A banner day for candy!

It's a beautiful day to head back into Sweet November Land don'tcha think? The sun is shining and there is a sense of excitement in the air that makes the trek hard to resist. But who should we visit this time? With so many SN friends it can be hard to choose, though something tells me those crazy Fairwees are having all sorts of fun right now.

As we come upon the Fairwee glen it's not hard to tell that some kind of big celebration is in the works. There are colorful banners strung from one end of the clearing to the other and there are two little fairwees busy working to hang even more. After Piper and Mia get the last one placed so that the frilly pennants dance prettily in the breeze they turn to give us a happy hello. It's like no time has passed as these two chatter away, quickly getting us caught up on all of the goings on since our last visit. When we finally get a chance to ask what all of the pretty decorations are for, Mia gives Piper a sideways glance and a giggle before they both declare in unison that it is for the celebration of our return to Sweet November Land! How they knew when to expect us can only be chalked up to their special fairwee magic. So rather than waste time trying to figure it all out, let's just settle in and enjoy the party that these two have prepared. You know they have some of the best candy around... take a look...       
The Banner Day candy kit includes; one Sweet November Piper and Mia's Banner Day rubber stamp set, ten 6x6 sheets of Basic Grey Shine On paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Basic Grey flags, 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, April 5th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, March 6th.

Be sure to check out the Sweet November Gal's blog too! Nancy has quite the Fairwee party going on that you simply can't miss! :)
Instead of using random generator I will be printing out names and tossing them in a hat SO if you leave a comment for the SN gal on her blog, you will get an extra name in the hat... 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 April release. Come back tomorrow for more Fairwee fun!
