Shiny brights!

Silver and gold greetings!

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! :)

As we continue beyond that popcorn scented glen a new kind of adornment can be seen decorating the tree branches and these ones are shiny and bright. Multi-colored baubles of every shape and size dangle and dazzle in the winter sunshine on branches high and low. Be careful as you duck under that bow... it would be a shame to break any of these pretty ornaments. Oh look, it's Fairwee Mia! I almost didn't see her she is being so still. For once Mia's sassy comments are no where to be found as she is too busy admiring her reflection in one of the bulbs, dreaming that her Christmas wish to be just a few inches bigger will come true this year. Perhaps we should let her keep dreaming just a bit longer and mosey on down this snowy path...

Of course there is some sweet Christmas candy featuring Mia's ornament to be won... take a look...

The Mia's Ornament candy kit includes; one Sweet November Mia's Ornament rubber stamp, one Sweet November sentiment stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Echo Park Holly Jolly 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.
Wow, the snow is falling pretty heavily as we make our way out into a clearing... better bundle up tight. Watching the snowflakes dance as they descend to the ground is a magical experience here in Sweet November Land because as we all know that there are always lovely snowflake fairies to be found here this time of year. And little Fairwee Emaline must know that as well because she is doing her best to be as graceful and lovely as those fairies she looks up to. I don't have the heart to tell her that her snow dance looks more like the hokey pokey than a ballet, LOL!
Still, Emaline is having fun and her joy is rather infectious as it is hard to resist not doing a twirl or two in the snow ourselves.

And if you're not too dizzy, why don't you take a peek at this cool snowy candy that is up for grabs...

The Snow Flurry Emaline candy kit includes; one Sweet November Snow Flurry Emaline rubber stamp, one Sweet November sentiment stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Crate Peppermint 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!


Now it's time to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs for more adorable Christmas Fairwees. Today Danni is joining Nancy and Rachel and their cards will have you walking in a winter wonderland!
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! :)


That's it for day two of our October SN previews... I hope you have enjoyed seeing these wee friends again and come back tomorrow to see what kind of holiday fun the last two will be getting into!
