Happy Birthday Jane :)

Morning Peeps!!!
Today it is my lovely SC teamie and gorgeous friend Jane's 40th birthday!! wohhoooo!! Happy Birthday Jane, mwah, Have a fabulous day hunny xxxxxx

I am sooo hoping this card got to her in time and that she has opened it before popping into bloggy land today!!! lol !!! (I always sit on the edge of my seat with royal mail after my 2 years in a row chrimble cards going missing..grrrrrr)

She should recognise the stampy too...;) and I absolutely love this stamp. This card is a happy birthday and super duper thank you all in one!! I am now the proud owner of 3 of these beautiful Simply Sassy stamps and omgosh I LOVE them!! this one is by far my fav as she has been on my wish list so long so she just had to be used and I knew what I wanted to do with a sentiment too...I was feeling creative :) and here it is....

he he he he!! LOVE IT!!!!! yup, I cut all the letters a la tim holtz chip block strip and then glossy accented them onto a thread for the butterfly to fly them out of the envelope (...I so hope that is still working and not completely squished when Jane opens it...)
The envelope is just a lunch money envelope but I love the secret little hidey hole. It was so hard to take a piccy of but I do so love that element of surprise.

I so wanted to match the colouring of her to the papers and I think I just about got it!!  and I am totally sorry I forgot to take a piccy as I was rushing about trying to get a piccy and get it posted so it got there on time!!!! argghhhh!!! but I do remember some of them! yey!!!
There was... 
blush, sunkissed pink,coral- skin
pastel green, soft green and mint green- dress
pastel pink and coral- boots,socks and cuff
cool grey 1 on the clouds.

I also want to rush a quick happy birthday in for my gorgeous friend Heather too, mwah huge birthday hugglies xxxxxxxx

The grungey stamps are from LOTV and are the Grunge Corners, I love those too!!! I did a bit of handstitching with the greaseproof paper magnolia border, the butterfly is from my martha stewart punch. I actually have a soft spot for this card as it is my first Simply Sassy stamp!! 

I am popping this little card in for a couple of challenges too...
Passion for promarkers- Cut it out
Fussy and Fancy- Punches and dies

Right off to get myself a cuppa before Mo's little breakfast buddy arrives. they danced their socks off yesterday morning so I wonder what they will fancy doing this morning?!

Thank you so much for popping in on me
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
