Yet another...Pool Noodle Wreath

La Cuarta es la Vencida=4th Time Around

Hola Amigos! This is the last Pre-Valentines post of the Season! Ufff...I thought the day would never come, lol. I have to admit, I've never been so creative about Valentine's EVER!!!! but the key to it was to make it fun. What I really hope is to have gotten across the message that giving more than expecting something is the Key To Love!

On to our last nut craft for V'Day...Another Song inspired one of course ( hey...I told you guys I was stuck in the 80's, ) This time the J. Geils Band and their humorous rendition of the 1980's hit Love Stinks! Do you remember the video...with the gas masks and the fish? Loved it!

But we couldn't just leave it like that...oh no...it needed a main character...a charming one...in comes..Mr. Pepe Le Pew. How doesn't remember this endless romantic hopelessly in loved of that unfortunate kitty cat!
With phrases like "Ze Cabbage does not run away from Ze Corned Beef" what is not to love about this guy!

Put them all together in an old pool noodle that has seen way to many wreaths as you could see, Add some pretty hot pink ribbon and yarn for some contrast and flowers...oh yeah...little flowers because Pepe always thought he smelled like roses...poor little thing...

I used a little sign from Michel's and chalk painted it, but since my handwriting skills are zero to none..I changed my mind and decided better to use little stick on letter for the "Love Stinks, Yeah Yeah" part of the song.

Oh much better!..He is even holding his little heart on his paw...Simple Irresistible...(nope..that's another song!

I borrowed this little stinker from "My Little Stinker"...with the condition "Put it back in my room when you're done with your pictures mom"!!!! the wreath is in his room where he can keep a close eye on his buddy!

I hope you enjoyed and had fun with me with my twist on Valentines! It was a blast and lots of laughs. thank You for all your nice comments and support to my campaign of donating to the Red Cross. I will be heading that way this Valentine's with my oldest son to give the gift of Live and Love to our Brothers and Sisters in need!
