Are these cute little guys hamsters or gerbils?  I have no idea, but they sure are cute aren't they?

Since I didn't really know what they were, I wasn't sure what color I should make them!  And since I couldn't decide which color I liked best I thought I would just use all three.  And besides, birthday wishes from 3 hamster friends is better than one wish, right?  The more balloons the merrier!

I used colors from the 2022-2024 In-Color Collection.  Balloons should be cheery, and I thought Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party met that requirement.

The openings for my window card were made with a die from Nested Essentials Dies.  I usually think of using circles for a multi-window card, but I liked the look of these rounded rectangles.  These dies are an ONLINE EXCLUSIVE item and if you have missed them because they aren't in any catalogs, you should check them out.  They include a variety of shapes in varying sizes and are thus very versatile!

My hamsters are colored with Stampin' Write Markers and a Water Painter.  This was one of the cards I shared recently on my Learning with Friends series and if you saw it and wished you had more information (i.e. cutting dimensions and instructions), now you can download a copy of the tutorial.

If you missed the Watercoloring with Stampin' Write Markers video you can watch the replay using the link to my YouTube Channel below.

The vertical birthday sentiment is from the So Sincere Stamp Set.  This stamp set is in the 2023 Fall Mini and it has a really nice variety of sentiments.

For the inside I added a few more balloons and another sentiment from So Sincere.

The item number for the sneak peek Fluffiest Friends bundle is 162850.  It will be available to order on November 7.  All other products used are listed below.  Click on any item for more information.
