Harvesting some SN candy...

Hello everybody!
 

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.

It's hard to resist the pull of the vegetable patch with all those yummy edibles looking so fresh and delicious. I don't think I have ever seen tomatoes quite so red or peas quite so plump. And don't even get me started on the corn maze... a person could totally get lost in there. So you have to wonder how the little Garden Gnomes manage to find their way around, but they do. Miss Lucy is proof of that as she expertly harvests the ripe, golden corn kernel by kernel. She is so nimble and quick that it almost seems like magic... which, of course, there is no lack of in the Sweet November gardens. Lucy takes great pride in her prize winning veggies and she loves to share the abundant harvest with anyone who wanders by. So don't be surprised if she loads you up with an armful of goodies before we leave. ;) 

Oh, and Lucy may just slip some candy in there too, take a look-see..
The Lucy candy kit includes; one Sweet November Garden Gnome Lucy rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Basic Grey 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! Tress, Nancy, and Marion have gathered all of their creativity together 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!

Well, that's a wrap on day one of our July SN previews... I hope you have had fun meeting this new Sweet November cutie and come back tomorrow to see who else will be walking down the garden path!

Great job darling!

Marianne said...

Simply adorable Amy. Love the cute image and the fresh colours and those buttons and PP's are just wonderful. You always manage to find the most amazing papers. My attempt at a small vegetable plot in the garden failed miserably last year. I didn't have the stamina to try again this year. Maybe next year...
