It's naptime in Sweet November...

So today we are actually going to travel into the world of Sweet November land to see what a magical fairy nursery is like. It's hidden away in the most lovely little garden on the edge of the misty meadows where the bumble bees act as nursemaids to their precious charges. 
In the beds of roses bushes there are wee baby fairies tucked away in the leaves. Each one wrapped tight in gossamer swaddling. Over in the walnut grove the squirrels are rocking the baby fairies to sleep in their half shell cradles while the birds up above sing lilting lullabies. And over in the wild flower field where the sweet peas climb an old stone wall, you can spy fairy babies bobbing and swaying in the pea pods as a gentle breeze passes by. They are all so tiny and completely adorable, it's hard to resist the temptation of putting one in your pocket to take home. But those bumble bee nursemaids look as if they would give us a sting or two if we tried, so instead we will just have to be content with one lucky gal taking home a bit of fairy candy instead... take a look...      

The Sleeping Baby Fairies candy kit includes; one Sweet November Sleeping Baby Fairies rubber stamp set, ten 6x6 sheets of Bazzill Vintage Marketplace paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, ribbon roses, paper doilies, 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, January 4th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, January 5th.

Don't forget to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Nancy and Marion have created precious cards to get you cootchie cooing! :)

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!

And that wraps things up here for the Sweet November January release. Be sure to head on over to the ATS blog for even more Sweet November sneak peeks and chances to win. Then be watching the store for all of the new January stamps to hit the shelves Thursday night!

Amy all three of your cards are just so sweet. I love the first one very much. It looks so much like Maddie's cover to her baby book. I think your coloring is just divine on all three of these cards, and I think all three of your fairy babies are just so sweet you can just smell the baby powder in the air. :O) I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.
