Making new friends this Christmas

A holiday hello to everyone!

Are you ready to travel back to Sweet November Land once again? This time there is a chill in the air and snow on the ground as the inhabitants of this magical place prepare for the most magical day of the year. We should try to find those smallest of the small inhabitants of SN Land, the Fairwees, because I hear that they really know how to celebrate the season in a BIG way! :)

Now that the snow has finally let up and the sun is shining across the fresh blanket of white that covers the ground it is easy to spot a bit of movement over near the skating pond. As we make our way over we find tiny Fairwee Piper putting the finishing touches on a wee little snowman friend. She has taken great care putting him together and she's hoping that with just an extra bit of Christmas magic he might come to life once she places that hat on his head. Do you believe that it will work? Piper's sweet "squee" of excitement and the sudden blinking of his tiny coal eyes proves that we never should have doubted the enchantment of this place. :)

And you had better believe that there is some snowy candy to be had as well...
The Piper and her Snowman candy kit includes; one Sweet November Piper and her Snowman rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Be Merry paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, decorative stick pins, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
Now there is just one final stop for us on this Christmas journey through Sweet November Land as we have yet to find Fairwee Josie. Something tells me that if we return to that same hidden glade beyond the waterfall we might have some luck. The winter weather has created quite the transformation in this place and instead of toadstool rings the trees are covered with mistletoe. I don't think that this is a completely natural occurrence as fluttering just overhead is tiny miss Josie dangling a sprig of the winter greenery. She wants to let all of us know that while decorating, shiny gifts, playing, and merriment are all wonderful things, it is love that is the real reason for the season. ♥

And here's a bit of candy love...

The Josie's Mistletoe candy kit includes; one Sweet November Josie's Mistletoe rubber stamp, one Sweet November sentiment stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Echo Park Season's Greetings paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, decorative stick pins, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.

All you have to do for a chance to win the candy is leave a comment on this post. If you link to the 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 Thursday, October 6th and I will announce the winners on Friday, October 7th. And just so ya know... the October release stamps are all currently available over at ATS!


I hope you take a few minutes to flutter on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs for this final day of sneak peeks. Today Danni is joining Nancy and Rachel and all of their cards are full of Christmas heart.
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! :)


Okay then, that's a wrap on our October SN previews here... but if you head on over to the ATS blog today there are three more chances to win the new Christmas Fairwees. I hope that these new wee Christmas friends have got you excited to create all sorts of magical cards for the holidays this year!

I really, REALLY love your second card, including the sentiment. But I also like those small details in your first card, such as the single trees and the pearls, that you only notice when looking at the card a bit longer.
