Birthday card

One of the girls at work has a birthday coming up. Yeah! An excuse to make another card. Like I really need one.
She's a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan and I was going to make something related to that but then I changed my mind. So this is what she's getting. A little more girly than football, but I think she'll like it.


Reeni said...

I think she'll love it! You do great work!

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

I like the stitching combined with the quilling.

Ann said...

Reeni, I sure hope she does.

Sharkbytes thanks, I don't even know what made me do but it worked.

Grace said...

Oh, I love that...just my kind of colors

Roschelle said...

really pretty annie! loving these colors =D said...

Another masterpiece Ann...It must be great to be able to give such original, one off cards.

Duni said...

That is a beautiful card, Ann. Your co-workers are so lucky to be receiving them from you! The colours fit the season perfectly. She'll love it :)

FishHawk said...

Hey, my wife is also a huge Steelers fan, but she would love a card like that, as well. Yukky girls.

Russ said...

Great job Ann. She has to love it. I also like the stitching.

Out on the prairie said...

The stitches gave it some real class, and of course I like the quilling.Got yours yesterday, thank you.

Marg said...

I really like that card. We think the girly thing is perfect. You are really doing well with those cards. Hope you have a great Sunday. Take care.

Anna said...

Dear Ann,
Very pretty! I like it; I think she will too.
Thank you for your kind words on my Saturday Centus #23-post yesterday.
To answer your question: Yes, I would love to write something longer. In fact I do have some stories stacked away. I confess. I am a writer-wannbe.
Best wishes & hugs,

I just love visiting your blog - I love your cards!! I've even been motivated and taken my crafting stuff out of storage.

BeadedTail said...

The card is so pretty she could frame it! She's going to love it!

June Zach (Fledgling Blogger) said...

Your talent is exceptional! I love your crafts as always. :)

Donna said...

Who Wouldn't!!! It's beautiful Ann!!

Erika said...

I am sure she will love it! I once saw supplies for this type of art in a local shop. I thought, "this would be interesting to learn." That lasted two seconds as I realized that I would have to get these eyes and fingers to make those tiny loops and such.
Your work is great, Ann.

Sandee said...

I would certainly love this card. I love homemade cards the very best. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Audrey said...

That's beautiful! LOVE the colors and flowers are definitely the way to go :)

Ann said...

Grace, thanks, I'm really starting to love these colors

roschelle thanks, looking a bit fallish huh?

allotments4you thanks it is kind of nice especially with the price these days to buy one

duni too bad I wasn't more consistent with

fishhawk Yukky girls huh? well...darn if I can't come up with a witty comeback for that

russ thank you I hope she does

outontheprairie glad you got it

marg girly is nice sometimes. Of course I've never been one for too much girly stuff, but I can take it now and then

Anna thank you. You may consider yourself only a writer wannabe but I think your writing is very good. You should consider trying to get some of it published

Emm aww how sweet of you. Hope you have fun with your crafty stuff. I know I always do

beaded tail thanks, I'm hoping it's not one of those that just gets looked at then

junezach thank you very much. Sometimes I wonder if I bore people with too much of them

donna aww shucks, thanks

Erika there are times when my eyes and fingers don't always cooperate with me when I'm doing this. I did have to purchase a pair of reading glasses specifically for doing the quilling

sandee I always prefer something homemade. There's so much more thought put into it

audrey thank you. I'm not always good at color combination's but I thought this one worked well

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Ann, that is beautiful. I love handmade cards and you certainly have a talent for them. Just a ? do you make customized cards for people? I other words if I wanted you to make a card for a special occasion can that be done? Thanks. You can email me at

DSS said...

Well here I was going to ask the same thing that Poetic Shutterbug did :) Do you make them to sell? Because if you don't, you really probably should! Well, unless that wouldn't make it fun anymore. But let me know. Because I adore them. And was thinking...that a little card with a little squish of white in front of a tree of sorts just MIGHT look like a westie posing for a Christmas photo :)

Ann said...

poetic shutterbug thank you very much. I'll email you in a bit

DSS lol a little squish of white huh? Hmm I don't know if I could do anything that resembled a westie or not. I'll have to work on it.

B Boys Mom said...

You should put your stuff in a craft show you do such beautiful work.
