2 Cute Hula Hoop Hamster - Challenge #3

Well today is the beginning of 2 Cute Rubber Stamps Challenge #3!!    Heidi is offering this adorable digi image Hula Hoop Hamster FREE!!!.

This adorable hamster was quick and a lot of fun to color.  He's perfect for all so many occasions such as Congrats, Happy Birthday, Hello, Thinking of You, etc....  He's so sweet and happy that it makes him perfect to use for just about anything!!  

I played with my Flower Soft for the very first time on this card.  I mixed a little of the 2 shades of green I had together to create the grass.  I like it, but I don't see it being my "go to" embellishment.  (Now watch, all my cards will have Flower Soft on them.  LOL)    I used Shimmerz on the hula hoop and on the little roses too.  The DP is DCWV Citrus Stack and of course he's colored with my Copics.  The font is computer generated (Big Caslon), and some Lemon Grass ribbon from my stash.

Make sure to stop by the 2 Cute DT Blog for your free digi image. There will be awesome DT creations for inspiration and details on entering the 2 Cute Challenge #3. I do so hope that some of my readers will participate in the challenge, I'd love to see what you create. Not only will there be a FAB prize but all entries into the challenge will be considered for a Special Feature Spot on the 2 Cute DT Blog!!! How Cool Is THAT?!?!
