You may be my lucky star...

Hello, hello!

Thanks for coming back for day 3 of our Sweet November March release previews! With today's girls we are making our way through the first half of the zodiac... six down and six more to go. Luckily for us the star filled night sky is quite expansive so nobody has to complain about feeling overcrowded. There is room up there for everyone, LOL! ;)

First up today is Leo (July 23- August 22). Leo is the sign of the Lion. She is enthusiastic, powerful, creative, generous and extravagant. She can also be dogmatic and fixed in opinion. Her signature colors are orange and gold, the magnetic colors of the sun.

Check out her candy kit below...
The Leo Girl candy kit includes; one Sweet November Leo 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 Virgo (August 23- September 22). Virgo is the sign of the Virgin and she is reserved, modest, practical and industrious. She's analytical and seeks to know and understand. Her signature colors are navy blue and gray, the classic colors of refinement and taste.
The Virgo Girl candy kit includes; one Sweet November Virgo 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 it's time to hop on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs and take a look-see at their zodiac inspired cards! Today Nancy is joined by Suzi and Stephanne and their beautiful creations are not to be missed!
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 wraps things up for today but be sure to come back tomorrow for day 4 of our SN previews. There will be two new star signs to share and two new fabulous Guest Gals as well!

Wow! I totally love both of them! That orange color suits Leo so well! As of Virgo, she looks like a Tahitian with the dark hair and big flower...

Mrs Weyremaster said...

OMGosh They are both so gorgeous, love the images, and adore your cards. Thank you so much for letting me play with Leo, I love her, although my card looks rather boring compared with yours :)
Gorgeous work as always

Oops, not sure if my comment made it through the dodgy internet connection or not, but I just wanted to say they are both beautiful Amy. I love the vibrant colours you have used and I love that they are so versatile... ie you can choose to keep or wipe off the necklace for a whole other look.

Oh Amy, these are just devine! I love your Leo. She looks so pretty and her colors are perfect! She describes my Madison to a T. She is a Leo and your aren't kidding about Leo's personality. Your Virgo is simply Beatuful! I love, love her face. I was just thinking last night just how fun each and everyone of these is going to be to color. Can you hear the money falling out of my wallet? Did anyone say overtime? heehee Have a great day. We are raining and gloomy, but now snow thank goodness. Hugs, Lisa
