I live in the world of grandbabies. My world revolves around my babies. I am so blessed that 3 of the grandbabies (oh ya and their parents too ..lol) live on the opposite end of our house. They give Nana a reason to get out of bed in the morning! My other grandbabies come and visit too, and Nana loves having them visit too! Everyone that said grandbabies are more fun than your own children were right. All this time I thought they were crazy, until I got my first grandbaby. I am still in awe over how much you can love a child that you didn't give birth to. Of course I love my daughters too, but not near as much as my grandbabies! lol Nana loves you Kaylee, Allan, Clayton, Isabel, and Keegan!

Happy Birthday Nikki!!!!

Thank you for joining us for a very special blog hop today. Today we celebrate
the birthday of our "head nut" Nikki. Nikki is the owner and designer of
Paper Piecings by Nikki where you will find wonderful paper piecing patterns.

This hop is dedicated to our fearless leader from her design team

Each of the DT member's has created a special card for Nikki including a
special message on the back side of the card. The cards have all been placed
in a book and sent to Nikki for a memento of her first Design Team members.
Please take the time to stop in and visit each of our DT sisters blog and make sure you leave some comments for the DT. We all depend on those comments to help us improve our work.

And here is my card to Nikki:

Of course, I had to use my favorite Beary, Beary Fun Bears set and make my "almost famous" lol green bears!

Thank you for helping to celebrate the birthday of a wonderful designer,
but more importantly our friend!
Happy Birthday Nikki!
