A tale of desperate thinking....


Okay, so the story for this card goes a little like this...

Once upon a time ago, this fair maiden attended the winter fair with the respectable initials of CHA in the year Two Thousand and Nine. Whilst she was there, she stumbled upon a delightful little market booth named Jillybean Soup. The busy women who sold their wares, took some time and taught this maiden how to use their goods. The maiden thanked the women for their tutelage and was sent on her way.

When the winter fair was over the maiden boarded her steel airborne carriage and went back to her land far, far away called Reality. As the months and years passed, the maiden forgot about the beautiful gift that she made with the women until she stumbled upon it while her cleaning fairies where moving things about. Sadly, her gift was somewhat damaged and the fair maiden was distraught.

One day the maiden's daughter came to her and said that she was in need of a way to give Birthday greetings to another of the girls that attended her school. The maiden was so very busy that she needed her fairies to use their magic and fix the situation for her but alas, the fairies were no where to be found. So, the maiden found and old sewing kit and some scraps of parchment and set out to create the vessel on which the Birthday greetings would be delivered. Whilst doing this, the maiden remembered the beautiful gift from a land far, far, away and was able to repair it by adding new parchment in exotic colours and stitched the layers together.

The next day, the maiden's daughter was able to deliver the birthday greetings along with a gift to be treasured and they all lived happily ever after...except for the fairies who were suspended without pay when they were found to be playing a game of who can hide the longest, therefore leaving the maiden to get her hands dirty with staining inks :)

The End
