Twinkle, twinkle...

little stars, how I wonder who you are... :)

Good morning!
Welcome back for day 2 of our Sweet November March previews! We are still sitting in a lush meadow stargazing up into the night sky, getting to know all of the lovely Zodiac Girls as they peer back down at us.

First up is Gemini (May 21- June 20). Gemini is the sign of the Twins and she is lively, energetic, versatile and intellectual. She lives primarily in the mind rather than the emotions and is adaptable to new situations. Her signature color is yellow, bright and luminous, the color of novelty.

Take a look-see below for the candy that is up for grabs today...
The Gemini Girl candy kit includes; one Sweet November Gemini 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 we have Cancer (June 21-July 22). Cancer is the sign of the Crab and she is sensitive, imaginative, emotional, sympathetic and kind. She possesses an active, shrewd and intuitive mind. Her signature colors are sea green and silver, the shimmering colors of the water and the moon.
The Cancer Girl candy kit includes; one Sweet November Cancer 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!
Now don't forget to also check out what the Sweet November Gals have made with these stamps! Today Nancy is joined by Jen and Jeanette and their cards will send you into a whole 'nother galaxy with their loveliness! 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! :)
Alrighty, thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for day 3 of our SN previews. There will be two new star signs to share and two new Guest Gals to feature as well!

So beautiful, yet again! My little one is a Gemini, and the only one in the family that looks good in yellow! My little sister is Cancer - and it's amazing how much the image you drew reminds me of her!! (Love how the end of her ponytail is a crab claw, too!)

Great job, as always!!

Zarah said...

Oh my. Oh wow. I love every card more than the last and then I go back and love the last more and then I just end up loving them all to bits. WONDERFUL!!
I have to admit this though: I ADORE the cancer-card mostest. Why? Because it's my sign and because I'm such a cancer, with all that says: homebody who loves water and all the colours of the sea. That's me!

FANTASTIC work! :D

Bobbi said...
