Monster madness and some candy!

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 the spooky forest behind us the simple path below our feet gradually turns into a clearly defined road. Do we follow where it leads or make our own way into the unknown murky surroundings? At this time of night I'm thinking we should stay on the road and see where it takes us. Before long we crest a small hill and find ourselves looking out over a quirky little town full of colorful houses and crooked roads weaving through them. We decide to take a look around the odd little neighborhoods and the first inhabitant that we meet is a green monster in a flashy orange and purple suit. He introduces himself as Frankie and asks us if we are there for the annual Monster Mash party. We tell him that we didn't know about a party but it sure sounds like fun. Frankie excitedly recounts all of the highlights from past Mashes and the more he goes on about bat's eye punch, tongue of newt poppers, and electrode boogaloo the more hesitant we are about actually attending. So when a hearse pulls up offering a ride, Frankie jumps in but we suddenly remember a very important appointment that we forgot about until just this moment. He's disappointed to hear that but encourages us to stop by the festivities if our appointment runs short. 

And before he leaves Frankie pulls out some special Halloween candy to share... check it out...      

The Frankie candy kit includes; one Sweet November Frankie rubber stamp, eleven 6x6 sheets of Doodlebug Halloween Parade paper, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Doodlepop stickers, 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, August 2nd and I will announce the winners on Saturday, August 3rd. 

Now you'll want to shuffle on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs where Nancy and Tress have got some real monster mash bashes going on! :) 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! 

Thanks for joining us on this second day of Sweet November August previews. The monster mash continues tomorrow so don't miss that!
