Dreaming of some Christmas candy...

Good morning!

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.

So did you enjoy the Christmas Carnival at the park? Those penguins really did have happy feet, LOL! As we continue our stroll through this winter wonderland we eventually find ourselves downtown on Main Street. All of the little shops are are decked out in their finest holiday decor... the sights, sounds and smells make you feel like you are living out a Christmas song. Standing just outside the window display of Miller's Department Store is little Tess. She seems lost in her dreams of that one special gift to ask Santa for. A teddy bear would be nice but perhaps a fancy doll with pretty dresses would be better? Oh how is she ever going to decide?! ;)

One thing she knows for sure is that she likes candy, take a look...

The Tess candy kit includes; one Sweet November Tess rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly 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 today, December 6th and I will announce the winners tomorrow, December 7th. And once again... the December release has been pushed back a day so the stamps will be available for purchase over at ATS Thursday, December 8th.


Don't miss checking out the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Once again Mette is joining Nancy and Marion and they've got some sweet Tess inspiration for you!

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, my friends, is a wrap for our December SN previews! Thanks so much for visiting each day and checking out the new stamps... I hope you had a good time! :)
