12 Weeks and counting...

Well I almost forgot to tell you all about our exciting news... are you ready?
John and I are expecting another baby :)
We had our 12 week scan yesterday, and the midwife said we are looking at Aug 18th as the due date!
This is why I've been so sick since Christmas, I get horrible morning sickness that lasts all day. I'm really hoping I start to improve so I can get back to crafting on a more regular basis.
And so to celebrate... the baby... not the morning sickness! I've got a little bit of candy to give away!
**Candy now Closed**
So what can you win? This sweet little Rachelle Anne Miller clear stamp 'going fishing', some assorted 6x6 papers and 3 rolls of ribbon. I'll see what else I can find to add before the month is up! I thought some baby things may be appropriate :)
To enter: Please add your name and blog url to Mr Linky... fingers crossed he works as this is the first time I've used it!
Candy is open worldwide, just pop a link back to my candy up in your sidebar please, and I'll draw a random winner on hmm.... lets keep it open until Sunday the 28th of Feb.
I'm now looking forward to the 20 week scan although it seems so far away! We will then be able to find out if it's a baby boy or girl! We have decided it will make renovations and painting ect easier, but we're not fussed boy or girl, the important thing is that it's healthy!!
Thanks for stopping by, happy blogging xx

**We have a Winner!** picked number 14 out of 1-46 and that is Debbie! Congrats Debbie! Please send me your postal address to and I'll get this sent out to you before the end of the week! Thanks to everyone who entered and also for your kind comments, I'll have more exciting baby news in early April :)
