Happy Birthday Tracey!

Happy Birthday Tracey!  Today is all about celebrating one of the sweetest people I know, Tracey McNeeley of In My Creative Opinion. You probably had an inkling that your friends were planning to celebrate your special day with lots and lots of Happy Birthday cards, but I am pretty sure you will be surprised by the "number" of people who wanted to participate.  So many that Joyce of Cards by the Sea, our official birthday blog hop planner had to install a linky tool on her blog as the list would be way to long for everyone to copy and paste.  Thank you Joyce for spreading the word and organizing the hop.

For your special day Tracey, I tried to channel you.  You are the expert in CAS cards and although I am sure this card is no where close to being as good as yours, here is my attempt at a true, CAS card...practically.  Only one tiny little layer and a little bit of glitter, but pretty close to CAS.  I used PTI Quilled Elegance stamp set and colored the images with copics.  To see all of Tracey's cards or to share a birthday card for Tracey yourself, just hop over to Joyce's blog and enjoy some birthday inspiration.

Here's hoping you have a fabulous birthday Tracey and enjoy your blog hop!

This is a fabulous card. I had totally forgotten about this set and how much I love it. Now I remember that I pinned another card from you using this set, and I will be pinning this one, too. Thanks so very much for helping celebrate Tracey's birthday.

Love the purples on this wonderful b'day card for Tracey, Cathy!

Oh wow! I love the purples and yellow together - absolutely gorgeous!!

Cathy, how did you know that purple is my favourite colour! Thank you so much for making this beautiful CAS card for me at the linky party. I have pretty much been speechless about this all day, I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful friends. A CAS cards does not have to be all one layer, mine often aren't. Glitter makes everything even 'specialer'--I know that isn't a word but it sounds good. xoxo
