A very, very good morning to you all...... I'm very happy today as I am going to Spain tomorrow and will be spending some quality time with hubby and my 2 youngest children, my sister and her family :)..... The down fall to this is that I have to leave my daughter and son behind with my 3 grandchildren :( we are a very close family and see each other everyday so I will miss them loads :(
So lots of very happy and sad faces in this post!
Well anyway the card that I have to share with you today is one that I have named Wishes, the sentiment is just perfect for how I am feeling at the moment..... HAPPY and content with life as it is at the moment:)  At Christmas I made myself a few Crafting New Year resolutions...... basically to get off my backside and do all of the things that I wish I had done in the past....  - Take part in some craft classes.... for years I have wanted to do this! So I can tick this box as I have done 3 classes to date and have a few more in the next few months..... to make lot's of new crafting friends.... - I can tick this box too......  Start my blog..... Wow! I've done this too!...... and how rewarding has this been :) Try and see if I can get on a Challenge DT...... well this is where the wish has definitely come true I am on 1 DT and a hush hush one that I will be announcing next week and ...... WELL you will have to wait and see for this one..... It's one of my biggest WISHES/DREAMS come true..... so be sure to have a peep at my blog tomorrow :)...... I have lot's of other wishes too, but these are ones that I will keep close inside my heart and maybe one day these will come true too :)

Soooo to my card - Wishes
I have used a Mo Manning topper - Day Dreaming, available from The Hobby House.

I haven't a list of what I have used today as I am busy packing and getting ready for Spain, but when I return I will do a special post with all of the projects that I upload whilst away and will list and give you all the info on them:)
So I hope you all will still visit my blog over the next few days whilst I am away as I will still upload some pictures of projects that I have made in advance last weekend.

  8. Nikki, after reading your post, and enjoying your card, I have to say that your family sounds magical - as magical as the saying on your card. I cannot imagine such a lovely family life and find myself wistful. What a blessing! You certainly do not appear old enough to be a grandma. Enjoy your trip to Spain! Sounds awesome! hugs, de
