The most wonderful time of the year

Hello, hello!

I promised yesterday that we would be jumping into new Sweet November previews and candies today so let's get right to it shall we?! :)

It may feel a bit early to be thinking about Christmas but not too much when I start making a list of all the Christmas cards I need to do this year... October will definitely be the month I start working on them! With that goal in mind I've brought the babies back for another holiday. So far we have seen them decked out for Easter and Halloween and now it is time for them to put on their new Christmas Eve pajamas and celebrate the season of joy and wonder.

First up is a sweet little girl who's still a bit sleepy eyed from a long night of trying to spot Santa coming down the chimney. She may not have spotted the big guy himself, but she knows he was there because of the present he left for her beneath the tree. I'm sure she will love the gift even if it looks too small to be that pony she asked for... LOL ;)

Now how would you like the chance to win some yummy Christmas candy? Check it out...
Present Girl's candy kit includes; one Sweet November Christmas Baby Present Girl rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of American Craft's Christmas papers, one mini Studio G Christmas clear stamp set, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, Maya Road stick pins, ribbons, buttons, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
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, October 3rd and I will announce the randomly generated winners on Monday, October 4th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of October's new stamps over at ATS!
Alrighty, thanks for checking out day one of Sweet November sneak peeks here on my blog but please be sure to check out all the SN Gals' blogs as well;
and our special guest gal, Kelly, for even more Christmas sweetness!
Then come back tomorrow for day two of our Christmas Babies sneaks! :)

Hi Amy, I can hear your Christmas music playing in the background. :O) This is soooo adorable! I love how you mixed in the traditional colors with the blue. It just works so magically. Super sweet coloring by the way, and as always love your stamp. Hugs, Lisa

Kimmi said...

Awe - she is so sweet. Love the colour's you've given her and the layout is beautiful.

OOooo I really need to start on my Christmas cards. May have to pack away all things girly and sweet and get out the trusted greens, reds and golds, and maybe the odd combo of baby blues pinks and creams!

Oooo eeek I cant believe there are only a few weeks left!
