A Wee Hamster

You don't often see one of these swinging on your baubles at Christmas!

So what have I used?
Whimsy/Wee Stamps - Xmas Hamster
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Festive Berries, Fired Brick, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire
Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Walnut Stain
Antique Linen and Spun Sugar
Papers are from Penny Black "Madison" pad
Corners are a Whimsy die and borders from stash

I had hoped to do more crafting today but am feeling distinctly under the weather.  Will try and catch up with some commenting later if the room stops spinning.

Hugs, Sxx

Back in the day I had quite an adventurous hamster and yes, I'd expect to find her swinging on a bauble (and the cats cowering in terror). I love the fun busy patterns in this card!
