Some sweet winners and another sweet challenge

Hello, hello!
Happy Sunday to you... I have a feeling I'm about to make some lucky gals' day just a bit sweeter so let's not dilly dally and jump right into the fun stuff! :)

Alrighty then, here are the list of winners for this past week's Sweet November candy give-aways.........(imagine me making the drumroll sound here).........

Darby and Bumbles goes to #81- Poydan Kulmalla Napertelija

Fruit of the month: Grape Fairy goes to #102- Kristina Lewis

Ginger Fairy goes to #8- Michellena317

Sparkle Thistleweed goes to #41- 1LUVNMAMA

Congratulations ladies! Email me at with your mailing addys and I will get your candy sent off to you as quick as can be. :)

Thank you to everyone who played along this last week, it was a fantastic turn-out! How exciting it is to see Sweet November Stamps getting such a warm reception, and there is still time to get entered into the drawing for all four of these stamps over at the ATS blog... but you gotta hurry or you'll miss out!
Don't forget that all of these stamps will be available at All That Scraps beginning tomorrow. And if you thought this was fun be sure to keep checking back here for a special SNS Easter release and candy that will be here before you know it! ;)

Ok, now it's on to my card for the day. This is my last Sunday as a guest sweetie for the Cupcake Inspiration challenge and I've had so much fun playing along this month... thanks Rachel!
This week's inspiration had a very definite Valentine's vibe to it that I just couldn't resist and thanks to the wonderful miss Shirley and her fabulous blog candy that I won recently (thanks again Shirley!), I had the perfect stamp to use. Oh and see the big heart in between the two little sweeties? It is nice and blank, making it the perfect place to add a sentiment if you ask me... I love it! :)
So with the inspiration pic in hand and stamp chosen the rest of the card came together very quickly... the colors and glittered papers in my new K&Co KaZoo paper pad totally fit the bill and these Jolee's candy heart embellishments were just right for finishing the whole thing off. This is one of those cards where everything fell into place so perfectly that it just feels like all these different elements were always meant to be used together. I can't help it, that always brings out my inner stamping Cheerio... rah, rah, YEAH! heeheehee props to my fellow Gleeks who catch that reference... ;)

We would love to have you play along this week. Make sure to add a direct link to your NEW creation via the Mr Linky on Rachel's blog by Saturday Feb. 6th at 9pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC44 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required! Rachel will post the Top 5 next Sunday!

And check out what the rest of the sweetie's have created this week:
