Heart Candy & Weekend Break

Today's heart candy is a good one, in my opinion. It an unmounted stamp set called Lola with Flowers. You will need to trim the rubber and mount it. I use the EZ mount cushion foam for mine. You can only get this stamp from the UK. I placed an order and added a couple of extras for giveaways!

To win just post a comment on this post by Tuesday and I will choose a random number on Wednesday and post here with the winner.
Have I told you all about my housing situation. We bought this fixer upper (or money pit) last December. When we moved in the baby was 6 months old and still sleeping in our room. So his room became the junk room. Well now we are expecting another baby and it's time to move Tyler into his own room before the baby comes and my husband, the "procrastinator" has not worked on the house in months and the room is filled from floor to ceiling. So this weekend and the next 4 weekends we will be working on house projects to finally get that room cleared out. It was causing me a lot of anxiety so I'm glad we're working on it. So I will be MIA until Monday, but I will be on break next week so I'll have plenty of time for scrapbooking and stamping. I will be spending this weekend doing what I can, probably laundry and cleaning up my scrap area.
I hope that everyone else's weekend will be a little bit more fun!

Wow, two little babies, how wonderful for you. But do take it easy and don't overdo. As for Lola, she is a doll and I would love to know she was coming to live with me. Thanks for the chance to win her.

Pam said...

Fixer uppers are a lot of work but well worth it if you hang in there! However, i think you are very brave taking one on with two little ones counting your soon to be addition! Congrats on that by the way! Thanks for the chance to win this stamp, I admire them on blogs but am not sure how to order from another country. Please pick me, I would really enjoy her!

TTRIPLE AWESOME CANDY, I have been wanting one of these stamps forever, but am to cheap to order them!!!

Julie Mutch said...

What a sweet little girl stamp. Lola is just adorable, I'm seeing her pop up more and more on different blogs that I see.

Sounds like you've got a busy time ahead. I know it's a lot of work, but such a good feeling when it's all done. Try to have fun with it! :)

Have a great weekend!

Fixing up a house can be alot of work, we have boughten two fixer uppers. The 3 time we got our heads on straight and bought a house that just needed some painting and miner repairs. All though fixer uppers can be very rewarding and satisfying. You just be careful and don't over do it with the baby. Take lots of breaks and don't lift anything heavy.
I have two boys so most of the stamps I buy are boy related, a girlie stamp would be fun!

Take care of those babies and your self.

Linda said...

I wish you the best getting everything ready for the new little one.
The stamp is so sweet. Thanks for the chance to win.

You sound like Wonderwoman!!! Good luck with that "junk room". They can really get out of control, can't they? Love the stamp set. The UK merchandise is so different and cute.

Janet said...

What an exciting time for you! Lots of work ahead, but will be worth it when it is done in time for the next family arrival! As for the blog candy, I would LOVE to win the Lola stamp. She is so cute! My mom's name was Lola and she died when I was young. That name is obviously very sentimental to me. I would love to win it. Thanks for the opportunity. Have a great weekend and hope you gets lots done on the room!

Elaine said...

WOw. The fixer upper situation can end up taking a lot of time and energy! Good luck with your project and work ahead! I love the little image from Lola! I have one or two of them, but not this one!! woohooo! I hope you pick me! :)

Nickalli said...

I haven't gotten any of the Lola images yet - this one is the cutest by far!! Good luck on your son's room. I hope you are "nesting" that will make it seem better than it is! :0)

Heather said...

Cool blog candy. Congrats on a another new addition!

We sold our house and are waiting for word on an offer we made on another house (my husband got a new job so we have had to relocate.) My problem is the opposite of yours- my husband likes to get rid of stuff! We have an understanding that anything in my stamping domain is off limits to him! LOL

Linda SS said...

What a cute stamp - thank you for the chance to win. Have a wonderful Spring vacation.

Giovana said...

Woww I hope everything works out the way you want. I wish I could be close to you so I could help you, I love to clean!!!!!, just be careful not to do too much.

Really cute giveaway.

God bless
Giovana
