A trio of Halloween pals

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...


As we trek deeper into the wood and the moon disappears behind a bank of clouds it's easy to feel a bit lost and unsure of the way back home. Luckily I can see a soft glow filtering through the trees guiding us forward. There in a small clearing sit three carved jack o'lanterns shining bright. And perched atop each one is a familiar face. These little characters are taking a break from hanging out with the witches, Hazel and Hilda, and instead they are sharing their spooktacular adventures with each other. Luna the owl is chuckling about the latest broom races while Vlad the bat is boasting about his recent batch of malevolent morsels being cooked up and Lucy the black cat is quite insistent that Hazel could use some flying lessons before she goes back up on a ride with her again. It's easy to get caught up in their chatter but as the first faint rays of dawn light the sky the trio of Halloween critters insist it is time for bed and we can finally see the way back home.

So it is time to say our goodbyes and grab some Halloween candy for the road... yum!    
The Three Pumpkins candy kit includes; one Sweet November Three Pumpkins set rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Spooked 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 tomorrow 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 tonight at the ATS store.


Alrighty, now be sure to visit the Sweet November Gal's blog! Nancy's creativity is lighting things up just like a jack o'lantern! :)

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 with that we have another Sweet November release in the books. It's a little spooky and a little crazy but isn't that what Halloween is all about? Thanks so much for joining in all the fun and don't forget to run on over to the ATS blog for even more chances to win today!
