We're spicing things up at Sweet November

Hi friends!

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

So who doesn't remember the first two Spice Fairies that we've met over the years in Sweet November Land? First there was Ginger, with her long flowing hair. Then there was the serene Coriander. And now we finally get to know a third little Spice Fairy and she is ready to add a dash of laughter and a sprinkle of mischief to everything that she touches. Please say hello to Paprika!
Paprika is a lovely fairy but don't let her sweetness and charm fool you... she is quite playful and rather inclined to playing tricks on us humans. Still, even after she has hidden away your keys or changed all of the ringtones on your cell phone to the Geico 'weeeeee' pig, Paprika always manages to win you over with a giggle and a bat of her shimmering eyelashes. :)

Offering up some sweet candy sure doesn't hurt either, check it out!
And for more Paprika fun, I've also got a couple of coloring videos featuring this new fairy which can be found here and here or on the CMC blog.

The Paprika candy kit includes; one Sweet November Paprika rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart paper, small Imaginisce acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, paper doilies, Maya Road stick pin, 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 hop on over to see what Lisa, Nancy, and Marion have each created with this spicy little fairy! :)
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!


Alrighty, don't forget to come back tomorrow to see what other new stamp will be joining the Sweet November line up. She's a familiar face that we haven't seen around for awhile but is just as cute and cheery as ever!
