Squeeeeeeeeeeze ;o)

Well, there you have it, I have just about managed to squeeze out two more Christmas cards :D. Haven't even posted any cards yet this year, more to the point...haven't bought them yet! Something has to be done about that today, as it's now only nine days till Christmas...yikes! I suppose I'm just opposed to buying cards I could perfectly well have made myself, if I hadn't been so lazy ;o) Next year I'm starting in January!

Meet Poinsettia Prue, who feels very sorry for the office workers who have to sit at a desk behind a stupid computer all day...that's why she tries to brighten up their days by distributing poinsettia plants at night, after everyone's gone home ;o) She puts them on the desks so the poor workers have something beautiful to look at during the day, being that they can't enjoy the sunshine and the fresh air ;o). She's almost done, only two more buidlings to go! Luckily all the security people know her and she's welcome everywhere she goes, spreading sunshine ;o)

And this is Candy Cane Chloe, who makes sure she always has a candy cane to hand with a nice bow on it...why you ask? Because she's afraid of Christmas elves, and they are easily distracted if she throws the candy cane in one direction so they go after it, then she herself can run in the other direction! The poor elves don't understand why Chloe is so afraid of them, and have secretly given her wings (she hasn't seen them yet) so that she may feel like an elf too, and maybe not be so scared anymore...I don't know, it just might work ;o)

Materials used:
Magnolia stamp, Hero Arts sentiment, SU! paper, Papertrey Ink ribbon, flowers, Joy! Crafts pearls (first and second card)

Sugar Nellie stamp, Daisy Bucket sentiment, SU! paper, Prima flowers, buttons, Joy! Crafts pearls, QuicKutz leaf die

That's all she wrote for now, have to go get ready for work soon. Have a lovely week, thanks for stopping by and see you next time :D!
