Soaring into sneaks 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.

As we walk amidst the riot of colorful blooms in the never ending garden it's hard not to dance and skip about a bit. Especially when that is exactly what the butterflies appear to be doing as they flutter past us. Wait! That wasn't a butterfly... that was a bu'fly fairy! She swoops and spins closer, her big colorful wings sparkling behind her. She introduces herself as Bree and welcomes us to her part of the garden. Currently Bree is busy coaxing the ladybugs out into the sunshine which she does with a happy song and dance. It's amazing to watch as hundreds of tiny red lady bugs appear and follow her every move until all at once they take to the skies and disperse amongst the flowers. What a show that was! And with a giggle and a smile Bree has a bit of candy to offer up to one lucky visitor to make the day even brighter... take a look... 

 
The Bu'fly Bree candy kit includes; one Sweet November Bu'fly Bree rubber stamp set, twelve 6x6 sheets of My Mind's Eye Everyday Flair paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, epoxy ladybugs, 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.

Don't forget to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Nancy and Marion will have you flying high with inspiration today! :)
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 joining us on this first day of the Sweet November March release. Come back tomorrow to meet another bright and happy little bu'fly!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but sometimes life simply gets in the way, as you well know.
As soon as I started reading your post I could hear the birds singing out in the garden, heralding Spring.
Love sweet little Bree and I love how she's about to land on that sentiment strip to have a chat with the ladybird and flowers.
