Happy Birthday Tracey!!!


Today we wish the wonderful Tracey McNeely a very Happy Birthday!!!!!  

Tracey was one of the first bloggers I came to admire on-line.  She has a wonderful style that is admired by so very many of us card makers!  I love seeing what she creates each week and draw much inspiration from her lovely cards and projects!  Tracey's blog "In My Creative Opinion" can be found:  HERE

I came to know Tracey through her blog when I began to join in the Papertrey Ink "Make-it-Monday" challenges as well as their Blog Hops.  Her blog was one of the first that I ever subscribed to via e-mail and I love when her posts pop into my inbox!  

Here is a birthday card just for you Tracey - with a cup of cheer to say "Happy Birthday to YOU"!

 I cannot take credit for the design of this card.  I saw Nichole Heady use this sweet cup of cheer and birthday sentiment with the snowman die : HERE and I had to try it out!

I hope this year is full of blessings for you and your family Tracey!  Enjoy your day and thanks for making this craft I love so much extra special by your presence here in blog land!
