Blog Hop Fun Day 2!

Welcome Blog Hop Day 2!!

The start of a new school year always brings some nervousness and concern for my girls, so we always make sure to get together with friends right before school starts so they can communicate with each other about how they are feeling and feel reassured that they are each feeling the same.

So when we had a friend over she decided to bring her new miniature hamster with her, and oh my how cute this little thing was so tiny and adorable! Well after a few hours of playing with little Cookie, she wasn't looking so good :(

We had to call her Mom to come and get them both. I felt so awful handing over this poor little hamster and a little girl with tears welling up in her eyes!

We checked on Cookie and she was still hanging in there, so we decided to make her friend a card to let her know how sorry we are and that we are praying for her and Cookie. My daughter will deliver it to her friend today, on the first day of school!

Recipe:
Create a Critter for the hedge hog (Which looks just like the mini hamster!)
Accent Essentials for the circles

Cuttlebug folders s
wiss dots and spots and dots
scallop punch

all paper is from scraps!


Since I am a multi-tasker... This project is also for the following challenges:
Peachy Keen: Follow the sketch



and
Paper Cutz challenge:

For challenge # 53, make a card, LO or craft project using a digital, hand stamped or Cricut cut image of a monkey, skunk, squirrel or hedgehog and any colors you'd like.

  15. Love the card! Everyone has a little pet story...I remember the hamster my sister had, it got away and lived in my big brothers BIG desk with lots of drawers for over a week. It recovered and didn't seem to mind staying in his cage after that. Hope Cookie recovers as well.

  34. Oh how very cute!! I saw this on my blog roll and it just jumped right out - beautifully designed and such a terrific card! I had a wee hedgehog for a day or so as a little girl - until my mom saw it in the big box I had hid it in, rofl -- LUcky she was the wiser of the two and made me let it go, hee hee! This just brought back many happy memories - the joy of crafting!!
