Red, white and blue candy for you...

Good morning!

It's summer in Sweet November Land and there is always a lot of celebration going on this time of year. Who doesn't love long sunny days and warm starry nights? Especially if those nights are lit up by the bright sparkling lights of magic infused fireworks. :)
Patriotic Pixie Betsy shines as brightly as the sparklers that she loves to twirl and spin. It's easy to mistake her for a firefly at times but she takes that as a compliment. The way that Betsy dances across the meadow all nimble and quick turns each of her movements into a mini light show that is a joy to behold.

So just sit back and take it all in while you enjoy some of her candy too... 
The Betsy candy kit includes; one Sweet November Patriotic Pixie Betsy rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Scenic Route paper, small Basic Grey acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, wood veneer stars, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
Betsy has help when it comes to aerial displays in Sweet November Land and that is where her BFF Patti soars onto the scene. Pixie Patti's fireworks fly higher and sparkle and shine longer than anyone else's. Her magic touch creates colors and images in each burst of light that will leave you oohing and ahhing, never wanting the show to end. As entertaining as her shows are, Patti is always coming up with new ideas and trying to outdo herself with each burst of light. 

Patti's candy is pretty special too, take a look... 

The Patti candy kit includes; one Sweet November Patriotic Pixie Patti rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Scenic Route paper, small Daisy Bucket acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, wood veneer stars, 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 tomorrow, Friday, June 8th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, June 9th. And just so you know... all of the new June stamps will be available for purchase tonight at the ATS store.


Now be sure to soar on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs. Erin and Nancy are both going to light your firecrackers with their fab cards!  :)

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! :)

And that, my friends, is a wrap on the June Sweet November previews... but there is still one more chance to win these new cuties just by heading over to the SN previews on the ATS blog today! Thanks so much for joining us this past week for all of the new release excitement!

Hi Amy,
I know I have told you a million times, but I think it is worth saying again. You are so so talented and I think that both these cuties are just adorable and I can just see them sitting on a party table with name cards for the 4th of July. :O) I love that you named her Betty. I couldn't think of a better name for a patriot little girl like her. I love your wooden stars that you have used as well. I ran into all those wonderful wooden accents when we went on our big shopping trip last month, but I had spent my budget by them. Next time! lol... I also love how Patti gets to be her very own fireworks. She just screams celebration and I think it's just adorable. I hope all is going well for you and your family. I will talk to you later. Hugs, Lisa

angie ashuk said...

I'm Canadian, so I don't celebrate the $th of July, but I would love to get one of those cards!!

Tress said...

Too cute, too cute, too cute!!! And your coloring of the images makes them all the the more special. I think little Miss Betsy is my favorite. I remember wearing an outfit very similar to hers back in the early 70's! The shorts had a false skirt front. Ahhhh...the memories of summers past.

Betsy said...

Oh my goodness ... I need Pixie Betsy since she shares my name!!! She reminds me of myself when I was little ~ my parents would always buy me a box of sparklers for the Fourth of July, and it was all I could do to wait until dark to light them! Such fun memories!!
Thanks so much for the chance to win!!! Keeping my fingers crossed!
