Squeal

Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches blog today! It uses the hamster and a sentiment from the just-released Party Posse stamp set. I'm sure I squealed at least a dozen times while making this card. Even my husband who walked by while I was making, editing and blogging this card, shook his head and said, "Bad..." Since we're a silly bunch, bad means ridiculously cute! LOL

I coloured the hamster with Copic markers, fussy cut and adhered him to the card after stamping the shadow from Vogue Abode. The paper pieced bees are from Perky Plants. Either the hamster is squealing over his own adorable-ness or he's squealing because the bees have come to see how cute he is. If you click on the close-up photos, you can see the tiny whites of the hamster's eyes which is how Kim designed him! Eeek!!

Meg's comment cracks me up.

This is the most squeal-worthy hamster I've ever seen! What a cutie pie! The band of yellow at the top is the perfect touch, too. Nice.
