Skies the limit for some candy!

With the warmth and sunshine of May finally upon us it's the ideal time to once again set off for the magical borders of Sweet November Land. The air is positively abuzz with activity and movement and it seems like every living creature in SN Land is on the go. Hopefully we will be able to find a Fairwee or two to chat with amidst all the hustle and bustle of spring fever.

As fun as it was to ride the wild butterflies I sort of expected Daphne to work her magic again and get us all back to our normal size. So it's a bit unsettling when she eventually flies off with a wave and a wink. Being the size of a dime takes some getting used to and I just hope we can safely maneuver this newly intimidating landscape. Too bad we didn't wish for wings as well, it would be very handy to be able to get an aerial view of our surroundings now that the butterflies have all flown off. Wait a sec, what is that floating over the horizon? Why it looks like a hot air balloon. Oh wow! It's not just one balloon but a whole armada filling the sky with their bright and happy colors. The first one to land before us is manned by Fairwee Emaline and she is so excited to see us in our newly shortened state. When we explain our predicament Emaline is quick to offer all of us rides on the hot air balloons as an easy and fantastic way to get to a safer location. As we take off up into the sky the views are just fantastic and Emaline explains that she enjoys the balloon rides from time to time because the slower pace allows for you to really appreciate the beauty all around instead of just quickly flying by without a second look... how true that is. 

There is also some fabulous candy to enjoy during this hot air outing, check it out...    
The Emaline's Hot Air Balloon candy kit includes; one Sweet November Emaline's Hot Air Balloon rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Echo Park A Perfect Summer paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, washi tape,Freckled Fawn wood veneer shapes, 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, May 10th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, May 11th. 

Now fly on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs too!  Nancy and Tress will leave you floating in the clouds with their creativity! :) 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 gals on their blogs, you will get extra names in the hat... this will up your chances of winning the candy. Fun, fun, fun! 
I hope you have enjoyed day two of the Sweet November May release. We have even more Fairwee fun in store tomorrow!
