Some salt water candies

Hey, hey, hey!
So are you ready for some Sweet November sneak peeks and candy? I thought you might be. :)
I've got two brand new mermaids to share with you and two chances to win!
Oh and there is still a chance to win all four mermaids over at the ATS blog... all you have to do is leave a comment over there too!

Well what are we waiting for? Let's dive right in, LOL!

So summer is here and that means the Sweet November mermaids are migrating from all the corners of the globe to spend this special time of year on these magical shores.
Our first finned friend to arrive is Pearl Tidepool. Pearl has traveled all the way from the Indian ocean and her little pal, Seamoor decided to tag along. This fun loving pair of friends love to ride the currents and dance through the waves. Pearl is always the life of any undersea party... all the fish love her! It must be the hilarious jokes she always tells... fish just love to laugh, ya know! ;)
So Pearl's candy kit includes one Pearl Tidepool and Seamoor rubber stamp, 10 sheets of Doodlebug papers, one Technique Tuesday clear sentiment stamp set, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, buttons, ribbons, four card blanks,four envelopes and my card.

Now meet Fathom Calmsea and Lio (well... Lios on this card LOL). Fathom spends most of the year in the warm Pacific waters near the Hawaiian islands. She is a bit quiet and as mysterious as the deepest depths of the ocean. Her calm, caring demeanor leads her to watch over the smallest most vulnerable of her fellow sea creatures and they love her for it.


Fathom's candy includes, one Fathom Calmsea and Lio rubber stamp, six sheets of 7 Gypsies paper, one sheet of Paper Patch paper, two sheets of Reminisce glitter paper, one Sakura Stardust glitter pen, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbons, buttons, four card blanks, four envelopes and my card.
Now all you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment on this post. If you link to this candy on your own blog that is great and much appreciated but not a requirement... I want everyone to be able to play along. And when I say everyone, I mean everyone... I will ship the candy anywhere in the world so all you mermaid lovers out there are encouraged to play! :)
The candies will stay open through this Sunday, June 6th and I will announce the randomly generated winners on Monday, June 7th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of this month's new stamps over at ATS!
And after you have left a comment here, be sure to check out all of the AMAZING cards the SNS gals...Traci, Jenn and Elaine have to share today on their own blogs. Their cards will have your head positively swimming with the possibilities of these stamps! :)
Come back tomorrow when I'll have two more mermaids to share with you!

Tonje said...

LOOOOOVE THEM! Ohhhh, these are the most wonderful stamps I have ever seen. If I could only have one more stamp for the rest of my time, I would have to go for Pearl. I've totally fallen in love with her! And that little turtle is so cute. My youngest girl has a wee teddy turtle (called Russ, but she can't say the letter "R" so she calls him "Wuss"...lol...) that she has to have with her in bed every night... And she would absolutely love to colour in your Seamoor. Thanks for the chance to win.

the whimsical butterfly said...

They are both SO gorgeous, AMy! What a great addition to your already awesome line of stamps. They're perfect for summer coming, too! Makes me wait to "Dive in" indeed! Pearl is my fave so far-such a sweet little face and I LOVE her hair! They are both gorgeous, though!

...just Barbara said...

Wonderful and vibrant! How many companies do you draw stamps for? Out of the four, these are my most favorite but the one with the turtle catches my eye the most. Lovely!

Nicole said...

Love, love, LOVE these mermaids! And their little friends too :) Pearl would probably have to be my favourite!
