Meet today’s card (and my card for the hop)!

Other than the flags (they are from Hang Ups), everything else I used is from the all-new super duper Party Posse stamp set.

I am not going to lie. I might have freaked out a little (really, I just might have) when I tore open the envelope of this month’s stamps and laid my eyes on the set’s hamster stamp.

See, he kinda reminded me of my trusty pink travel buddy, Ham.

(Ham and his friend Jerome the Gnome on a Saturday night in Times Square.)

(Ham and Suede, who was a contestant on Project Runway)

It was  year ago I started traveling with Ham, who really is just a teeny tiny hamster shaped eraser I found at the local Asian market. He fits right in my backpack. I pull him out whenever I go on a trip. It’s a fun and silly challenge each trip to come up with some kind of unique photos with Ham with a person or landmark. 🙂 Just a fun thing to do.

Anyway, that’s all for now.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  9. Your traveling ham must surely have his own little hammy scrapbook or travel journal, right?! TOO FUN!

    Love that you colored the card to match. I think this hammy was created with yours in mind! 🙂
