Christmas candy and a show...

Hello again!

We've got something a bit different for you this release. Instead of traveling into the magical Sweet November Land we'll be staying put in a much more down to earth kind of place. Think of it as the quintessential neighborhood all covered in snow and dressed for the holidays. With the neighborhood kids enjoying their days off from school during Christmas vacation.

Whew! I don't know about you but I'm feeling a bit winded after climbing that hill and racing with Georgia. Best we head for Founder's Park and a nice bench to relax on. Well, surprise surprise... it looks like the Christmas Carnival is in town and the dancing penguin show is just about to start. Little Zach is front row center and he's so excited to be out enjoying the fun and festivities on this sunny December afternoon. Zach tells us that he has been looking forward to the Christmas Carnival almost as much as Santa's arrival and that this year he hopes to get the chance at petting a penguin or two. He has been a VERY good boy this year, ya know. ;)

And it should be no surprise that Zach has some candy to share, take a look...

The Zach candy kit includes; one Sweet November Zach rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Bella Blvd Winter Wonder and Christmas Wishes paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, felt birds, 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 Tuesday, December 6th and I will announce the winners on Wednesday, December 7th. And an update... the December release stamps have been pushed back a day so they will now be available for purchase over at ATS on Thursday, December 8th.


Now be sure to hop on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs. Once again Mette is joining Nancy and Marion and they've all got some super cool cards to share!

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! :)

And that's it for day three of our December SN previews... I hope you had fun meeting this third winter kiddo. Tomorrow is our fourth and final winter cutie, and I know you will not want to miss her. ;)

Both your story and Zach are putting a big smile on my face. I can tell Zach can still enjoy the little things in life. This world would be a better place if we grown-ups could all do the same. I really love this card, Amy, but maybe you had guessed that already ...
