Hi Nic

Lovely card, beautiful image and layout.
It's always sad to leave a job but I hope tomorrow at your new job everything goes well and you enjoy it. The most important thing is having nice people to work with nothing worse to find they are not nice and you don't enjoy the new job.
Good luck for tomorrow
