Happy Birthday, lovely lady!

Morning all, get me posting before work, it doesn't bode well for me to be so organised!
Today it is my lovely friend Gayle's birthday, have a good one!  xxx
Gayle and I went to Florida together with Karen and Marlene six years ago for CHA and had a fabulous girlie, crafty week away.  Lots of shopping, eating, crafty stash admiring and most certainly lots of giggles.
Here is her card.

Green gingham is her favourite so it would be rude not to.  I have used Distress inks Peeled paint and Crushed preserves together with gingham stamp from Waltzingmouse, the butterfly is by Papertrey ink Love lives here and the sentiment is also from PI Beautiful butterflies.
The ribbon and bling from my stash.
What to get her?  MMmmm.  I love it when folk have a Pinterest wish list but not knowing how old it was and what she may already have I settled on a voucher, that way she can get what she wants.
I have also sent a wee surprise in the post, more about that soon.

It only remains for me to wish you all the best for this Tuesday, I'm away now to work, time for a little food sorting!
