I'm not sure where to begin. Or how to tell you this. I've been wanting to share something with you for a long while now but couldn't. Now the time has come and I'm just overwhelmed and can't really put it into words so maybe I'll just show you.....

{screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeam} That's right...I'm going to be a Grandma!!!!!! I have been pretty vocal about my desire to be a Grandma and more than once hinted to Nicole and Ben I'd like to be one before I'm 50 and it's one of the few times one of my kids has listened and done as I've asked lolololol. I can't tell you how excited we are for this little bundle (I thought it might be twins but the scan only shows one...maybe next time ;-D) to be part of our family. In fact hubby says that I'm more excited than anyone lol. Ryan and Steven are going to be the most awesome uncles and Christmas is going to be magical once again {sigh} 

Nic and Ben popped in on September 19 and handed me a gift bag and inside was the mug. It was one of the best moments of my life...I get teary every time I think of it. At that point Nicole was only 6 weeks along and I was sworn to you know how difficult the past weeks have been for me lol???!!! It seemed like it was THE time everyone asked when I thought they would be starting a family...did they know???? She had her scan on Thursday and once it was confirmed that the baby was healthy and growing as it should we were finally allowed to share our good news :-D 

We all have a pregnancy app (who would have thunk???) on our phones so every day we can see what stage the baby is at, how it's developing or tips and advice on healthy eating etc. Mama's and Papa's here I come lol.

I haven't had a chance to make them a card yet (still haven't made them a wedding card :-S ) but I made this card for my SIL's birthday in the summer and the image would be perfect to celebrate the news of a pregnancy so watch this space!

I love how this turned out...I really like the colors and those rolled felt flowers....

make me them!

Pretty cute huh

I wonder if QOB approves???

and a little peek at the inside.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenge:

Simply Create - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes

More great news followed today....Killmarnock beat Celtic 2-0 AT Celtic...the first time in 57 years woot woot!!!

And there's more....

I won a Pampered Chef award today for Top Show Average in Scotland woot woot!!! You could have knocked me over with a feather when they said my name.

After all the excitement I'm well and truly pooped so it's just as well we get an extra hours sleep tonight.

I hope you're all having as good a weekend as I am.

Thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x

ps....did I tell you I'm going to be a grandma???

Just got back from Barcelona and checking my blog followers but not intending to comment as a tad tired but could not help but comment on this post.
Mahoosive Congratulations and welcome to the best time of your life. We had 2 girls but we have 2 Grandson's, took a bit of getting used to and only wish they had appeared before we were 50 but we have done our best even with our health problems, and we love them to bits and they love us to bits.
Hope all goes well, I am sure it will, it is a whole new ball game but even more rewarding, enjoy.
Oh yes, the card, fabulous, lovely image and great rolled flowers.
My hubby will be 65 Christmas Day and I will be 64 in January, eldest Grandson is 7, would have liked it t have been earlier but things don't always happen, my eldest Daughter has not had any.
