Greetings and Felicitations...

It's that time of year again. Time to bundle up and travel back into the magical realm of Sweet Novemberland. There is a certain sense of serenity and peace in the cool, crisp air as we walk over the snow covered hills. And that warm glow of holiday happiness isn't just coming from the Yuletide sunshine... no, I suspect that this special trip will be bringing us into the company of some Sweet November Christmas Angels. 

Sure enough, I can spot a glow of light through the nearest tree break. As we draw closer it is easy to make out the sparkling glass panes of a gorgeously gilded greenhouse. And inside is the lovely angel Felicity surrounded by a sea of radiant poinsettias. Felicity is a Christmas Angel with a love of beautifying and decorating her surroundings for the holiday season. She positively radiates love and good cheer as she ushers us all inside to warm ourselves for a bit. It is a magical experience and when we finally have to get a move on Felicity insists that we each take a bit of the holiday with us in the form of a pot of her pretty poinsettias. 

And one lucky lady will also walk away with some special Christmas candy, take a look...    
The Felicity candy kit includes; one Sweet November Angel Felicity rubber stamp, eleven 6x6 sheets of Making Memories Noel paper, small Studio G acrylic sentiment stamps, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, poinsettia die cuts, 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, October 5th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, October 6th. And just so you know... all of the new October stamps will be available for purchase Friday at the ATS store.


Alrighty, now be sure to visit each of the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Marcy, Nancy and Marion have some heavenly inspiration to share with you all 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!

Thanks for joining us for day one of the Sweet November October release. Come back tomorrow to meet another new angelic friend and enter for another chance to win some crafty goodies. See ya then!
