I would love an Elf but don't think I would have the time or the imagination to think of something to do with it everyday.

Two beautiful cards here Mrs A. How on earth did you manage to get everything on straight after the amount of Guinness you tucked away last night? Still, the fireworks were a wonderful display when you let so many off at once!

Fancy Miss coming round after her Mickey Finn and running over her toe with your supermarket trolley! Guess she might give you detention for leaving it lying around!

I've requested more marshmallows & weenies from Bonnie for tonight. Hope she can make it!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Oh, ye Queen of Fold Cards, these are really tops, Mrs. A.! Your joy fold is aptly named as it really is a joy to behold in these colors! And the tent fold is such a sweet card. I love the colors on this one, too, and love those awesome corners!! Such fun happening at the Playground this week with the big 200th celebration! We're all full of pip and vinegar, aren't we?! Well, full of something! Hic! I hope you are doing well! Hugs, Darnell
