Cheryl's 40th

Afternoon folks.  The weather here is horrible again.  Sunny for a very short while but still nippy, now it is teaming of rain again.  My card today I was requested to make for a lady in my apartment block for her Step- Daughter's 40th birthday.  I had a lot of no no's that I could use.  I was not to use lovely ribbon tied in a gorgeous bow, or anything too fancy.  Not even on the box lid. Also not to use anything pink as she hates it.  Nothing too pretty.  After a lot of chatting I was told I could use butterflies if I had too!!!! She is a teacher that was a bit hippy in her youth and still is a bit to a certain extent.  Adores daisies but it had to be the traditional white.  I found this image thank goodness that seemed to fit the bill.

Thank you for looking.  I do hope she likes it. Footnote:-  Just taken it to her and she LOVED IT!!!! Phew!!

2nd Footnote:- Sadly we have just all been told that a lady in our apartment block died in the night and our House Manager was the one to find her.  We have had Police and the Doctors here on and off all day but the House Manager couldn't tell us what was going on until the family said she could.  We are all very close in here and it has hit us all hard, especially the older ones.
