HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRACEY!!!!

(...a little bit late.) As you all probably know by now, yesterday was Tracey McNeely's birthday. And I missed linking up on the day. Oh Shoot! However, I didn't miss the entire party. Joyce, over at Cards-by-the-Sea is keeping the party going all week long, so I'll link up today. Thanks Joyce! A week-long party... Very cool!

So this part in the italics is for you Tracey. Happy Birthday. You have been an inspiration not only to me, but so many of us in this card-making blogworld. Your cards are gorgeous. Period. And you always have the kindest, sweetest words of encouragement for us all. I am grateful to 'know' you. I hope you were able to celebrate your birthday with all those you love, and that Joyce's little linky party helps to make your whole week special. You deserve it! Happy Birthday!!!

And if you have been off-planet for some time, Tracey's blog is In My Creative Opinion. Go. Visit. Enjoy! I did make a card for this auspicious occasion. I CASEd one of her cards, hopefully, in tribute to her. This is her card (and dang!, it was nearly impossible to choose just one!!!):

And here is the card I made to help celebrate:



Other than the sequins, ink, and cardstock, everything is Lawn Fawn. 
Now, everyone...go do a little happy birthday dance for Tracey!
