Be good for goodness sake...

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. :)

So once Chrissy has wrapped the gifts it is time for Nicholas to help load them onto Santa's sleigh. He's a busy pixie making sure that not a single present gets left behind because he can't even imagine the disappointment that would bring to some good girl or boy. It's quite the responsibility to have, but Nicholas wouldn't have it any other way. Large or small each gift is carefully placed in Santa's magic bag ready for the midnight ride. And the big guy himself couldn't be happier with his new little helper which puts a huge smile on Nicholas' face.

And you know what puts a smile on my face? Some sweet Christmas candy to share...   
The Nicholas candy kit includes; one Sweet November Christmas Pixie Nicholas rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Echo Park This & That Christmas paper, small Studio G acrylic sentiment stamps, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, wood veneer stars, 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.

Now you'll want to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Nancy and Marion have this little guy all wrapped up! :)

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 five of the Sweet November November release. We've got one last little pixie to meet tomorrow so come back then and enter for one more chance to win some crafty goodies. Toodles!

Oh dear, Nicholas, you're never going to win the "cute" race against Rudy if you don't even wear a hat!

I like how you've used the striped paper to go with his striped stockings and shirt. Also, I now have "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" in my head, and I have the horrible suspicion that it's not going to leave...
