3 Musketeers: Love Graffiti ♥

Hi friends!

February is so much fun!
It's such a wonderful month, this February of ours :)
There is so much pink, red, hearts, and LOVE ♥

This sweet little Penny Black hedgehog 
surely has the right idea with 'tagging' the fence.
                 We should all have a paint brushes and color our world :)

 I remember when my son was much younger,
we read "Harold and the Purple Crayon" together.
I was so inspired by his reading 
that we did a recreation on his own bedroom wall!
His eyes were huge with wonder and delight,
while my husband just shook his head in disbelief,
and our girls did a trio of "Hey!  Why didn't WE get to do that!"
He chose his Purple Mountain's Majesty crayola
 and started to doodle ♥
He drew train tracks and happy faces,
a dog or a bunny (or maybe a mix of both),
scribbled out his name ...
it was truly memorable 'graffiti' and impressive art ♥

Back to my card :)
It's post day for the 3 Musketeers!
I'm running behind this month ...
because I'm running everywhere else - LOL!
Jeanette was our hostess and I absolutely adore this cutie! ♥

Coincidentally, our purple crayon, wall doodling "little boy" is now 11
He has his school's Principals' Honor Roll Assembly today.
We could not be more proud ~ straight A's again this semester,
including in Art :)
I can only hope that his artistic side continues to flourish,
though scribbling on his bedroom walls was a one shot deal :/

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings ♥
