Hi, I understand that almost all of the Valentine's puns being entered in the valentines contest are already out there and have been "done" by others too, but my valentine entries are my own designs. For example, There are several entries with "You rule" and a ruler… I am not the first person to use the Viking pun, wood pun, or hook pun- but I illustrated my designs myself. Just as I know that many people have illustrated an elephant being flown by a Hot air balloon before you, but your submission is your version of the concept. Thank you!
