Lovebugs love candy!

Good morning!

Even though we are smack dab in the midst of Christmas holiday festivities, this month's Sweet November stamp release is looking ahead to Valentine's Day. We've got cute new images to help make it a very happy heart day indeed!

Today is all about the Lovebug Fun set that features three adorable lovebugs, each one celebrating February 14th in their own special way. The first little bug has taken a seat upon a conversation candy heart to help spread his message of love. Our second buggy friend doesn't have as much self control when it comes to sugary sweets. She had every intention of sharing her box of Valentine chocolates but those bonbons proved too much of a temptation. And finally the third lovebug is busy creating a handmade Valentine for a very special friend. He has picked the perfect red crayon from the box and is taking great care to draw the perfect heart to help express all of the love he has to give. Together this trio will make you smitten to be bitten by the lovebugs. :)

And luckily for one stamper they have left a wee bit of candy to share, take a look...  
The Lovebugs candy kit includes; one Sweet November Lovebug Fun rubber stamp set, eleven 6x6 sheets of Doodlebug paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, doilies, heart 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, December 7th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, December 8th.

There is quite the buzz on the Sweet November Gals' blogs today! Nancy and Marion have both been bitten by the lovebugs! :)
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!

Well, that wraps up our short and sweet Sweet November December release. I really hope that you have enjoyed checking out these new Valentine's images. And don't forget to head on over to the ATS blog for all kinds of SN inspiration and even more chances to win!
