Just a bit twisted...

Good morning!

Are you ready for some brand new Sweet November sneak peeks?
With the end of summer nearing and the days growing shorter the longer hours of night bring with them there own kind of magic in Sweet November land. You see, when the sun goes down and all of the Fairy Sweets have gone to bed, that is the time when the Twisted Sisters come out to play. These fairies love the night life and are all about being mysterious and fabulous in their own quirky kind of way. And even though each one is named after a poisonous flower these batty winged little fairies wouldn't hurt a fly.

First up this week is miss Oleander. Some of you may remember an earlier version of her that I shared a couple months back and now she is finally here to make her official debut! Oleander has the appearance of being quiet and contemplative but behind that innocent look she is working out a scheme to get the resident hoot owls to take her for a joy ride on the night of the full moon... there's just nothing like soaring high through a star filled sky with the crisp air blowing through your hair. ;)

And what is a preview without a chance to win some candy? Wanna see what is up for grabs?
Oleander's candy kit includes: one Sweet November Twisted Sister Oleander rubber stamp, ten double sided 6x6 sheets of K&Co Amy Butler paper, one small Inkadinkado Halloween clear stamp set, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbons, buttons, Creative Imaginations butterfly gem brad, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
Now all you have to do for a chance to win this candy 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, September 5th and I will announce the randomly generated winners on Monday, September 6th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of September's new stamps over at ATS!
Okey dokey, that's all I've got for today but please be sure to hop on over to all the SN Gals' blogs;
and our special guest gal, Rinne to see all sorts of Oleander loveliness!
Then come back tomorrow for day two of our Twisted Sister sneaks! :)
