This snowgirl will melt your heart

Mornin' friends!

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.

So far we have met a lot of wonderful snowmen but there is also a cutie snowgirl that makes Sweet November her home during the winter months and her name is Adorn D. Yard. Adorn may not be as flashy or as boisterous as the rest of her freezy family but that doesn't mean that she doesn't go all out for the holidays in her own special way. Adorn's take on decorating is more homespun and crafty and she encourages all of her little forest friends to help her out. She especially loves working with the Fairwees to string popcorn garlands for the trees. Since she can't get too close to the heat of a fire that is traditionally used to pop the corn, instead, the Fairwees use their magic to pop it and in exchange Adorn helps place the finished garlands all around. And she doesn't even mind when a Fairwee or little field mouse decides to snack on some of the decor... it's a perfect excuse to string more!

She's also got some sweet Christmas candy to share too, just take a look-see...

The Adorn D. Yard candy kit includes; one Sweet November Adorn D. Yard rubber stamp, twelve 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Merry Little Christmas 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!


Now be sure to head on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs... today Jacilynn is once again joining Nancy with a final frosty friend card!
And 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 wraps up our November SN previews here, but there are even more chances to win over on the ATS blog today so be sure to hop over there and enter to get your name in the drawing. :)
Thanks so much for joining the fun this past week and stopping by each day!

gobeagirl said...

Amy I know I have said this a thousand time, but I think it is worth saying again. You have such a way about writing that I think is just wonderful. You could not only write your own books, but you could illistrate them as well. I was telling Jerry the names of all your snow people and he just loved Adorn D Yard soooo much. I love, love your new papers. I can not believe that I don't have this pad. lol... You would think I would have it as I just love MME. Anyway, I think not only does Adorn have a spectacular name she is also the sweetest little snow lady around. I can see why her little friend wouldn't have a care when it came to eating her popcorn. Hope you have a great day. I don't have a card until tomorrow. :O( I am sooo tired from work, but I am pushing through and will so love the paycheck. lol.... Hugs, Lisa
