Happy Love Day!

Last week Jude and I made valentines for his grandparents and great grandmas. It was a simple little design that incorporated Jude's drawings.

I pulled out red and pink watercolor pens, colored pencils and markers. I threw in a blue too just for a little more excitement.

He quickly went to work and even drew a bit on his belly before he was finished.

He preferred the technique I like to call "whack and splatter", which created an unfortunate looking valentine. Red watercolor pen + splatter = bloody valentine. Eek. Oh well. We sent them anyway.

I cut out a heart in red cardstock to wrap around his drawings.

Nice. Hope you have a happy Halloween Valentine's day!
