Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I spent the day helping the Peppermint Pals. There was an early frost this year and their crop of peppermints were in danger of spoilage. Were that to come to pass, it would mean a shortage of peppermints for the upcoming holiday season. Angela and I worked tirelessly with the Peppermint Pals to harvest as much of the crop as we could to prevent that from happening. The last thing we want is riots in the village this Christmas because there aren't enough peppermints to go 'round.
I used one of the stamps from The Greeting Farm's "Miss Anya Lounge" set which I just got in the mail a few days ago after purchasing it during one of their flash sales. I coloured her in using Prismacolors, making her match the peppermint ribbon. I cut the peppermint dies out using the Simply Charmed cartridge. The sentiment was a combination of the word "sweet" from TGF "Sweet &Toxic" set and the Echo Park "Holly Jolly Christmas" set.
The inside sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper "Biggie Christmas Sentiments" set.
I used some snowflakes and stamped them in red and green to make the envelope more Christmasy, earning me +59 festive exp points.

We managed to save most of the peppermint crop, which is good considering Christmas is less than two months away and the harvest still has to be processed into the beloved candies. The Peppermint Pals were so grateful they sent us back to the Guild Hall with 14 cases of peppermint toothpaste.
