Your Parents




This weeks prompt first thing that comes to mind when you think of your parents easy for my mum it's her art she loves to paint and has recently rediscovered pottery and is making some really cool stuff. My dad died a few yeas ago but my mum and I were talking about him at the weekend and how he always used to buy pick and mix sweets on a saturday night, the only problem was if you asked for one he would say "Those who ask don't get and those who don't ask don't want so they don't get either" not sure how we ever managed to eat them. He also used to buy us all a packet of Walkers crisps but you couldn't have them until match of the day started even if you were tired and went to bed as soon as you ate them. Never did work out why you would have thought he would have been glad to see us in bed wouldn't you. So my card this week is double sided with no journaling, sweets for my dad and art for my mum.

This was a fantastic idea. I love how different you can make your styles- really fitting for showing two different personalities. It was fun reading about them as well. Hey- I was just remembering that you guessed way back when the wicked witch's tights on one of my paintings and I promised candy. I was kind of joking around, but I think it would be so fun to send you a little package of candy. Will you email me your address and I'll send that off? My email is kiazi44@hotmail.com Have a good day.
