Wet and wild candy

Hiya sweeties!
Here we are at day two of the Sweet November sneak peek candies and I've got two more lovely mermaids for you to get to know better. :)
Don't forget that 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!

Now, as I mentioned yesterday, these special mermaids travel from far and wide to spend their summers basking off the sunny shores of Sweet November Land making these few months even more magical than usual. Coral Reefweaver has come all the way from her home in the Great Barrier Reef and she has brought her little fishy friend, Moki, with her. Coral spends most of her days sculpting and decorating the ocean floor with amazing works of undersea art. Not only does she create beauty and wonder but she also provides homes for all her little friends needing shelter from the big blue.

Coral's candy kit includes one Sweet November Coral Reefweaver and Moki rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Basic Grey Two Scoops paper, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, a Sakura stardust glitter pen, ribbons, buttons, four card blanks, four envelopes and my card.

And the last of the mermaids (for now... hint...hint) comes to us from the frigid waters of the North Atlantic... please say hello to Treasure Tempestwind and her pal Eddy! When Treasure and Eddy aren't playing tag amongst the ice burgs she likes to search for shiny baubles, gems and coins amongst the wreckage of sunken ships which she then loves to adorn herself with. This girl has some serious bling!


Treasure's candy includes one Sweet November Treasure Tempestwind and Eddy rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Kaiser Craft paper and two 6x6 sheets of Reminisce glitter paper, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, a Sakura Stardust glitter pen, ribbons, buttons, three stick pins, four card bases, 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 are treasures plucked from the seas and you will love every single one of them! :)
Be sure to come back tomorrow when I'll have two more summertime friends to share with you!

Is it wrong to be in love with rubbah???? Don't tell me 'coz I don't care. These are absolutely my new faves lovely!! I wish I had them now - its a dark and gloomy, wet and miserable day here in ol' Sydney town and the forecast for the next 5 days is much more of the same.....lots of inside time getting inky and creating - guess I'll have to store up some of the mojo so I can play with these beauties when they arrive.
Can't wait to see more of their waterluscious friends soon (hint, hint).
