Pining for some SN candy...

I've gotta say that I think we've collected every last nut and berry in this clearing. Though I can't complain about the work because the pleasant company of little Nutter and the fabulous fall weather have been just perfect. Spring and summer weren't bad at all but I would be content to live in this 'sweet November' forever. ;)

Brrrr... is it just me or has the temperature made a sudden drastic drop? I can't believe we are all having to reach for those winter coats we wore on the trek here. Surely this cold-snap is a sign that we are about to meet the fourth seasonal sprite sibling. And Nutter is quick to confirm that thought as he starts to shake the nearest pine tree. After a few more tries on different evergreens his brother, Pine, comes leaping out of the branches! And a flurry of snowflakes seems to arrive with him, gently falling on us and the two brothers as they play wrestle in a fond hello. Then just as quickly as each of the previous meetings, Nutter starts to say his goodbyes then disappears.
Little Pine is a bundle of energy as the snow starts falling fast and thick. Before we know it, the white stuff is piling high and Pine has built a fantastic snowman here in the meadow. There really is no doubt that he is doing his job in bringing winter with him wherever he goes as we gaze across the transformed landscape of snowy white. And even though he is just as sweet as can be, I think this is a sign that it's time to head back home. I mean, it's not like we are escaping the winter weather here anymore! So we say our own goodbyes to Pine as he skips off to play with the snowman and little woodland friends. Then we make our way back to the real world. Upon return, I can only hope that Bloom will be traveling here sooner rather than later. ;)

In the meantime... Pine did send some fresh winter candy for us to enjoy, check it out...

The Pine candy kit includes; one Sweet November Pine rubber stamp, ten 6x6 sheets of We R Memorykeepers Merry January paper, small We R acrylic stamp, Prima flowers, Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, pine cone 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 tomorrow, February 3rd and I will announce the winners on Saturday, February 4th. And just so you know... all of the new February stamps will be available for purchase tomorrow at the ATS store.

Alrighty, time to hop on over to the Sweet November Gals' blogs... Sammi, Nancy, and Marion will have you pining to get your hands on these new stamps! :)
As always, 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! And there is still time to leave a comment over on the ATS blog Sweet November preview post for even more chances to win!
