Happy Birthday Tracey!!!

Found out this morning that today is Tracey McNeely's birthday. You all know her, you all love her, and who of us hasn't drooled in pure delight over her mad cardmaking skills?!! Well, we must have a little celebration in her honor, mustn't we?!! I'm thinking we should start out like this:

A few decorations for our party...

A special birthday wish for a special friend!

Tracey, may your birthday be everything you want it to be, and may your life be filled with only the most wonderful, happy days. I wish you all the best on your birthday and always.

What would a birthday be without a card? And I think I must have had Tracey in mind (with a bit of a CASE of Kim) when I made this card on our BABES getaway:

I encourage you all to stop by Tracey's blog and wish her a happy birthday; I know she'd love that! 

(And while I'm at it, I thought I'd drop this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where it's anything goes.) Happy birthday and happy dances, Tracey!!!

Geri said...

You are soooo going to make Martha Stewart jealous with your beautiful color coordinated party favors and your sweet-as-ever birthday card!

You pulled off another fabulous party (sore head and all) that is sure to have Tracey smiling all over her face! about those bangles and that yummy hot pink clutch....

You must've been queen party planner extraordinaire in another life, Bev ... what a chock full of goodness party for Tracey ... so much to enjoy (surroundings), try out (that clutch!) and munch on (those cakes!) ... and the sweetest card, just as wonderful here as in real Lake House life! So lovely to see it again ... and how perfect for Tracey! Hugs, sweet friend, Anita :)

Susanne Vargas said...

Just love your star themed party and I am sure Tracey will, too! And your card goes perfectly with everything!

Kim Heggins said...

oh my...another card I have seen in person and it looks just as festive on your blog as it did in person! So so fun and oh man, what a party! There is enough cake to make me look like two ton tilly but they all do look good enough to eat! Tracey deserves the best and your gave her an amazing party.

Lynn said...

I have no doubt that Tracey loved her party and her adorable card. Love the scarf! :) And the polka dots on her beautiful CAS card are just perfect.

Darnell said...

Another great birthday party for another great card artist friend! Well done, Bevie! That card is a favorite of mine that you made at the Lake House! I took a personal photo of it when it was up on the bookshelf to keep in my to-CASE folder! Hugs, Darnell

Another party extraordinaire from the Queen of Party-Design herself! Such a fabulous array of treats and gifts (the scarf and clutch...want!) that lead us to the grand finale: your oh-so-fabulous card! Of course, Tracey loved it, as do I! You are such a gem, a sweetheart and a blessing!

You've done it again - thrown a perfect party. I bet Tracey would love to celebrate in that wonderful garden and those cakes. OMG. Your card is perfect. That is the BEST sentiment. Is that a stamp?
