There's a chill in the air...

Good morning!

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.

Today we want to get an early start because it's quite the trek through the vast pine forest of Sweet November. But that is where we will find a very industrious rolly-polly snowman that goes by the name of Chill E. Pinebough. Chill E. is a nature loving soul who spends his days weaving together magical Christmas wreaths from the branches of only the finest pine trees. He takes great pride in his work and I hear that some of his handiwork even adorns the doors of Santa's workshop up at the North Pole! Having such high profile clientele hasn't gone to Mr. Pinebough's head though, as he still makes time to chat with us and Pudge, the chickadee. Maybe if we are lucky he'll share a decorating secret or two. :)

In the meantime, there is some sweet Chill E. candy to check out below...
The Chill E. Pinebough candy kit includes; one Sweet November Chill E. Pinebough rubber stamp, twelve 6x6 sheets of Making Memories Twinkle 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!


Don't forget to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs today. Jacilynn is once again joining Nancy and Rachel and their cards are positively decorated with happiness!
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 all I've got for day two of our November SN previews... I hope you have enjoyed meeting this cool craftsman with a warm heart and be sure to come back tomorrow to see who else has arrived with that magical Christmas snow.

What an amazing card. This snowman looks so cheerful. He would be perfect to cheer up someone. Christmas and Advent can be very stressful especially when you work in a store which starts to be crowded in Novembre - like a friend of mine who sometimes tells me strange stories about the customers.
