Another quilled card

The other day when I posted the Christmas cards that I made I told you that I was saving one for another post because I was going to enter this one in the Take a quill pill challenge.
Well here it is
I know that I've got a lot of practicing to do with my quilling, but that's half the fun.
I'm scheduling this post so that I don't have to rush home and put one together after my day of shopping but I'm sure I will have lots to tell about the days events.

Love the quilled tree! This is one of my favorite card that you have made!

Catherine said...

I like it! I think your quilling is superb.

I bought some very pretty Christmas card stock paper today at Michael's when hubby and I went to Medicine Hat shopping. (Medicine Hat, Albert ~ a city about 200km West of us. Shopping is crap in my small city!!) Hubby is going to a hockey tournament next weekend. I plan on staying in my PJs the whole weekend and not leaving my craft room! You inspire me! :)

Ewwww...I love this one Ann. This is really good. Gee whiz you should open an Etsy store.

I would love to have some of these hand crafted goodies to give as gifts!!

Walter just now got into Ok. and doesn't have enough driving time left to get home tonight.

But, he'll be here in the morning and we will have the day!
Happy night!:-)

Donna said...

I love that card! The tree is so cute and I love the plaid and the bow and the colors - just everything! Hope you had a great day shopping!

tahtimbo said...

That card is fantastic!! That is really paper, because it looks like you made it out of fabric. Just incredible!!

Helen said...

Love the tree, Ann.

With your help, I made some quilling holly leaves. I was so excited. Thank you!

Grace said...

This is super. I like that even the truck is quilled. How did you get the writing on the card? Like the textured paper. I guess I just like everything about it!

Duni said...

It's perfect! The tree is amazing!

Ann said...

Out on the prairie said...

I have a little box of tries and try nots I call them. It takes a lot of practice to get going, but i have found doing more than one is best.What a nice card Ann,last night I think I mastered a squash book.

Marg said...

That is a great card. Really well done. We like that one a lot. Keep up the great work.
Hope you have great fun shopping.

livintheblues for a change I'm trying to avoid the bah humbugs this year :)

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Ann, I love the tree and that bow just finishes the card, it is so pretty.

Charlotte said...

Ann, this is such a great card! Love the quilled tree made with the scroll hearts and the layout is very pleasing.

As for me, the quilling I have no problem with, but I find creating the layouts quite a challenge.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Sandee said...

I love this Ann. A lot.

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

Anita Kumar said...

Miawa said...

Ann said...

Poetic shutterbug. thanks I debated on the bow but in the end was glad I added it

Charlotte I actually found a site that has sketches for card layouts, I'm not good at the layout part myself

Sandee thanks

Anita thank you

Miawa, thanks so much
