Hamster Heart

This is Hamster Heart this week's freebie at The Hambo Hoedown...don't you just love that title? LOL
When my son was about 3, we had a hamster. My son named him, "Frankie to the hamster". Unusual name but that's what he called him. LOL We loved that little thing. Except our dog, all he could think about was eating it. The way I colored the hamster, I think he might look more like a guinea pig...we had one of those too!
The Challenge this week is to use decorative scissors. Gads! I always hated those things! I could never get them lined up correctly. Anyway, I dug around and found a pair. I trimmed the top of the cupcake paper. I paper-pieced the hamsters shirt and popped-up the little heart in the center. I added some ribbon and a little glitter on the small cupcake cut-out that came with the image.
I would like to enter:
