A gift of crafty candy...

This Christmas season the Sweet November Pixies thought it would be fun to take a trip up north... way north! Apparently Santa's elves needed a few helping hands in the workshop and the Pixies were only too happy to add some of their magic to the preparations. So if we want to visit them it looks like we'll have to hop a sleigh to the North Pole as well. Bundle up, it's going to be a chilly ride. :)

Wandering past the bustling activity of elves busy making all sorts of toys in the massive workshop we find ourselves in the wrapping rooms. It's here that we run into Pixie Chrissy who is busy herself with preparing those toys for Santa's upcoming ride. She loves wrapping the gifts in all sorts of pretty papers and she is an expert at curling ribbon and tying bows faster than anyone else. Chrissy has a tendency to sing Christmas tunes while she works which everyone quite enjoys and it is hard to resist joining in too. Before we know it, the entire wrapping room is singing a lively rendition of 'Up on the Rooftop'... so much fun!

And while Chrissy says that we have to wait 'til Christmas to get our presents she does have some crafty candy to share...   
The Chrissy candy kit includes; one Sweet November Christmas Pixie Chrissy rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of October Afternoon Holiday Style paper, small Studio G acrylic sentiment stamps, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, paper doily, stick pins, 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 candy will stay open through Friday, November 2nd and I will announce the winners on Saturday, November 3rd.

Don't forget to take a look-see at the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Nancy and Marion are sharing their creative gifts with the world! :)

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 joining us for day four of the Sweet November November release. We're over half way through the previews so you'll want to come back tomorrow to meet another new Christmas Pixie and enter for another chance to win some crafty goodies. XOXO

You've certainly been busy, Amy. I really thought this would be the last of the previews...
As for sweet pixie Chrissy, can she please come and visit me some time? She sounds (and looks) like a fun girl/pixie to have around. Maybe we could do some singing together and she could show me how to make pretty bows LOL.
