A Handsome Valentine or Just a Meathead with Balloons?

Thank you ALL for the amazing comments you left on my birthday giveaway post! I know it would be quite simple to leave a quick comment to enter to win and move on, but MAN, you guys really know how to make a girl feel special! Thank you all SO MUCH! I will keep that one open through Tuesday (Valentine's Day) at midnight.

And speaking of Valentine's Day...how about a date with this guy?

Meathead with Balloons

So...what do you think? A handsome Valentine or just a meathead with balloons? LOL! I think I'm leaning toward the latter, but he is at least amusing! HA! I created him using the SUPER fun masonite Circus Muscle Man with Heart from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. His balloons are from the 1" Circles Valentines Day Collage Sheet by Debrina Pratt. I covered them with a glaze and sprinkled glitter on them before attaching to the wire strings. The papers are from the You + Me kit from Scrapbook Circle.

This is a fun little piece that I really enjoyed putting together. Sort of a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the Hallmark holiday and all it's silliness. I hope you have enjoyed him!

Oh...and please forgive my photos over the next few days! I just got a brand new light box yesterday for my birthday and need to get it properly set up, but I took a few shots yesterday just to see how it all worked and I am SO still learning! LOL! But they are going to ROCK once I get it all figured out! Oh...and watch for some die cutting and embossing madness soon, too, because I also got a Grand Calibur for my birthday! Between The Hubbums and my awesome parents and sister, I pretty much had a craft-tastic day!!!!

Jingle Out.
