Tale of the Halfling in Distress

Greetings. Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I gathered our weapons, potions and armour and spent the day gleefully battling our way through the Whispering Weathered Woods. We haven’t spent the day grinding for XP in a while and thought it prudent to gain a few levels before the onslaught of quests sure to come our way with the Winter Festival right around the corner.  We were just comparing who had killed more goomy demons when we heard a cry from deep within the forest. We exchanged a look of silent affirmation and headed off deeper into the dangerous woods. Following the cries of distress, we eventually came upon a young girl, with puffy pink hair who was surrounded by vicious goblin dogs.

I made this bookmark by first cutting some watercolor paper to the appropriate size. I then stamped it using the There She Goes Clear Stamps “Nutmeg” set. I watercolored everything using Distress Markers and my Hydra Brush of +222 wetness. I then made a tassel using some baker's  twine earning myself +402 pizazz exp points. I might also decide to laminate it before giving it away, just to give it some extra defence points.

This bookmark will mark its place in the following challenge:

Simon Says Monday Challenge: It’s a Mystery (bookmark for reading “mystery” books!)

My sister quickly cast a stun spell on the goblin dogs so they couldn’t pounce on the poor pink-haired lass as I drew my new sword, Frostbite - a recent acquisition from a previous quest. It was an easy battle to dispense of the goblin dogs, especially after they had been stunned and the young girl was unhurt, just a little shaken. She introduced herself as Nutmeg (Megs for short), of the Spicey Halfling Clan who dwelled in the Fennel Forest. Apparently she had been gathering herbs when she was separated from her clan. The Lady Commander and I offered to take the girl back to Fennel Forest as it was a full day's ride from where we were. Perhaps we would even be rewarded with some herbs - always useful in potion making…
