Good Sunday morning to everyone!
I've got a lot to share in this post so I'm going to jump right in to it. So here we go...
First off, let's announce the lucky winner of the Chanter Heartsong candy since I know you've been waiting ever so patiently for that. :)
So I consulted good ol' random generator and the winner is....................

Congratulations Leah! Email me at email@example.com with your mailing addy and I will get your goodies right off to you. :)
Thanks everyone for playing along and as always there will be more candy to celebrate February's Sweet November release at the end of the month!
Now onto more fun happenings... this past month I have enjoyed participating in the Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Inspiration Challenge and recently I was delighted when Rachel invited me to be their Guest Sweetie for the month of January! Every Sunday I will be posting my cupcake inspired card starting with today's. :)
So if you are looking for some challenge fun to get your creative juices flowing I highly recommend you check out the super cute pic Rachel has chosen for this week and join us... we would love to have you play along! Just make sure to add a direct link to your NEW creation via the Mr Linky on Rachel's blog by Saturday, Jan 9th at 9 pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC40 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required! Rachel will post the Top 5 next Sunday!
And here's what all the Sweetie's have done today:

All this talk of guest dt spots leads me to my last big announcements of the day... recently Christine, the illustrator of CC Designs stamps and owner of All That Scraps, has decided to make Traci (wickedpixie) the first official designer for Sweet November Stamps! I am over-the-moon excited to have her working her magic with my stamps every month as she is an amazing talent and just the sweetest gal to boot! :)
This wonderful turn of events has opened up the opportunity for me to create a monthly guest designer spot for Sweet November... here are the deets:
Each month that Sweet November has a stamp release I will choose someone to send that entire release to and they will post cards and/or projects on their blog during sneek peak week. I will also have a little feature of them right here during that week as well. :)
How do you get a chance at playing along you ask? It's simple... show me what you've been creating with my stamps! I LOVE seeing how everyone is bringing the Fairy Sweets to life and I try to get around to see as many as I can but if I've missed something or you make something new, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your work.
In fact our very first Sweet November Gal has already graciously accepted the February spot and she is Amy Gould (Crafty Amy). Amy has been an enthusiastic supporter of Sweet November and has shown the Fairy Sweets a whole lot of love on her blog and I can't wait to see what she does with the new friends joining the SNS family next month! :)
Whew! See, I told you I had a lot to share today! If anyone has any questions about anything feel free to email me... I'm always happy to chat with my fellow stamparistas. :)
