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.


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

  2. I like the stitching combined with the quilling.

  3. Reeni, I sure hope she does.

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

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

  5. really pretty annie! loving these colors =D

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

  7. 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 :)

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

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

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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,

    Anna's SC Week 23

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

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

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

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

  17. 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.

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

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

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

  20. 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

  21. 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

  22. 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 :)

  23. 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.

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