Trim up the tree...

Ho-ho-ho hello!

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! :)

Come on, let's make our way through the snowy glen... I think I can smell the scent of fresh popped popcorn wafting through the air, but what can that mean? Before we even spot a Fairwee the answer to our question becomes apparent. Garlands or popcorn and cranberries adorn the branches of each of the trees adding a festive touch to this wooded area. Then a flutter of activity catches our eye and we spot not one, but two tiny Fairwees. It looks like Jilly and Daphne have teamed up to 'deck the halls' with decorations that are not only beautiful but also a treat for all their woodland friends during these long winter months as well. Hmmm... maybe it's not just for their forest friends because it looks like Daphne is helping herself to some yummy popcorn herself! Good thing Jilly has such a good attitude, otherwise she might be a bit put out at having the goodies eaten almost as fast as she is able to string them, LOL! ;)

Of course there is some sweet Christmas candy featuring these wee tree trimmers to be won... take a look...
The Tree Trimmers Jilly and Daphne candy kit includes; one Sweet November Tree Trimmers Jilly and Daphne rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of October Afternoon 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!


Alrighty, now be sure to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs for a "wee" bit more holiday decorating mischief! Today Danni 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 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 next two will be getting into!
