Time to splash on into some candy!

Hello again, thanks for sticking with me on this busy posting day... please be sure to scroll down for my Tickled Pink preview and CA&Friends blog hop. :)

So I mentioned before that there may be some more mermaids making their way to Sweet November Land and they have finally found their way here and are ready to enjoy the long days of summer in this magical place. There are four new flippered friends to introduce you to and I've got the first two here today.
First up is Shimmer Redkelp... most of the year Shimmer makes her home off of the Pacific Coast. She travels with her sea otter pal, Otto, to all the best kelp beds from Washington to California. Shimmer has a chill, laid back attitude and she is always up for a fun game of tag or hide and seek. And if you are ever driving up the Pacific Coast highway and see a flash and sparkle out on the water it just may be Shimmer waving a quick hello. :)
Shimmer's candy kit includes one Sweet November Shimmer Redkelp and Otto rubber stamp, one 6x6 sheet of Reminisce silver paper, eight 6x6 sheets of Heidi Grace Beyond the Sea paper, one Kraftin Kimmie starfish stamp, Prima e.line pearls and gems, Making Memories paper flowers, Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz, ribbon, buttons, four card blanks, four envelopes and my card.

Next up is Ocean Wavedancer. Ocean is a free spirit who loves the vast playground of the open waters... the further from land the better (unless she's visiting SNLand that is). Her best friend is Echo the dolphin and together they leap and dive in an aquatic ballet of their own creation. Ocean always gets excited when a storm rolls through because the wild waves provide hours of entertainment and fun! :)


Ocean's candy kit includes: one Sweet November Ocean Wavedancer and Echo rubber stamp, one 6x6 sheet of Reminisce silver paper, 6x6 sheets of Sassafras Lass Whale of a Tale and Sweet Scully papers, one Kraftin Kimmie bubbles stamp, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz, ribbon, buttons, Maya Road star stick pin, 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, July 4th and I will announce the randomly generated winners on Monday, July 5th. 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 the magic Traci has created with these lovelies as well... she just always blows me away! :)
I have two more mermaids who are very anxious to meet all of you so come back tomorrow when it will be their turn to bask in the spotlight!
