A 'dazzling' preview and candy...

Hello again!

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.

It's hard to miss this next special snow friend as he really has a way of lighting up his surroundings! Say hello to Dazzle M. Nightly. Dazzle may not be a fan of bright sunshine, as it makes him feel all squishy, but when it comes to Christmas lights the brighter the better is his philosophy! Dazzle's displays go beyond mere Christmas decorations and instead are complete light shows that entertain and enthrall all of the other inhabitants of Sweet November Land... lucky us that we get to experience one of his best yet!

And of course he's got some tempting treats to enjoy as well...
The Dazzle M. Nightly candy kit includes; one Sweet November Dazzle M. Nightly rubber stamp, twelve 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Christmas Kitsch paper, small Imaginisce 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!


Don't forget to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs next. Today Jacilynn is joining Nancy and they have both created cards that are sure to "Dazzle" you!
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! :)


Ok, day three of our November SN previews is in the books... I hope you had fun getting to know this frozen master of holiday exterior illumination! We've got one last day of previews tomorrow with a special gal who will melt your heart. :)

Good morning Miss Amy. I think Mr. Dazzle M Nightly is just dazzling! lol... I think he is so cute and I love, love all his wonderful Christmas lighs. I had purchased the lights die from ATS last month and I can just see him on a card with them. I hope that you have pulled out some of your warm sweaters, as it doesn't seem to be getting very hot around here. Have a great Wednesday. Did you see Glee last night? Hugs, Lisa
