Joyce's Birthday Blog Hop




Happy Birthday Joyce!






Today is my good friend Joyce's birthday and Kim has organized a birthday blog hop in honour of her special day.  If you don't know Joyce I would be so surprised.  She is such a thoughtful crafter and is always leaving such lovely comments on people's blogs.  That is how I met Joyce, through commenting.

  Over the past couple years we have become closer through commenting, emailing, being shipping buddies, sharing orders and sharing supplies and not a day goes by that we do not connect by email or Facebook. She is truly the sweetest.  I hope that you join us in wishing her the happiest of birthdays today by following this blog hop and leaving her some birthday wishes on her blog.

Tracey (that's me)

This card is so cute and even reminds me of Joyce. Love the sun stamped in the corner and I never get tired of seeing those Lil Inker rectangles!

I can say with perfect certainty that as beautiful as this card is on the big screen, it is even prettier in person. I love all the elements you used--they are all some of my favorites--the stitched rectangles, that awesome Lawn Fawn paper, the Winter wisteria paper, and that fabulously stylish birthday sentiment! It looks wonderful with that sun/flower stamped on it, too--I am going to try that myself some time. Thank you so much for your kind words and your friendship, and for your beautiful card and gifts.
