A huge congrats to one of the nicest people on SCS, Connie Jo!! You certainly deserve to be da queen today.
Connie Jo: I hope you don't mind me taking liberties on the case of one of your sweet Christmas card, but we were supposed to add a fond story to go with our card this week. Since you know Anne Ryan and we know all about the banter that goes on, I hope you won't be offended on what I did to your card. I promise I will make another one to honor your beautiful talent, but this is a contest, right?
The Fruitcake’s UnFond Memories of Christmas Past:
Twas the weeks before Christmas,
And all over the site,
Were The Fruitcake’s beautiful holiday cards ,
Made most every night.
The Fruitcake’s cards were created with the utmost of care,
In hopes that Anne Ryan soon would be there.
Fruitcake was happy for all that she did,
While Anne Ryan was busy flipping her lid.
While The Fruitcake and cards were happily creating,
She would suffer soon from Anne Ryan’s berating.
Away to my cards,
I held on tight,
While Anne Ryan continued
To fill me with fright.
The Fruitcake wanted love and peace to show
While Anne Ryan continued to be her foe.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But Anne Ryan with three faces that put me in fear.
With a little more time, so scared and afraid,
I knew I was in for Anne Ryan’s tyrade.
So, this is my humorous story so feeble,
But I’m resting up now to fight Anne and her “people”!
Sorry Anne, I just couldn’t resist this and since you
named me Fruitcake, I felt it my duty to do something with a Christmas theme since Fruitcakes are eaten mostly at Christmas.
Debzi, put on your investigative hat and make sure that you confirm that this is, in fact, Anne Ryan. The fake diamond ring, red lipstick, chin hair, fake gold purse, bloodshot eyes, rumpled thrift store clohting and sticking her tongueth out pretty much confirms it is HER, but I'll rely on your 9999 IQ to set the record straight!
Anne, it’s also an opportunity to make your very SPECIAL
holiday card for December. I can now check you
off my list of Christmas cards to make.
I hope anyone who sees this hideous card will understand it's all in humor and that I really do better coloring than this. It's just I had to depict Anne in her rumpled thrift store clothes.
Thanks so much for taking a look and feel free to exit out as soon as possible!! LOL!!

I nearly peed my pants when I saw this card and read the poem! ROFL!!! This is just hilarious!!! I wouldn't name my worst enemy fruitcake.........who actually likes that nasty stuff? I think there's one that's been passed around my family for decades without being opened! LOL
This card is just great!! It looks nuffin like Connie Jo's card, but that's OK too - I had a great laugh and I can't wait to see Anne's retaliation! LOL Great job on your card AND story! Too funny:)

Pamzi, this is too good. How long have you been whirling this story around in your mind? I think you may need protection. I could call in all the Punchkateers but I really don't think that will do it. Anne is gonna get you....and probably Debzi, also.

It's fairly apparent why there are so few comments on this card. I need to go to my room and think about why you would be so hurtful to me. What have I ever done to you?
You have the wildest and simplest mind of anyone I've ever met, Fruitcake. The best thing that comes out of this ridiculous story on Connie's special day is that you've got your card all made for me! How sweet it is. I'll humor you until I collect my thoughts and decide how this situation should be handled.
