Sweet lovebirds and some candy...

Hello all! 

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!

First up are the Lovebirds. This darling duo is spending Valentine's day all cuddled up in their favorite tree. And there is no other place that they would rather be than with each other. Together they sing sweet love songs that enchant anyone who happens by. And you just know that their favorite kind of Valentine candies are crafty candies which they want to share with one lucky stamper, check it out... 
  
The Lovebirds candy kit includes; one Sweet November Lovebirds rubber stamp, eleven 6x6 sheets of Glitz Hello Friend paper, small Studio G acrylic sentiment stamps, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, crinkled 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.

Now fly on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Nancy and Marion have made cards to get you completely twitterpated! :)

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 so much for checking out this first day of the Sweet November December release. I really hope that you have enjoyed our new lovey dovey side. ;)

Amy you continually blow me away with your awesome creativity. You not only draw the sweetest images but you tell us their story, then you color them up so perfectly that it helps us to color them ourselves. Then you take images and alter them in ways that totally transforms them into something new. Thank you.
