Eric's Day Flashback - Valentine's Day.

As today is Valentine's Day the Flashback comes from 2008 when Monty Q had a competition to make Valentine's cards for our loved ones. Eric's card for our dad won and here is the post from then.

When Monty Q had a competition to make Valentines cards for our loved ones, I made one for dad and one for Rosie.
My card for my dad won and Monty Q sent all this chocolate for my Beans. There are three different types of Hershey kisses. Mum said she had heard of them and always wondered what they were like. There's a packet of chocolate with mint centres that can be used for baking, and a box of GooGoos. They have peanut butter in them so mum says we can taste the peanut butter, but we're not allowed to have the chocolate. There's a card with a big man on it too. Mum says he's a Sumo wrestler.

And Monty put in something for us too. There's a heart and a mousie, and I am giving the mousie a good sniff. He smells very interesting.

Thanks Monty, that's a great prize for me to give my Beans.

This is the card I made for my dad which was the winner.

And this is the card I made for Rosie.
These are Flynn's cards, but he didn't win!
