Dreaming of wings and candy...

Spring is in full swing within magical Sweet November Land. The flowers are blooming and the air is positively buzzing with the sounds of all the critters returning to full activity after their winter hibernation. It's such a beautiful day that it would be a shame not to visit and meet who is responsible for helping this spring awakening along.

It has been such a fun and exciting visit to the spring meadows of Sweet November Land that it seems a shame to have to leave. As we make our way back home there appears to be one dark cloud on this sunny day. Sitting on a nearby mushroom is a pixie looking quite forlorn. When we stop to see what is the matter, little Maribelle explains that she has been watching all the fun that the bu'fly fairies are having and she wished that she had beautiful wings just like theirs. But being a pixie Maribelle has no such wings to be proud of. What do you do for such a sad little pixie? Luckily the bu'flies have heard Maribelle's wish and all four are coming together to help their friend. Like a flash they dash into the tall flowers gathering various petals and leaves and then with a bit of magic they manage to fashion a beautiful pair of wings that Maribelle can call her own. When they present their gift, Maribelle can't contain her excitement and gratitude... she immediately puts on her new wings and proceeds to jump and skip and spin about hugging her new friends at every turn. What a high note to end this visit on and if that wasn't enough, there is also a bit of candy for us as we take out leave... check it out...         
The Pixie Maribelle candy kit includes; one Sweet November Pixie Maribelle rubber stamp set, twelve 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Happy Day paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, punched butterflies, washi tape, 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, March 8th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, March 9th.

Now hop on over to the Sweet November Gal's blog! Nancy's creativity will leave you all a flutter! :)
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 gal on her blog, 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, my friends, wraps up the Sweet November March previews. Thanks so much for stopping by each day and letting us know what you think of these new additions.
Sweet November previews can also be found over on the ATS blog today with even more chances to win. And you don't have to wait until Thursday to purchase the new stamps, they are all available now in the ATS store! :)
