Soaring high on All Hallows Eve

Hey guys... what do you say we make a quick jaunt back through that deep, dark and twisty wood just beyond Sweet November Land? Back to the place where we will find haunted houses, creepy castles and mad scientist labs galore. That spooky village is still inhabited year round by a host of quirky characters that are both a little sweet and a little sour. The only time that they venture out into our world is on that one special night of October 31st. It is then that they can blend in with the crowds of innocent trick-or-treaters and play mischief on all they meet.
So light up a jack o' lantern and hold it high as we cautiously trek on into the woods to see who we can find...

After all of our close calls and adventures last year it's best that we not linger overlong because that howling wind isn't the only thing giving me the chills. This night is bright, illuminated by a round full moon and countless twinkling stars and the shadows that they throw are making me just a bit jumpy. Wait! Do you hear that eerie 'OoooOoooOoooh' coming up from high in the sky? Could it be a ghost? Oh no! It's that wide eyed Witch Hazel again and this time around it looks like she is having a major broom malfunction during her midnight ride. Her black cat, Lucy, seems to be keeping her cool though it is all Hazel can do to hold on to her hat! 
Something tells me that the embarrassment this crazy little witch will feel if she knows that we have witnessed her less than graceful flying skills will only lead to some wild spell casting and a toad transformation or two. So we best keep moving while she is still distracted. ;)

Ooh, it looks like Hazel has dropped some candy in all of the commotion, check it out...

The Hazel and Lucy candy kit includes; one Sweet November Hazel and Lucy rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of paper, small Studio G acrylic sentiment stamps, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Rock Candy stickles, 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, August 3rd and I will announce the winners on Saturday, August 4th. And just so you know... all of the new August stamps will be available for purchase Thursday night at the ATS store.



Alrighty, now be sure to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Nancy, and Marion both have some high flying fun going on 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!

That wraps up day one of our August SN previews... I hope you have had a fun little fright meeting this new Sweet November witch. Be sure to come back tomorrow to see who else will be creepin' up on us!
