"Pink/White and Flat"

Hello blog friends, thank you for calling by today, love to have you come and visit.

Yesterday I was out all day, got hardly anything done so today has been "Catch up Day"
My Thursday evening crafty friend Elaine and her husband have come out of retirement to open up a new business.  They are opening a Tearoom and will be selling Craft Goods made by Elaine and others including me.  Don`t know what I will be putting in, still thinking hard about it.   I have known this for weeks but was sworn to silence till the Lease was Signed and Sealed.  I was with Elaine all yesterday planning and chatting.  Her husband is a Master Baker, has been for years he still does some baking for orders but just has a small commercial oven.  They have invested in BIG ovens and bigger premises for the bakery which is not at the Tearoom.  Bakery goods will be brought in fresh each day from their bakery premises.  All very exciting I just hope it all goes well for them.. 

Today`s card is an order which has to be posted, the customer wanted it kept as flat as possible.
