2nd February - Groundhog

Its Groundhog day and news just in is that Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow, this means Spring will arrive early this year (woohoo).

So I was a little unsure as to exactly what I groundhog looks like other than an over grown guinea pig. I did manage to find a photo here so based him on that.

He is made up of a multitude of balloons, but don't ask me how many or what kind as I was kind of making it up as I was going, I can tell you he took me about 15 mins to make, by looking at him I think its 2 x 260s, 1 x 350, 1 x 160 and a scrap of black for the nose plus a scrap of white for the eyes and teeth.
