Just keep swimming for some candy...

It has been quite some time since we have made our way to the sandy shores of Sweet November Land. Now that the long, hot days of summer are upon us the conditions are once again perfect for a mermaid sighting or two. ;)

Unlike her sisters, Hanalei is a bit nervous about going to the surface for the very first time. Up until now all she has known is the calm, gentle swaying of the kelp beds and the lazy currents around the clam shell nursery where she has grown up. Finding herself on her first big adventure up to the surface she's not sure whether she likes all the hustle and bustle of topside activities. With a bit of coaxing from us and the reassurance of a friendly pair of sea turtles little Hanalei finds the courage to leave her comfort zone and explore new horizons. Before long she can't even remember what she was so scared of as she plays in the surf with Nami, Nalu and all of her new found friends. 

And wouldn't you know Hanalei has brought some candy with her to share with one lucky crafter, take a peek...    
The mermaid Hanalei candy kit includes; one Sweet November Hanalei rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of BoBunny Barefoot and Bliss paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, washi tape, 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, July 5th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, July 6th. 

Take a minute to float on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs next!  Nancy and Tress have really brought shy little Hanalei to life on their fantastic cards! :) 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! 

And that, my friends, wraps up the Sweet November July previews. Thanks so much for stopping by each day to welcome these new mermaids into the Sweet November family. If you want even more chances of winning these cuties don't forget to check out the CC Designs blog which is also featuring the SN Mermaid set in the preview today. 
Good luck!

Hi Amy, I don't have my glasses on, so if something looks weird please forgive me. lol... I just love little Hanalei, she is just adorable! I love her shy little look she has as well, and of course you really can't go wrong with that orange hair of hers. Totally adorable! :O) I also love the title you have used. Is that a preprinted sentiment or did you make that? Cute!!! Hugs Lisa
