The hamsters had some excitement their 1st day at my house but all is well. My naughty Siamese managed to get the white one out of his cage so my husband and I were on the chase to rescue it from the cat in hot pursuit. So then I tucked their cages in a separate room for the weekend and kept the door shut. Never a dull moment. I told the PT gals someone else gets to take them home this weekend but we ALL have pets.
If you look closely at the top photo.......that is actually the hamster that WAS brown when it was given to us a month and half ago!! I am told winter hamsters turn white. And he is. It was a fun process to watch and happened in a matter of days. The white one (Cosmos) is an attention hog. He is always by his door as shown in photo when I enter the room as if pleading....hold me..hold me. He is quite comical.
The next posting will be back to crafts. I took some projects home over the weekend to work on so I will post as I finish.

I wish all of my blog followers, family, friends and our wonderful customers a safe Merry Christmas.
(Diablo and Shadow wish you one too) And have no fear....the store mascots will be going home with me today so they won't be at the store alone. I am sure the cats will get much entertainment out of staring into the cages. I will be sure to tell you all how that goes after Christmas. lol

Here is another cardinal card but this one is from Judith stamps. (we will be featuring Judith stamps for our January Fab 5)
I inked edges and used Copic markers. I carried the same pattern to the inside of card as well.
