It's time to make a side trip back into the deep, dark twisty woods just beyond Sweet November Land. There we will find the place of haunted houses, creepy castles and mad scientist labs galore. This spooky village is inhabited year round by a host of quirky characters that are both a little sweet and a little sour. The only time that they venture out into our world is on that one special night of October 31st. It is then that they can blend in with the crowds of innocent trick-or-treaters and play mischief on all they meet.
So light up a jack o' lantern and hold it high as we cautiously trek into the woods to see who we can find...
As we leave Spookville behind us and travel back through the dark woods on our way home, a small, lonely cottage catches our eye. After all we've been through perhaps we should avoid this mysterious abode. But as we walk past a low window a pair of curious eyes peek out at us and a tentative meow can be heard. Drawn in to investigate we stumble on quite the scene... it appears to be a witch's cottage and she has left her kitten, Midnight, all alone for the evening. In her absence Midnight has been a very mischievous kitty, from the look of things he has been playing in the cauldron and spilling potions all over the floor. Then he must have let all the toads escape on his way to batting around the black widows in the corner. Finally, after leaving all that mayhem in his wake, Midnight has tired himself out and finds an extra hat to snuggle down on for a quick cat nap. Awww... how cute! But wait, I doubt the witch will be very happy when she returns and finds her cottage all in a shambles and I certainly don't want her to blame us for the destruction! We had best hurry back on our way before we find ourselves turned into one of those critters that Midnight enjoys toying with so much.
And while we may not be to blame for all that mischief, I did snag some Midnight candy to share with one lucky stamper... check it out...
The Midnight's Mischief candy kit includes; one Sweet November Midnight's Mischief
rubber stamp set, ten 6x6 sheets of October Afternoon Witch Hazel paper, Prima
flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Studio Calico wood veneer stars, star stick pins, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
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, August 2nd and I will announce
the winners on Saturday, August 3rd.
The Sweet November Gals, Nancy
and Tress, have been creating some mischief of their own that you won't want to miss! :)
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!
