Today we encountered an unexpected problem. I was enjoying a nice evening tea when I suddenly heard screams coming from outside. Peering out the window I spotted several people running and screaming, some clutching bleeding neck wounds. This couldn’t be good. I grabbed my gunblade and called to the Lady Commander of Copics to arm herself and join me. We rushed outside to the hoards of people fleeing some unknown evil. I grabbed one by the arm, stopping her.
“What are you running from?” I demanded of her.
“Z-z-z-zombies, m’lady,” she trembled.
looked to my sister who shrugged. “Let’s go,” I said heading off the
direction everyone was fleeing from. It wasn’t long before we spotted
the zombies the woman had mentioned. These weren’t just your ordinary
zombies though - these were Christmas elf zombies!
this card I printed off the Dilly Beans image and coloured it using
Prismacolors. I added some glossy accents to the peppermint candy on her
hat. The sentiment came from the Dylusions “Christmas Words” set. I
managed to use up some old papers that I’ve had for two years. I also
used up that old scrap of red ribbon, decreasing the size of my hoard by
approximately 0.00000000000000000000048%. I also added a bell to the
bottom of the bow as it went well with the sentiment. Unfortunately, it
also made this card unable to fit into an envelope, earning me -70
planning exp points. I don’t know what I’m going to do with this now. I
suppose I can make a box for it, but then it would have to be for
someone I’m just going to hand deliver a card to. Ah well...I have
another nine months before I have to deal with that. <PROCRASTINATION
the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Biggie
Christmas Sentiments” set, then added some holly stamps in the corners.

It would appear that these zombified elves are some of the elves that we rescued in the undercover mission last Winter Festival.
Apparently some of them got lost fleeing the workshop and were attacked
by the bone zombies that roam the Forest of Foes, thus turning into
zombies themselves. We found the two that had attacked the fleeing
villagers and dispensed of them easily. As I had seen some of the
villagers were bitten, we would have to take care of them before they
turned and started attacking more people. The Lady Commander and I
decided to split up to expedite the process before more people were
injured. She rode off to discreetly get rid of any people that were bit
and in danger of turning themselves, whilst my direwolf, Lycan, and I
headed into the forest to track the remaining elven zombies. It was
going to be a long night.
