A snowballs chance of candy...

Hello friends!

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.

Let's take a stroll down the sidewalk and see who we meet along the way, shall we? Looks like the kids have built a big ol' snowman in Johnson's field and he's quite impressive if... WHOA! Quick, take cover behind that tree before another snowball comes whizzing by! Oh, it's that scamp Max from a couple houses down. He's always been one to get into mischief and this fresh snow is proving too much for him to resist creating his very own icy arsenal. He had better be careful or he just might find himself on Santa's naughty list. ;)

And of course there is some Max candy to be had, take a look...

The Max candy kit includes; one Sweet November Max rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Echo Park Wintertime 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 just so ya know... the December release stamps will be available for purchase over at ATS that same day!


Alrighty, now be sure to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs for even more snowball mayhem! Today Mette is joining Nancy and Marion and I promise that you won't want to miss a single card!
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! :)


Well that's a wrap on day one of our December SN previews... I hope you have enjoyed meeting this first winter kiddo and don't forget to come back tomorrow to see who else is ready to frolic and play, the Eskimo way, LOL!
