Is it too early for some Halloween candy?

Good morning!

Thanks so much for stopping by... today is an exciting day as we are kicking off the Sweet November August previews! Now I know talking about Halloween in the midst of a hot summer heat wave may seem a bit out of place but I'm hoping these little sweeties will have you feeling the crisp cool breezes of October and hearing the crunch of leaves underfoot. ;)

If you were around during Easter you may recognize these kiddos but now they have lost the bunny suits and are all dressed up and ready for some Halloween tricks or treats!

First up is Pumpkin and all of the neighborhood jack o'lanterns with their funny faces all a-glow each look up to this adorable little pumpkin. With curly vines and the brightest smile, Pumpkin is definitely the pick of the patch!
Pumpkin's candy kit includes: one Sweet November Baby Tricks or Treats Pumpkin stamp, nine 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Boo to You papers, Imaginisce snag 'em stamp, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, American Crafts felt flowers, ribbon, buttons, four card blanks, four envelopes and my card.

What Halloween would be complete without a pretty little princess to rule over the festivities? And this sweetie, with her candy apple scepter, is surely the belle of the spooktacular block party. ;)


Princess' candy kit includes: one Sweet November Baby Tricks or Treats Princess rubber stamp, eight 6x6 sheets of Heidi Grace Halloween paper, one Imaginisce snag 'em stamp, 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 everyone is encouraged to play! :)
The candies will stay open through Sunday, August 1st and I will announce the randomly generated winners on Monday, August 2nd. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of August's new stamps over at ATS!
And after you have left a comment here, please be sure to check out the Halloween sweetness that Donna has created with these little cuties as well... her card will leave you a-glow with happiness! :)
Tomorrow two more trick or treaters will be on the scene showing off their best Halloween costumes so come back then to check them out!
