Star shine!

Hey there!

Welcome back for day 5 of our Sweet November March release previews. We've seen so many wonderful Zodiac Girls already but the fun isn't over yet! So grab a seat in that balmy Sweet November meadow as we wait for the sun to set and the stars to align... wait... I think I see them now! ;)


First up is Sagittarius (November 22- December 21). Sagittarius is the sign of the Archer and she is energetic, ambitious, generous, freedom-loving and a seeker of challenge. She is open to new ideas and exploration. Her signature color is purple, the uncommon color of royalty and the artistic.

You just know there is candy up for grabs too so check it out below...
The Sagittarius Girl candy kit includes; one Sweet November Sagittarius rubber stamp, twenty 6x6 sheets of paper, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, Kaiser Craft star fozz felt, Sakura stardust glitter pen, buttons, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
Next up is Capricorn (December 22-January 19). Capricorn is the sign of the Goat and she is reserved, prudent, patient, disciplined, determined and quick to seize opportunity. She uses cunning instead of force and seeks security. Her signature colors are dark green and brown, the classic, comforting colors of nature and the earth.

The Capricorn Girl candy kit includes; one Sweet November Capricorn rubber stamp, twenty 6x6 sheets of paper, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, Kaiser Craft fozz felt stars, Sakura stardust glitter pen, 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, March 6th and I will announce the winners on Monday, March 7th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of March's new stamps over at ATS!

Be sure to take a few minutes and check out the SN Gals' cards featuring these Zodiac Girls! Nancy is joined by Margie and Alison today and their creations are out of this world amazing!

AND I am doing things a bit different this time... 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's all I've got for today but we've still got one more day to go so be sure and stop back tomorrow for our last two star signs and special Guest Gals!

In the meantime, if you would like a shot at winning some stamps then just head on over to the ATS blog and leave a comment on the Sweet November previews there!
