Miriam's happy surprise when she finds the girls working so hard on their cards is great, and I love how she reacts to Betty's lovingly created card. Poor Betty's embarrassment shows so much that I'm surprised that Mrs. Wintercaster didn't catch on immediately, but thankfully she accepted the innocent answer from the other girls. Despite the hint of disappointment in the third panel, I give her credit for deciding to be happy to let them enjoy their childhood while they can. Besides, like she mentions, she really should be getting things ready for such a busy time of year!
Thanks for another great installment of the wonderful little witch's tale.
