Anna Griffin Fantastic Flips Cards

 The bad news is that I succumbed to the lure of the Anna Griffin Fantastic Flips card kit recently offered on HSN.   The good news is that I DIDN'T get the auto ship option!  (DH was not impressed, however.  LOL!)

 So, we were off in our RV last week to the southern Oregon coast for our Spring Break trip and the weather was just gorgeous!  DH went fishing in the bay with a buddy and I unpacked my Anna Griffin kit while Cocoa and Katie lay in the sun and snoozed.
 
 I like this style of card very much because it has plenty of room for embellishment AND for adding a personal message to the recipient.  I don't like that the card will not stay closed and lay flat when not in the envelope but that doesn't seem to bother anyone else!  Anyway, I had fun for a couple of hours making cards for all occasions and then got very bored with embellishing with just flowers and butterflies.  The unfinished cards got packed away until I have access to the variety of embellishments in my craftroom.   I can't wait to try the accompanying dies out for myself.

 Here's a look at three of the cards I made:-


And to my surprise, I found that I really like this unadorned sympathy card: -

And here's what Cocoa has to put up with!   Good job he's a mellow, yellow labradoodle!


Thanks for visiting with me today.  Happy Sunday!  : )  Christine

  1. Nice cards. I have some Anna stuff and the only kit I bought was her pop-up Christmas cards and I think I'll have leftover embellishments forever. But I've never taken any craft stuff away with me. I think my husband would flip. lol. TFS.

    1. I take my stuff along so that he doesn't feel terrible when he goes off fishing! Such a good wife, right? : )
