well there's no reason you can't go - the question is, will you get back in again?

logically it shouldn't be an issue, but I'd check with the extranjería to be sure

Yes , part of the Commonwealth - Calas felices is probably referring to the "departure card" , asking you purpose for visit.

My situation isn't exactly the same as yours since I'm a US citizen. But at one point a few years ago I found myself needing to travel outside of Spain while I was still waiting for my residency to be renewed. I went to the extranjeria where I had submitted my renewal application, explained the situation, and they issued me a certificate allowing me to re-enter the country. They didn't issue the certificate on the spot, by the way. I had to return a week later to pick it up.

I imagine that the handling of a situation like this is one of those things that can vary from one extranjeria to another. But that's where you need to go to see what you need to do. I would not recommend just leaving and hoping that you can get back in again.
