Christmas mischief and some candy!

Up at the North Pole in Santa's Christmas village, Mrs. Claus has a new furry friend to keep her company during Santa's busy day away. It may seem strange to name a snow white kitten Midnight, but being at the top of the world they see their share of midnight sunshine and Mrs. Claus has always had a sense of humor. And Midnight is quite mischievous, keeping Mrs. Claus and all those elves on their toes. 

They can't forget to hang the fragile glass ornaments higher on the trees otherwise Midnight is right there to bat and swat at the entertaining baubles until they fall and break. Oh and don't' even think about leaving wrapped packages out before Christmas eve because Midnight will waste no time tearing into those pretty papers just to play with the ribbons and hide inside the boxes. When she works up an appetite, Midnight will sneak into the kitchen looking for Santa's plate of cookies and glass of milk to pilfer. She may try to be careful but you just know that that milk will be all over the table before you can bat an eye. And when she finally gets a bit sleepy, Midnight heads into the bedroom but it isn't the bed she is looking for... nope, only one of Santa's extra hats will do for her to curl up and cat nap on. Despite all the trouble she gets into everyone in the workshop loves and adores this little Christmas kitty.

And you will love the candy she has to share too, take a look...    
The Midnight's Christmas candy kit includes; Sweet November Midnight's Christmas rubber stamp set, ten 6x6 sheets of Echo Park 'Tis the Season paper, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Studio Calico wood veneer stars, 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, November 8th and I will announce the winner on Saturday, November 9th. 

Now you'll want to head on over to the Sweet November Gal blogs. Nancy and Tress both have Christmas cuteness overload going on today! :) 
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 an extra name in the hat... this will up your chances of winning the candy. Fun, fun, fun! 

Well, that's all there is to this one and done SN November sneak peek. There are more previews over on the CCD blog today with another chance to comment and win so don't miss that as well! Don't forget... November stamps and dies will be available for purchase at the CC Designs store Thursday, November 7 at 9am EST!

Oh Amy,I just love Midnight! She is just too cute and she truly looks like Madison's Casper, who is the sweetest cat around. :0) I think Midnight although a bit mischievous looks like she is just a doll and very fun to have with you. I really love all four of your cards. You always make your cards look like you spent hours on them. I think your paper just match little Midnight to perfection! Have a great day my friend! Hugs

Hi Amy, I've seen someone wlse use Midnight's lovely stampset these days, and fell madly in love with her. She reminds me so of my own little devil, who'll probably soon discover all the same opportunities for mischiev. It's her fist Christmas.

I'd so like to buy this lovely stampset, but it seems to be sold out at CC Designs. Do you know if I can still get it somewhere? Or maybe does it exist as digi stamp?

I'd be so glad if you could help me on this.

Cheers
