anniversary and happy mail!

Hi everyone!  As you are reading this I am currently in Minneapolis with 3 of my girl friends for Scrapfest!  Today I have a full day at the Mall of America where Scrapfest is held, doing make and takes and I have a Hero Arts Colors Your World Class!  I am over the top with excitement!  And hopefully shopping tonight!  I love shopping! I don't think I will be able to write about Scrapfest while I am here, I won't have the time!  It's tiring standing in lines and shopping all night you know!!! I want to let you know that I won't be able to comment on your blogs while I am gone, I won't have a chance!  But I will be doing a random giveaway to someone or someones who leave me comments while I am gone!  I don't care if you win a lot and feel like you shouldn't, I am blessed by all the times you do comment!

Today I have a card to share with you that I made in a hurry when I realized that my husband's family would be celebrating his parents 40th Anniversary while I am gone!  I feel bad to miss it but sometimes these things happen!   Wow to 40 years right?  So blessed to be surrounded by two parents who have been married for so long, my parents celebrated there 31st Anniversary last week!  I may have made this in a "hurry" but I still like it. 
Photo removed as this card is going to be published!

I also wanted to share today some happy mail that Ariel received from two blogging friends!  Lin and Hannah both sent cards to Ariel!  Both came on the same day!  I didn't tell her anything about it so she was sooo surprised:

Doesn't she look happy?  I think she looks so much like both me and my hubby here!

Carter wanted a picture taken, this is what he choose to do!

Lin sent Ariel the card she made that was inspired by Ariel's shirt!  Ariel commented right away how the butterfly looks like one I have on my shirt!  She loved the stickers Lin sent too!  :>

Hannah sent Ariel the cutest mermaid card she made!  Ariel of course loves it so!  And the glitter Hannah sent!

Thank you so much Lin and Hannah!  You are too kind and really made Ariel's day.  The cards started on her dresser but moved to her purse since she wants them with her all the time!

Gorgeous card, Anita! And Ariel looks so cute with her pretty cards! SO sweet! :)

Lin said...

How sweet she is (and Carter is just being a boy)! So glad that she had a special day when the cards arrived! Thanks for the mention, Anita!

LOOOOVE the card you made; I have that set but have been uninspired by it - not anymore!

I'll be thinking of you all at Scrapfest - store up all those wonderful memories and share them with us when you get home! Hugs!

Hannah said...

Awww.. sweet Ariel. So happy to see her smile! (she is gorgeous, I know she will grow up to be a charmer!)

Lovely card, too - very elegant with the white embossing and pearls!

Hope you have a blast at Scrapfest, Anita. And have fun shopping!

Hugs, Hannah

Love your card- I'm a sucker for vellum, so I love the way that looks. Have fun at your scrapfest.

Ariel looks so happy.... TFS. Enjoy.
