Candy fit for a princess...

Hello and welcome to day one of the June Sweet November previews!

It's that time of month when we leave the everyday behind and step into the magical world of Sweet November land. And this time we are not the only visitors to frolic in the forest glens and converse with all the whimsical characters that call Sweet November Land home... this month there are little princesses to be found there as well!

Walking through a meadow of early summer flowers positively bursting with color we meet the demure Princess Gwendolyn. If we promise not to snitch, Gwendolyn will share her secret with us... early this morning she sneaked out of her parent's castle to come in search of fairies. So far she has only found butterflies to chase but with all of the magical tales she has been told she just knows a fairy has got to be out here somewhere. We tell her not to give up hope because we have met a few fairies here ourselves. Gwendolyn's eyes light up and she insists that we tell her all about our past enchanted encounters. So we settle down in the sweet grass and spend a lovely afternoon sharing stories with this sweet little princess who is hanging on our every word. And as the fairy stories continue our audience grows to include some of the very winged friends that we are talking about. Once we are finished we tell Gwendolyn to look closely at the daisy beside her and she squeals with delight when a tiny Fairwee waves and says hello. 

This little princess is so happy to have finally found the fairies that she has some special candy to share. Take a look...   
The Gwendolyn candy kit includes; one Sweet November Princess Gwendolyn rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Basic Grey Euphoria paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, flower jewels,butterfly sequins, 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, June 7th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, June 8th. 

Now be sure to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs as well! Tress and Nancy have created some royally cute cards 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!
