Darby is back and she brought candy!

Good morning! I hope you are ready for some sunshine because everything about today's Sweet November preview is bright and happy! :) Spring is back in Sweet November Land and all of it's inhabitants are anxious to to get out and enjoy the beautiful, balmy days. Darby the Sprite is spending one of those afternoons chatting with her gal pal, Lulu. I don't know if you've heard but ladybugs are notorious gossips. They know everything about anything that goes on in SN Land and they love to share that news with anyone who will listen. Today Lulu has some particularly juicy info about a cute, young imp spotted wandering through the wood and Darby can't believe her ears! Only time will tell if all this gossip turns out to be true or not... ;) Now of course there is some sweet candy to be had, take a look-see...
The Darby candy kit includes; one Sweet November Darby and Lulu rubber stamp, twelve 6x6 sheets of paper, small Hero Arts acrylic sentiment set, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, twine, 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, April 3rd and I will announce the winners on Monday, April 4th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of March's new stamps over at ATS!


Now it's time to hop on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs and check out what Darby and Lulu are chatting about on their cards! Today Mama is joining Nancy and Rachel and you just know that their fun creations are not to be missed! AND once again... instead of using random generator I will be printing out names and tossing them in a hat SO if you leave comments for the SN gals on their blogs, you will get an extra name in the hat for each one that you do... this will up your chances of winning the candy... fun, fun, fun! :)

Well that wraps things up for day 1 of our April SN previews... I hope you come back tomorrow for day 2!
