Who Loves Anne of Green Gables??

This Mo Manning image is called "Prince Edward Island" and depicts one of my favourite childhood fictional characters - Anne of Green Gables - and she was a "must have" for me. You can purchase her from Mo's store HERE.

I remember having read all of the books and sitting through the series and movies everytime they came on the TV - no such thing as buying a television show on DVD or Blu-Ray in those days! I think I drove my family crazy. These days I'm obsessive when it comes to Pride and Prejudice - even though I studied it for 2 years in High School - LOL. I know my family roll their eyes whenever the DVD comes out - YAY - 6 HOURS of BBC excellence ; )

Anyway - back to my card! I just LOVE the way this has turned out - the colours and textures remind me of a Spring day - perfect for a young girl embarking on a new life! The DP is from 7 Gypsies - and has a marvellous array of colours and images - who needs more! Just pop the image on, some lace, flowers and pearls with some Spring butterflies and its done!

Oh Debbie, this is soooo pretty, loving that paper and with the lace and parls and flowers it has a gorgeous vintage spring feel to it. I think I saw most of a series of Anne of green gables when I was pregnant and had nothing else to do but watch day time TV, I was very quickly hooked, lol!

OMGosh, look at that gorgeous lace! And, of course, a stellar piece of art!

I was an avid reader as a child, but I don't recall reading Anne of Green Gables. Maybe I should now?

Counting the hours 'til you're here to teach me how to color to beautifully!
