hahah, a very cool cupid, redfrog:thumbsup:

Some really cute, funny cupids. :D

I went a little more traditional. Cupid was also known as Eros... and in mythology he wasn't a cute cuddly little cherub.

Weird to think he was also the original Beast in the Beauty and the Beast Story. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, look up the story of Cupid and Psyche).

I went a little over on time, but really, can you blame me?
