We've got a Wee li'l party going on...

Hello everybody!

Are you ready to once again travel back into Sweet November Land? I hear that we will be just in time for a very special party. Luckily, those smallest of the small inhabitants of SN Land, the Fairwees, are the best party planners around and they have gone all out for this celebration! :)

As we make our way once again through the now familiar glen, there is an air of excitement in everything around us. It's hard not to grow anxious as we keep walking with no sign of our wee friends anywhere. Just before we turn around in frustration to try another path we hear the happy humming of a sweet little voice and spot our tiny friend Emaline toting a pile of pretty packages down the lane. We ask her if she would like any help with her gifts but she insists that she's just fine. It's obvious that she is heading to the party so we ask if she would mind giving us directions to the big shin-dig. Emaline only giggles and tells us that it is a surprise party sillies... then in a blink of an eye the li'l will o' the wisp has disappeared!

But before she left Emaline did leave us some sweet candy to be won... take a look...

The Emaline's Gifts candy kit includes; one Sweet November Emaline's Gifts rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of October Afternoon paper, small Studio G acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, decorative stick pins, four envelopes, four card blanks and my card.
Hmmm... a surprise party eh? This is quite intriguing! Apparently the surprise is going to be on us but what do we do now? Perhaps we can listen for another clue? Did you hear anything? Me either... but wait! What is that delicious smell wafting on the breeze? It smells like chocolate and vanilla... yum! Looks like we will be following our noses for this next leg of our journey, LOL! Over the hill and through the trees we go as the delectable scent grows ever stronger. Over there! It's our wee pal Josie and she is just putting the finishing touches of sparkling sugar and candy coated decorations on the yummiest looking platter of mini cupcakes that we have ever seen. Surely sweet little Josie will help us find our way to the party. But someone (I'm not pointing any fingers, ahem...) couldn't resist trying to sample a chocolatey treat early and just like that, she, and the cupcakes, have all disappeared as well. Sigh...

But all is not lost as there is some sweet as can be Josie candy to be had... check it out...

The Josie's Cupcake candy kit includes; one Sweet November Josie's Cupcake rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of DCWV paper, small Daisy Bucket acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, Making Memories die cuts, 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 candies will stay open through Friday, January 6th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, January 7th. And just so you know... all of the new January stamps will be available for purchase on Friday at the ATS store.


Alrighty, now be sure to visit the Sweet November Gals' blogs for a "wee" bit of celebration fun! Marion, Nancy and Rachel are all ready to party! :)
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! :)


Ok, that's a wrap on day one of our January SN previews... I hope you have enjoyed seeing these wee friends again and come back tomorrow to see who the next two party planners will be!
