Happy, happy, joy, joy!

Good morning!

This Sweet November March preview is a small one where will be catching up with a couple of the different collections and adding some new friends to the fun. :)

It's been awhile, but it is high time that we mosey on over to the home of the sprites in Sweet November Land and find out what little miss Penelope has been up to since last we met. Apparently she was snowed in for most of the winter and has only recently been able to get out and enjoy the fresh spring air. And who is that excitable fellow whizzing around in daring loop-d-loops high above? Why, it's Zip the dragonfly! He has been waiting for the day he could spread his wings and buzz around without fear of any frostbite so no wonder he's so happy. And Penelope quite enjoys the aerial show that he is putting on for all of us too. :)

Of course there is some sweet spring candy from these two, take a look-see...

The Penelope and Zip candy kit includes; one Sweet November Penelope and Zip rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of American Crafts Dear Lizzy paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, paper doilies, 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, March 9th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, March 10th. And just so you know... all of the new March stamps will be available for purchase on Friday at the ATS store.

My good blogging friend, Lisa Gobea, is reprising her role as SN Guest Gal this month to help showcase our little March release. So be sure to zip over to see what Lisa, Nancy, and Marion have done with this cheery spring duo! :)
As always, 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 was certainly a quick wrap up on our previews but even if it is a small release I hope that you have enjoyed these new stamps. And don't forget to visit the ATS blog today for another chance to get entered to win the March Sweet November stamps!
Good luck and thanks for visiting!
