New Beginnings

Good morning all you crafty souls, hope the sun is shining for you. We saw it this morning but sadly it's dulled down, boo hoo!!
Well yesterday was the last day of trading in my little shop and as I closed the door behind me I felt quite nervous about my journey from here on. My landlady had decided to sell the premises and I couldn't just wait to see when it sold or who bought it and what they would have turned it into as I have clients (friends really)  to think about, so we jumped before we were pushed.
I am moving to a friends Salon and taking all my ladies with me so on to pastures new, hence  the nervousness. I am a creature of habit and I hate change really but my clients and family are really supportive and the other girls in the shop seem really friendly, one of them has worked with me for a couple of years, so I have a friend there already.  So watch this space. I may be posting with a smile and a spring in my step or on the prozac!!!
I have a card I made a couple of weeks ago but haven't had time to post so I thought today's the day to bring her out, and guess what, ha ha ha, yep another Tilda.

I love pink and thought I'd team it with black and I quite liked the colours together, hope you do too.
