Candy in bloom

Hola!

Spring in Sweet November Land is a magical time of year. Sure, there is lots of play and good times to be had but there is also plenty of work to be done as well. And I know a few industrious denizens who love nothing more than to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. Perhaps you will join me on a stroll down the garden path to meet these charming characters?


As we make our way deeper into the immaculate gardens of Sweet November Land it is easy to see that the little sprouts have recently gotten a cool drink of water. And it is Garden Gnome Elsie with her magic silver watering can who makes sure that none of her precious plants go thirsty. And she always has a song to sing while she goes from row to row because Elsie knows that the sweet sounds help the sprouts to grow just as much as the water does.

I don't know about you but all of this watering is making me thirsty... and hungry for some candy...   
The Elsie candy kit includes; one Sweet November Garden Gnome Elsie rubber stamp, twelve 6x6 sheets of Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, mini doilies, wood veneer 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 Friday, May 4th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, May 5th. And just so you know... all of the new May stamps will be available for purchase Thursday night at the ATS store.


Don't forget to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs now! Kadie, Nancy, and Marion are pouring on the inspiration! :)
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!

That's all I've got for day two of our May SN previews... be sure to come back tomorrow for the third and final day of gardening goodness!
And over on the ATS blog today there is a brand new range of stamps being debuted by a brand new artist so hop on over there and take a look. :)

gobeagirl said...

Amy you always amaze me when you bring out new stamp sets. I am always waiting most patiently to see what you have come up with and I have to tell your that your little ladies are all just too cute! Elsie makes me think of when I was little and we would go to Grandma's house. She had this hugh metal watering can that both my sister and I were allowed to carry around and help her to water everything including ourselves. lol.. Your little butterflies and your papers are all just perfect for this little lady. Hugs, Lisa
