Happy Birthday, Tracey!


Joyce has organized a big birthday party for Tracey today! Happy Birthday Tracey - I hope you're having a super day and that we managed to keep this party a surprise for you! (Lucky Tracey got an extra hour in her day as a birthday present  - we're now back on EST until April!)

There are a ton of people who have been planning this for a few weeks - as you move around blogland today, you'll see how many people are friends with Tracey. She's on so many design teams (including CASology, which is where she and I first 'met'). I've had the privilege of meeting her in person - twice! And she is just as sweet you think she is.  PLUS she loves a good adventure, which is exactly what happened the day that she and I went to visit Virginia!

I decided that I would case one of Tracey's cards for her birthday. She made it in August for a Papertrey bloghop - I love the rainbow and all the white space! It's bright and cheery, just like Tracey!




If you'd like to join us, make Tracey a card and you can link up here on Joyce's blog in the next week or so.

You did a brilliant job of CASEing Tracey's card for her special day, Ardy, but I have to wonder if she didn't CASE you when she made hers since you are the very Queen of the rainbow card!! Hugs, Darnell

Tracey McNeely said...

Ardyth my friend! I love this card and thank you for the beautiful CASE of my card. I don't think it is a secret how how I love your style. I am feeling overwhelmed and blessed today to have so many of my favourite people sharing cards for me. Really the highlight of the day. Thank you and lunch really soon!

Beautiful card with perfect blending of the colours, Ardyth!

Joyce said...

Such a wonderful card. Great idea to case Tracey, and you have made this card all your own. I spotted it as yours the instant I saw it. I am jealous of both you and Tracey because you have met, and I have never gotten to meet either of you...yet (just wait till next Halloween...) Thanks so much for joining on the birthday linky fun for Tracey.

Your cards always install such a sense of wonder in me. I wonder how she makes this so beautiful, I wonder how the sponging is done just so....I wonder if she really knows how great she is??

Okay, I mean that in the most admirational non stalkerish way! LOL!!!
Have a lovely rest of your day Ardyth!
