Splish splashin' previews and 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. ;)

Taking a break from the great summer mermaid migration little Nami waves us over to the outcrop of beach rocks she has found to rest on. This is her first year being out of the clam shell nursery and she is so excited to be joining all of her big sisters on their trek through the oceans and seas. It has been a lot of swimming for this mini mermaid but she is loving every minute of this exciting adventure. As the sun rises higher into the clear blue sky Nami is feeling a bit parched so it is time for her to jump back into the salty waves. 

Before she swims back out into the big blue Nami shares some salt water candy for one lucky crafter, check it out...  

The mermaid Nami candy kit includes; one Sweet November Nami rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Echo Park Splash paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, stick pins, 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. 

Now swim on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs too!  Nancy and Tress will have you riding waves of creativity! :) 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! 

I hope you have enjoyed the first day of Sweet November July previews. We have even more mermaid fun in store tomorrow!
