Tracey's Surprise Birthday Party!

I am so excited to be joining in on the surprise Happy Birthday celebration today for Tracey McNeely!  I have come to know Tracey through blog land encounters and by all of the lovely comments she leaves as she visits - she is on several Design Teams where I'm always inspired by her lovely CAS creations - and since I am a kindred CAS spirit -  I created a CAS card in honor of her birthday.

Happy Birthday, Tracey - you party animal!
The Birthday Party is taking place over at Joyce's blog where we can all link up our cards for Tracey!  The link will be open for a week - so you can join in by linking your own card for Tracey.

I love this little Avery Elle Party Animal stamp set -  I stamped, cut out and popped up the balloon dog on foam dots.  The label is Tag Sale #3 from PTI.  The sentiment is stamped on a Sentiment Strip from MFT.
 Happy Birthday Tracey!!  I hope you enjoy all of your lovely cards and all the best wishes sent to you on your special day!

I'm also entering this into the Seize the Birthday Challenge.
