Gnome Gertie has some candy

Hello friends!
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.
 
Our final stop on the tour through the Sweet November gardens brings us to the crystal greenhouses. That is where we find little Gertie who is in charge of choosing the most prized plants from this year's harvest and collecting the seeds to start the process all over again. She loves to putter about, transplanting seedlings and sprouts from pot to pot. For Gertie in those greenhouses it always feels like summer no matter what time of year that it is. 
 
And if you are interested in a bit of greenhouse candy just take a look... 
The Gertie candy kit includes; one Sweet November Garden Gnome Gertie rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Simple Stories Summer Fresh 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 tonight at the ATS store.


Now take a minute to hop on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs!  Tress, Nancy, and Marion have created a veritable garden of inspiration to delight you with! :)
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!

Well, another SN release is in the books and I hope you have enjoyed it. Thanks so much for visiting each day and be sure to check out the ATS blog today for even more Sweet November previews and chances to win!

Lindsay said...

I just adore this image, love those little tendrils of hair poking out from her hat.

gobeagirl said...

Amy, this is so sweet! Love the denim that you used behind her. Cute idea for such a cute little gal out working in the yard. I think I will picture you taking care of your flowers when I see her. lol.. You are much more the gardner that I will ever be. I love a perfect yard and flower beds full of bark so that when you water it just smells so GOOD... But I do not like making it look that way. I would rather clean the inside of the house than do that. lol... I am praying all is well. Hugs, Lisa G
