Not long now!

Good morning fellow bloggers....How are you all? All shopped out and looking forward to the Christmas festivities? Not long now before we can all sit back, relax and enjoy......well I can dream LOL! I am so looking forward to spending time with my family though, especially watching my grandchildren open there presents....I am so very blessed to have my family live so close to me!
I have now almost finished my Christmas shopping and even sorted my outfit for my sons wedding on which is this Saturday:)
I have had a few days off from crafting but am itching to get back to my craft room to make some Heartfelt Creations samples for the CHA......talking of which! Guess who is going?
Yes! Me:) How lucky am I....I have wanted to go for several years and in January another one of my dreams will come true:) What a brilliant start to the New Year!
I can't wait to meet some of my Heartfelt Creations teamies and also see some wonderful and inspiring new products:)
Before I share my card today I would just like to apologise for not doing my full usual tutorials. Time is of an essence at the moment so I have decided rather than not do any blog posts I will just shorten them so that I can still share my creations with you all.....I will be back to my normal posts soon though:)

  8. Hi Nikki and Nikketts. A truely beautiful card for us to feast our craft hungry eyes on : )
    First you amaze me being old enough to have a son ready for marriage, then you completly amaze me talking about Grandchildren !!!
    Christmas this year is just a misery for myself and Mr Lancashire as we recently lost our little dog who I devoted the last few months to (even MORE than usual) due to his health I slept in the lounge with him for months as things got a little more difficult (PLEASE NO SYMPATHETIC RETURN MESSAGES AS MY HEART CANT TAKE THEM AT THE MOMENT) Thank you xxx he loved and enjoyed Christmas so memories are more raw than happy at present. So I cant be doing with it this year.

    Nikki, what a wonderful year ahead for you, it may have been hard work, and there must have been days you could only wish and dream to have your work recognised and appreciated by those in craft world (my wish and dream too my love) but now its all happening for you and SO deserved.
    I may not be alone in asking, but Im going to ask 2 cheeky questions Nikki. 1. Are we going to see a sample of the wedding stationary ? Always wondered what a professional's wedding stationary would look like.
    And 2. Are you putting a picture up of your Son's wedding ? Told you they were cheeky ! Sorry.
    Ive looked through your gallery, and how your work has changed, your work now is SO sophisticated and 'grown up' its amazing and beautiful. Dont worry about a full tutorial, we all know what its like trying to fit everything in, let alone do all you HAVE to do plus your blog ! As long as we have the ingredients, we can cook the rest bit by bit so dont worry hon.
    Have a lovely evening Nikki and Nikkettes, hope to see another work of art tomorrow.
    Hugs to all.
    Lancashire Steph xxx
