Hamsters just want to have fun!

cypdt10thfeb 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is 200th Challenge Special – Pick any challenge from the past year.We have the fabulous 2 Cute Ink  as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I just had to opt for this cute,cute Hula Hoop Hamster as they’re my favourite animals – just don’t tell my dog,OK?! He’s from  2 Cute Ink  but I’m afraid he doesn’t seem to have made his way over into the new shop yet,maybe he’s having too much fun playing 😉 The owner is trying hard to transfer all her digital stamps and you can still check out her other adorable creations there 🙂 He’s been coloured with Graph’It Markers including the Blender to create a soft sky-ish effect around him.Yeah,sky-ish ‘cos it’s not a full blown sky!I kept the card fairly simple by adding this fab apple paper and a white punched border to contrast with both that and the kraft base.A little hand stitching in white to create a little interest plus my chosen theme was ‘Haberdashery Items’.I put a little ‘FUN’ into the card using the Whimsy Spell It Out Alphabet Set stamped onto self adhesive cork,then hand trimmed.Even tho’ this is self adhesive I still tend to dollop a little glue on the back,as with any product of this nature,to give it extra staying power!Three sweet little wooden heart buttons have been added higgledy piggledy (there’s a good old fashioned phrase for you!) style along the bottom.
