Sunny with a chance of candy showers

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.

Wow! What a treat that surprise party was yesterday. I sure hope that we have more of that to look forward to today. Unfortunately as we make our way into the Fairwee Glen a spring rain is pouring down and it is hard not to feel like a damper has been put on the day. But before we turn around and head for home a little blossom appears to be bobbing its way down the lane. Upon closer inspection that flower is actually being used as an umbrella by none other than Fairwee Josie. Despite the rain she seems to be having a wonderful time, hopping and skipping amongst the puddles. Josie insists that we join her and once we let go of our initial hesitation and start dancing in the rain the entire day brightens. I'm not sure if it is a simple turn in the weather or a bit of Fairwee magic but the skies eventually clear and we are all left a bit soaked but exuberant. The sun quickly dries us and Josie reveals a special picnic that she has put together for the occasion... complete with Fairwee candy. Check it out...  

 
The Josie's Brella candy kit includes; one Sweet November Josie's Brella rubber stamp set, ten 6x6 sheets of Pebbles Family Ties paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Studio Calico wood veneer birds, 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.

Now fly on over to the Sweet November Gal's blog! Nancy will have you strolling through the garden come rain or shine! :)
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 for checking out the second day of the Sweet November April release. Come back tomorrow for one more Fairwee sneak peek!

I'd recognise sweet Josie's face anywhere. She was my favourite Christmas fairwee (I actually won the Josie's Mistletoe candy) and Josie's Brella is just as adorable! Love your card, too!
