Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CASology challenge, the cue card is Pet.  A lot of us have had hamsters for our kids when they were growing up and we were no exception!  We had a couple and I have a lot of fond memories from that time!  My Paper Smooches Party Posse stamp set has this adorable image!  My card is also for this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks challenge, this weeks challenge is this great inspiration photo:

I was inspired by the lines, I colored my hamster in the kraft and yellow colors (with his nose pink!) and added the hello from the photo.  I used my distressed stripes embossing folders to mimmick the lines on the jars.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today! 



  1. Hello Lori!! You are so right. My brother had a hamster as a pet for a week. It was the class pet and each of the students got to take him home for a week. It drove me crazy. In any case, your card is so cute. Your hamster is the best. I love your textured background too. Beautiful done.
