Happy Canada Day & Exciting News!

Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian Friends!  Also a very happy birthday to my Mom, what a lucky lady to be able to share her birthday every year with Canada and at the lake with her family.  My mom has saved every card I have ever made for her my whole life.  That's why this year I am giving her the 'stepped up a lot' card from last weeks Make It Monday challenge.



Now for my exciting news.  CAS superstar Melissa Chipperfield of Smudges in Time is starting a new challenge blog called CASology focussing on CAS cards!

I am over the moon excited that she has asked me to be part of her new design team that will be bringing you weekly challenges.  It will be so much fun to work with Melissa and the rest of the design team to bring you CAS inspiration.  CASology launches on July 10th at 8:00 am (CST).  Stay tuned, in the meantime you can get to know the new CASology Design Team:












Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!

Hi Tracey! This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I love the stamp and the bright crisp colors you've used. It just really POPS off the page. Thanks for sharing this.

I really enjoyed browsing through your blog, and would love to become a follower (if that's OK with you), and would also LOVE having you as a new follower on my blog. Hopefully, we can each gain a little inspiration from one another.

I also have a challenge blog called Word Art Wednesday where your beautiful art would be SUCH a blessing in our challenges. I hope you will check us out and link up (this card or any of your work would be perfect - it's all just amazing!).

Hope to see you soon at both, and have a very blessed week!

Happy Canada Day, and happy birthday to your mom. Congratulations on your new post. I know you will do so well. Your cards are always so inspiring, so a design post is just perfect for you. I'll be interested to see what kinds of words are selected. Perhaps, I will get lucky, and you will pick 'hexagon' I think I could tackle that one straight away.
