Sweet November's flurry of sneak peeks

Welcome back for day 2 of our Sweet November December sneak peeks!

This is the time of year when the temperature drops and the clouds hang low and full over an expectant Sweet November Land. Everyone is waiting and watching for that very first snow to fall because they know that those first few flakes aren't just any snowflakes but rather the very special Snowflake Fairies that come to paint the world in their shimmering white magic.

Say hello to Nixie! Nixie is a free spirit who can most often be found racing around in the blustery, gusting winds that nip at your nose and make you pull your hat down tighter during a snowstorm. She's a bit of a trickster and loves to direct the snowdrifts to and fro until every path and lane in Sweet November Land is hidden from sight. She's a girl on the go who seems to embody not only the hustle and bustle of the season but all the joy as well.

Ok, time to take a peek at Nixie's candy...
Nixie's candy kit includes; one Sweet November Snowflake Fairy Nixie rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of various papers and vellum, one mini WeR Memory keepers Christmas clear stamp set, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, paper snowflakes, ribbon, 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, December 5th and I will announce the randomly generated winners on Monday, December 6th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of December's new stamps over at ATS!
Well that's all I've got for day two but don't forget to head on over to the amazingly talented Sweet November Gals' blogs...Traci and Rachel and our December guest, Angela, to see Nixie take flight on all of their fab creations!

She looks so serene and pretty.

We have plenty of snow in Southern Finland and it's getting colder every day (-18 degrees Centigrade this morning). But the snow glitters like diamonds so I guess the Snowflake Fairies have already visited us. Have a great day!
