Hi Everyone

Hi everyone...

I know it has been a long time since i have blogged but i have had to pack up all my crafting stuff and it is now all up my mum and dad's loft at the minute (sad face) i have just no room in this tiny flat and since i have found out i am pregnant this house is just getting more packed lol....yes i'm near 26 weeks pregnant and due my baby boy on feb 11th....i am now top of the list for a bigger house so hopefully it won't be too long until we are moving (fingers crossed)

I am really missing my crafting and blogging so this afternoon while hubby is taking the kids to the football i am going to try and make a card with my digi images and papers and what embellishments i have kept here...i just thought i would pop on and say hi to everyone i will be popping by everyones blogs later to say hi and have a look at everyones lovely creations, i hope you are all well.

love and hugs Nikki xxxxx
