Joy filled holiday candy!

The October Sweet November previews are upon us but instead of visiting Sweet November Land let's take a trip up to the North Pole. 
While Santa is in the workshop overseeing toy production for the upcoming holiday season, Mrs. Claus is busy baking up all sorts of sweet treats in the kitchen. And she's not alone, she's got help from Gingy, the sweet little gingerbread man brought to life by Christmas magic. Gingy is an artiste when it comes to decorating all of the treats and delicacies that Mrs. Claus whips up. Today he is using candy canes to make a heart pattern on his fancy gingerbread house. It's Gingy's way to represent the love that is the spirit of the season.

And to spread that love Gingy has some Christmas candy to share with one lucky crafter, take a look...    
The Gingy Candy Cane Love candy kit includes; one Sweet November Gingy Candy Cane Love rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of Heidi Swapp Believe paper, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, glitter pillow heart stickers, 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, October 4th and I will announce the winner on Saturday, October 5th. 

Be sure to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs next. Nancy and Tress have been busy in the kitchen whipping up some super sweet Christmas cards! :) 
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 this first day of Sweet November October previews. We have even more Christmas kitchen fun in store tomorrow! !

Oh, I LOVE that little Gingy stamp! When I was little, my favorite story was "The Gingerbread Man". I still have my book, but it's falling apart because it's been so loved! I used to read it to my boys when they were little, too.
Such a cute card ~ that would be perfect for my Christmas cards this year!
Thanks so much for the chance to win this little guy with all the accessories! Keeping my fingers crossed!
