Anne with an "E"


If you are an Anne of Green Gables fan, you understood my title immediately.  I cannot tell you how many times I read the Anne books.  I love them!!  I have almost all of L.M. Montgomery's books.  I was such a fan of the books that when the movie came out in the early 80's, I HATED it because it was not enough like the books.  I did learn to love watching the movies, but it took me awhile to get over all the "wrong" things in them. The book is always better, don't you think?

My Anne card has been awhile in the making.  Life has been so busy that I've not had a lot of time to make just for fun, but I did with this one.  I've wanted this "Anne of Green Gables" stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie for looooong time and finally just ordered it a couple of months ago.  I printed the image and it sat.  I colored it and it sat, and finally just finished it.  I'm going to make a few more cards with this image for my sisters, my niece, and a few friends.  Last month, we all went to see "Anne of Green Gables The Musical" in Charlottetown.  It was so awesome!!  I had seen it when I was a girl, and other than some new staging and props, it's just the same as it was then.  That's really neat since this year is the 50th year of this musical!!   (It was NOT 50 yrs ago that I saw it!!!!)

Enough chatter, here's the card...

DELICIOUS lunch!  Donairs and donair pizza from Greco!

I love that image - Anne waiting at the station, holding her carpet bag while waiting for Matthew Cuthbert to pick her up.

I didn't know which lighthouse was used in Road to Avonlea and I have never eaten a Greco's donair. I've had their pizza though. Another BIG I've never done is I have never seen the Anne of Green Gables musical. I've seen Anne & Gilbert, though and it was great.

So glad you enjoyed our little island. I hope you get to visit again sometime.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa

PS - Fabulous card! :)
