    Gratte of Emerald
    I'm feeling grey to go along with my haiku.

    "Humbug," Cronus cries
    Devouring each Hera egg,
    "No fun toys for all!"

    So much fun to read
    Some don't like my purple treats
    I shed salty tears


    Three winners because, geeze this was tough! You each receive 2 x Hera Eggs (because I can!), a winter ornament purple in your favorite color, and 1 Shiny Sun Point, (because I'm currently enjoying the sun and feel the need to share)

    Polly of Emerald , Bolognese of Meridian and Budclare of Meridian

    Congratulations! Prizes will be delivered in the next day or so! Delivered!

    Maybe you've been hiding. Maybe you're on Team Evil and you've been evil-hiding to make it difficult for her to give you eggs.
