Can you tell what animal this is? Well, I suppose the blog post title was a bit of a clue! This is a birthday card for my grandson who is getting a hamster for his birthday. Actually, after I had planned(ish) the card, I discovered he's getting two dwarf hamsters but I decided not to change it!

The hamster is a Sarah Bailey cutting file, cut on the Silhouette and coloured with alcohol markers. The sentiment is Clearly Besotted and the 10 is from Sizzlet dies, cut on the Big Shot. I do love a googly eye (or two!) , so what better opportunity?
