Tricks and treats and 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...


Even though we got out of going to that questionable Monster Mash party we still find ourselves exploring the crooked streets of Spookville. Down dark lanes and eerie alleyways, it seems as if every step we take is being watched by strange eyes. Before we know it everything seems turned around and we find ourselves completely lost. Lucky for us a small green monster comes bouncing out of the shadows and introduces herself as Frannie. She exclaims with delight at the sight of us and explains that she has been looking for our group ever since her boyfriend Frankie mentioned running into some crazy crafters. It isn't every day that Spookville gets visitors so she just had to see us for herself. Frannie doesn't know quite what to make of us but when we ask for her help she is happy to oblige. She quickly leads us through the winding streets until we are back on the edge of that now familiar forest. Frannie asks if we truly have to leave so soon... there is a great after party later in the evening with all sorts of shenanigans planned. But if we want to make it back home before dawn we really should get moving. 
So we thank Frannie for her help and in turn she has some candy to share with us... take a look...     
The Frannie candy kit includes; one Sweet November Frannie rubber stamp, eleven 6x6 sheets of Doodlebug Halloween Parade paper, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Studio G stamp set, 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. 

Don't forget to take a look at the Sweet November Gals' blogs today, Nancy and Tress have got some frightfully fantastic cards to share! :) 
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! 

That's it for day three of the Sweet November August previews. There is one more day of previews left and we've got a very mischievous little character to introduce to you then so don't miss out!
