Caladium candy and sneaks!

Morning friends!

Welcome to day three of our Sweet November Twisted Sisters previews!
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.

Meet Caladium, she is quite the little mistress of magic around Sweet November Land with her regal demeanor and impeccable sense of style. And even though she never leaves her mushroom manor looking anything less than perfect that doesn't mean that she doesn't know how to let loose and enjoy herself. Caladium is elegant and nimble and she loves nothing more than to dance with the dragonflies as the sun sets on another autumn day. When she gets lost in the music of the night doves it is always quite the sight to behold. :)

So what's a preview without a chance to win some candy? Take a look at what is up for grabs...
Caladium's candy kit includes; one Sweet November Twisted Sister Caladium rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Basic Grey Indian Summer papers, one mini Inkadinkado Halloween clear stamp set, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, Victoria Lynn pearl sprays, Webster's Pages ribbon roses, ribbons, buttons, 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!
Thanks for coming by for day three of the previews... please be sure to check out all the SN Gals' blogs;
and our special guest gal, Rinne for so much more Caladium magic!
Then be sure to come back tomorrow for day four of our Twisted Sister sneaks! :)
