Salt water candy is back!

Hey, hey, hey!
So are you ready for some Sweet November sneak peeks and candy? I thought you might be. :)

It's June and summer is finally upon us... with the return of the warmer weather we are sure to see the Sweet November mermaids once again migrating back to the magical shores of Sweet November Land. And while all the usual suspects are back lounging on the sandy beaches, this time we are going to focus our attentions on a new and very special 'school' of finned friends. ;)

The first mermaid to be spotted in our spyglass is Sandy Breakwater. Sandy is actually unique in that she is a year round resident of the waters off Sweet November Land's coast. That is because she has a very special and very important job to do there... we all know that pearls are made within clam shells but did you know that the magical clam shell beds of SN Land create the greatest, most precious treasures in all the seas? It is in those clam shells that new baby mermaids spring to life and Sandy is there with her friend and helper, Mama Crabby, to love and nurture them. With her sweet and patient demeanor Sandy is perfectly suited to life amongst her little 'treasures' and all of the merbabies simply adore her!

While I'm sure that Sandy encourages a healthy diet to her young ones, I also don't think she would mind a little candy now and then either... let's check it out... LOL ;)
The Sandy Breakwater candy kit includes; one Sweet November Sandy Breakwater and Mama Crabby rubber stamp, twelve 6x6 sheets of October Afternoon Seaside paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp set, Prima flowers and e.line pearls and gems, ribbon, twine, 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, June 5th and I will announce the winners on Monday, June 6th. And just so ya know... Sunday night is now the official release date for all of June's new stamps over at ATS!

Okey dokey, now you'll want to stop by the Sweet November Gals' blogs and check out the undersea magic that they have each created with Sandy here! Today Kris is joining Nancy and Rachel and I just know that you are gonna want to dive right into the crafty fun after seeing their cards!
Once again... 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! :)

Alrighty, that wraps up day 1 of our June SN previews... come back tomorrow when the precocious little ones will be swimming onto the scene!

I sure hope you are having a great week so far. We are taking the M&Ms to see the new X-men movie tomorrow night at 12am. lol...
