year, I always looked for antique postcards to add to my collection. There was only one valentine, but I have several awesome Easter ones to get up in the next month or so. As always, these images are free for your use, personal or otherwise, no strings attached. They were scanned at a 300 resolution so would be suitable for printing nicely up to its original size of 5 3/8 x 3 1/2."
