Sweet snow friends are coming to SN...

Hello, hello!

Are you ready to bundle up and make the journey back into Sweet November Land? The inhabitants of this magical place are still getting ready for a very special holiday season and the fairies, elves and sprites are getting help from some seasonal visitors that only appear once the first snow covers the land. Sure, this time of year it is fun to roll that snow and stack it high into a snowman or two but in Sweet November the snowmen come to life! It's easy enough to find them, all you have to do is follow the wide paths that they leave as they shuffle to and fro.

The first frozen friend that we meet is Wish U. Goodcheer. Mr. Goodcheer is a friendly chap who always has a smile on his face and a Christmas song in his heart. If you spot a shiny bauble hanging low on a pine bough here and there you know that Wish has traveled through, decorating as he goes. Not being a very tall snowman, all of his ornaments are hung rather low but the various fairies help him out when they can by flying some of the shiny brights up onto higher limbs. And if you're in the mood for a chuckle then just you wait until he starts spinning tales of North Pole elves and their antics... it's a hoot and a half! :)

Of course Wish U. Goodcheer has some Christmas candy to share, take a peek below...

The Wish U. Goodcheer candy kit includes; one Sweet November Wish U. Goodcheer rubber stamp, twelve 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Christmas Kitsch paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, punched snowflakes, 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 Friday, November 4th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, November 5th. And just so ya know... the November release stamps will be available for purchase over at ATS on the 4th!


Alrighty, now be sure to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs for even more cheery and chilly cuteness! Today Jacilynn is joining Nancy and Rachel and I promise that you won't want to miss a single card!
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! :)


Well that's a wrap on day one of our November SN previews... I hope you have enjoyed meeting this first sweet snowman friend and don't forget to come back tomorrow to see who else has arrived with that magical Christmas snow!
