Happy Birthday Tracey!!!



SURPRISE!!!

Here we all are, wishing a very happy birthday to our dear bloggy friend, Tracey.

How about some cake?


Now, what do you think of this cake, Tracey?  Don't you think that all this candy would really boost your creativity?

How about this cake?  Super cute, right?  And I know that you love the whole Nautical Trend, seeing as you are all Moxie Fab and trendy, too.

This cake would look awesome as a card, don't you think?  In fact, I may just make a card inspired by this beautiful cake.

Now, this is the cake that I would want.  Aren't those owls just darling?

Well, enough of the cake.  How about a toast to the birthday girl.  Tracey, I don't think there is a single blog out there that you do not visit regularly to leave a bit of love and some encouraging words.  It seems like everywhere I go, you have been there first.  You are such a kind soul, and a creative and fabulous card maker.  I am blessed and honored to be your friend.  I hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with all of your favourite things (that's Canadian for favorite).

Here is my birthday card that is on its way to you right now (a nice way of saying that my card will be a bit late...)



As I was preparing to organize a little bloggy birthday celebration, it quickly became apparent that Tracey's birthday needed a bigger format than a blog hop could handle.  So.....we are having a huge LINKY PARTY.  Come one, come all.  All friends of Tracey are invited.  Please link your birthday card for Tracey.  I will keep the linky open for a week, so please spread the word.  The more, the merrier.

[Caveat:  this is the first time I am hosting with inlinkz, and I am not 100% sure it is going to work perfectly...so if the link up does not work, please leave me a link to your blog post in the comments, and I will work out the kinks when I wake up on Sunday, and then link you up.]

  10. Wow!!! Look at all those cakes! Even the cakes give me card inspiration! You did such a good job organizing this hop, I can not believe how many people are participating! Tracey will be crying her eyes out after she sees this...and in a good way! Your card is just perfect for Tracey...she loves to use those subway style stamps! I also love the two different borders around it, that package stamp is really good and one I don't recognize and I thought I knew them all! Thank you so much for organizing this and your "linky" thing worked perfectly!
