Big time birthday wishes and circus candy!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... welcome to the Sweet November Circus! If you would direct your attention to the center ring you'll find the ringmaster for today's events, Big Top Bailey. As always she is joined by her chimp chum, Barney, who is quite the little show stealing acrobat with his hoops and high wire act. Together this pair of exuberant revelers will show you all sorts of daring feats and memorable characters who are sure to astound and amaze! The first act that Bailey introduces to the tent is everyone's favorite... the baby elephant walk! Leading off these darling pachyderms on the march is Ellie and she is proudly trumpeting their procession through the rings. When she makes her way over to you in the stands be sure to have a peanut ready because they are her favorite treat. :)

Now, one lucky circus goer will be leaving here with some fantastic circus candy... take a look... 
 
The Big Top candy kit includes; one Sweet November Big Top Bailey and Ellie rubber stamp set, ten 8x8 sheets of October Afternoon Midway paper, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, star 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, September 6th and I will announce the winner on Saturday, September 7th. 

Be sure to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs next. Nancy and Tress have both created quite a show beneath the big top that will have you craving the peanuts and popcorn! :) 
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 know it is weird having a one and done SN preview around here but there it is. Of course there are more Sweet November circus cards to be seen on the CC Designs blog today with another chance to win these new stamps so head on over and check it out!
