It's a candy hunt for this SN preview...

It's time to take another fun filled trip to Sweet November Land and spring is always a magical time to trek back there. I hear the Pixie's are getting ready to celebrate the Easter holiday so let's head on over to the meadows they call home and see if we can't get our hands on some amazing Easter candy. :)

Down by the duck pond we bump into little pixie Esther. She has been quite busy helping the Easter Bunny come up with ideas for hiding eggs. Esther is such a clever girl and she always comes up with the most creative places to stash those beautifully decorated eggs. And since she has an unexpected group to entertain she is delighted to put on an impromptu egg hunt just for us. What fun it is to search high and low for those Easter treasures and Esther just sits back and giggles as she hints about how hot or cold we may be to finding another egg for our baskets. Finally after scouring the meadow all morning long Esther tells us that there is one final egg still hidden and the lucky crafter who finds it will get some pretty sweet candy to take home, check it out...    
The Easter Pixie Esther candy kit includes; one Sweet November Easter Pixie Esther rubber stamp set, nine 6x6 sheets of Making Memories Garden Party paper, Prima flowers and Kaiser Craft pearls, ribbon, twine, buttons, 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 candy will stay open through Friday, February 8th and I will announce the winners on Saturday, February 9th.

Don't forget to check out the Sweet November Gals' blogs! Nancy and Marion have baskets full of creativity to share! :)

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!

Wow Amy such a beautiful card! I love the pastels and the DP, and your coloring matches it so well! The image is so sweet and quite versatile I think even though it is an easter stamp.
