A bouquet full of candy...

Good morning! 

The summer sun is shining in Sweet November Land and all of those seeds that were planted back in the spring have been growing and thriving in the gardens. And I thought it would be fun to head back into those lush, green rows of growing things and visit the Garden Gnomes once again. These industrious little ladies have kept very busy coaxing and caring for each of their precious plants and with so much new activity I'm sure that we will be meeting a few new faces this time around.

After filling up on some delicious veggies yesterday it's time to mosey on over to the beds full of summer blooms and just enjoy the sweet scent floating in the breeze. It doesn't take long before we realize that the sway in some of those flowers can't be contributed to the wind. Instead, Gnome Myra is busily gathering up the freshest blossoms to give to the fairy tailors for this seasons gorgeous new gowns. She has a knack for picking the perfect bouquet each and every time and everyone loves Myra for that. So when she pulls a bundle of blooms from her wheelbarrow and hands them to you, you know it is a very special gift. 

As is the candy she has to share with one lucky lady, check it out...  
The Myra candy kit includes; one Sweet November Garden Gnome Myra rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Basic Grey Serendipity paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, yo-yos, 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, July 6th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, July 7th. And just so you know... all of the new July stamps will be available for purchase Thursday night at the ATS store.



Alrighty, now be sure to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs! The inspiration is positively in full bloom with Tress, Nancy, and Marion today! :)
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!

Thanks for stopping by for day two of our July SN previews... it has been a lovely day for a walk through the flowers, don't you think? Be sure to check back tomorrow to meet one final gnomie friend!

Aww, she's so sweet Amy. Love the wheelbarrow and that border on her apron. Sorry I haven't been visiting a lot lately, but I think I'm almost back on track. I even managed to finally create a card with that yummie release candy I won last October (Josie's Mistletoe).
