Soaring by with 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.

Luckily it isn't long before one of our wee friends is spotted flying by on the back of a wild butterfly. It's little miss Daphne and she is having a blast riding on the spring breeze, up and down to and fro. I'm a bit envious of that freedom and sheer abandon, if only we could shrink down to Fairwee size and join the fun. When Daphne and her butterfly friend finally stop for a breather we can't resist expressing that wish. She seems to ponder an idea for a moment and then she whispers into the butterfly's ear. With a wink and a giggle they take off and start circling above our heads. Daphne sprinkles some sort of fairy dust onto us and a strange sensation runs through our bodies. At first it seems that the trees and flowers are growing larger until we realize that our wish is coming true and we are getting smaller! Before we know it Daphne is calling for more butterflies and we are joining our tiny friend on a roller coaster ride across the sky... WOW! The excitement of this magical afternoon will not be soon forgotten. 

And if that wasn't enough, Daphne also has a bit of high flying candy to share with one lucky crafter. Take a look...    
The Daphne's Ride candy kit includes; one Sweet November Daphne's Ride rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Doodlebug Flower Box paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, washi tape, Studio Calico wood veneer butterfly, 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 be sure to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs too! I am thrilled to introduce Tress as the newest SN Gal and she and Nancy are both flying high today! :) 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 there blogs, you will get extra names in the hat... this will up your chances of winning the candy. Fun, fun, fun!
