Popping up with some SN fun!

Welcome back my friends!

We find ourselves still in Sweet November Land, enjoying a break from the winter gloom while passing the time with the Spring sprite, Bloom. It really doesn't seem like it can get much better than this I tell ya... though I have to say that I'm kinda starting to feel a little hot. Like the sun is shining brighter and the day is quickly getting much warmer. Bloom is suddenly very excited and when we ask her why, she explains that her sister must be coming!
Sure enough, only moments later another small sprite comes gamboling out of the woods, a large mushroom cap perched jauntily atop her head. The two sprite siblings laugh and embrace each other then exchange a quick hello and goodbye just before Bloom bids us all farewell. After a quick wave goodbye to her sister, this new sprite introduces herself as Shroom and just like Bloom, she has an important job to do too.
Wherever Shroom goes summertime follows, with it's long hot days and bright sunshine, the ripening of fruits and veggies along with the perfect excuse to swim and just relax. Hmmm... I think I could go for some of that relaxing right about now, followed by a quick dip in the river if the temperature continues to rise!
Still, I was curious as to why Bloom had to leave so suddenly? Shroomie is happy to explain that that is how it's always been... she follows her sister and when they meet it is a brief yet wonderful hello and goodbye as none of the four siblings can stay in the same place together for very long.
Then she yawns and settles back into the tall, sweet grass amidst the mushrooms to enjoy a summer siesta... and she encourages us to do the same. ;)

Before you drift off though, take a look at Shroom's summertime candy...

The Shroom candy kit includes; one Sweet November Shroom rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Imaginisce Twitterpated paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, butterfly punch outs, 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, February 3rd and I will announce the winners on Saturday, February 4th. And just so you know... all of the new February stamps will be available for purchase on Friday at the ATS store.

Be sure to take a minute and hop on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs today. Sammi, Nancy, and Marion have plenty of fun designs popping up to charm and delight you! :)
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 all I've got for day two of our February SN previews... I hope you have enjoyed getting to know sweet Shroomie. And you would be nuts not to come back tomorrow for day three... see ya then!
