Happy Birthday Linky Party for Tracey McNeely

VLV Sketch photo TraceyBdaypicA.jpg

This card is my contribution to wishing Tracey McNeely happy birthday via her birthday linky party :)   Tracey and I serve on The Curtain Call Inspiration Team together and she is also a fellow Canadian :)  Though we are at opposite ends of Canada, her kind comments and wonderful personality make you feel like she lives right next door.   Happy Birthday to you, Tracey!! 

In addition, it is also fellow Curtain Call Crew member Jessica Kephart's birthday today too!  Lots to celebrate this fine day :)

I used last week's VLV sketch for my card, stamped one of my go to Plain Jane's (Happy Birthday) on the Tagged Rectangle die, and used the Wavy Heart and the newly released Heart Quartet dies.

If you would like to join us in wishing Tracey a happy birthday, you can go to Joyce's blog and add your birthday card to the linky party.  The link will be open for a week so Tracey can celebrate all week long :)

Thanks for popping in today and I'll be back tomorrow with my Mojo Monday card.

This card is truly stunning. And, you have reminded me that I have that Happy Birthday stamp from Verve--it was one of my first stamp purchases, and went on practically every card I made when I first started. Oh, how could I have forgotten. I especially like your corrugated hearts and how you have lined and stacked them up. Thank you so very much for joining in on all the fun for Tracey's birthday linky party.

Tracey McNeely said...

Marisa my friend, thank you so much for joining my linky party. I am so overwhelmed today by all the love I feel from such wonderful friends. Your card is gorgeous and I need to get that Plain Jane Happy Birthday--love the font! Your cards always inspire me with your expert patterned paper matching and layers that never look cluttered. Love that we share the same geography too! xoxo
