Star light, star bright...

first stars I see tonight... LOL!

Hello and welcome to day 1 of the March Sweet November sneak peeks!
You could say that the stars have aligned for this release and we find ourselves looking up into the night sky above Sweet November land to catch a glimpse of the Zodiac girls who reside there.

We are kicking things off with the first sign in the zodiac, Aries (March 21-April 19). Aries is the sign of the Ram and she is active, energetic, impulsive and optimistic. She is open to change and all sorts of new experiences. Her signature color is red, the color of fire and excitement!

And as always we have some candy up for grabs to celebrate the release... take a look...
The Aries Girl candy kit includes; one Sweet November Aries rubber stamp, twenty 6x6 sheets of paper, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, Kaiser Craft star fozz felt, Sakura stardust glitter pen, buttons, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card

Next up is Taurus (April 20-May 20). Taurus is the sign of the Bull and she is quiet, affectionate, patient, determined and practical. She can also be a bit stubborn and resistant to change. Her signature color is mauve, the soft color of refinement and gentleness.
The Taurus candy kit includes; one Sweet November Taurus rubber stamp, twenty 6x6 sheets of paper, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, Kaiser Craft fozz felt stars, Sakura stardust glitter pen, buttons, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
All you have to do for a chance to win this candy is leave a comment on this post. If you link to this 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 candies will stay open through Sunday, March 6th and I will announce the winners on Monday, March 7th. Which just so happens to be the official release date for all of March's new stamps over at ATS!
Want to see even more star sign loveliness? Then make sure you stop by the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Today Nancy is joined by Marley and Lisa and they have all created some gorgeous cards with these heavenly beauties that aren't to be missed! AND I am doing things a bit different this time... instead of using random generator I will be printing out names and tossing them in a hat SO if you leave comments for the SN gals on their blogs, you will get an extra name in the hat for each one that you do... this will up your chances of winning the candy... fun, fun, fun! :)
Be sure to come back tomorrow for day 2 of our SN previews when we will have two more star signs to share and two new Guest Gals to feature as well!
