Dies to Die For - Xmas Hamster

Well Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Christmas is definitely on its way - our street has been transformed pretty much overnight with everyone getting their outside Christmas lights out - its so pretty.

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using the ever so sweet Xmas Hamster from Whimsy "Wee Stamps" - I just love him.

Here is the full card:

Ain't he just adorable - I just love his little expression.

All the products listed can be found at Dies to Die For and the recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Whimsy "Wee Stamps" - Xmas Hamster
Papers:  Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove
Fishtail Die:  Die-Namcis - Fishtail Flags Stax
Ticket Die:  Whimsy - Ticket Die
Ticket Stamp:  Whimsy - Friendship Ticket Sentiments

The image has been coloured with Copics and I have used a Cool Grey 70% Prismacolour pencil to shade the bauble:

Face:  E51 E50 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Fur:  E37 E35 E34 E31
Coat:  E29 E27 E24
Bauble:  YG99 YG97 YG95 YG93 UG91 / C3 C2 C1

I have outlined the image with Iced Spruce Distress Ink
All the papers have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink

And that's it.
