I Wheelie Like You

Hi all!  Happy Thursday!  My kiddos got gerbils back in November and I had to get the super cute Lawn Fawn set Wheelie Like You.  I colored up two gerbils on Tuesday for The Daily Marker 30 Day coloring challenge.  {If you aren’t familiar with this, check out Kathy’s blog.  It’s a great time — lots of support, no stress!}  My kiddos can be a bit nosey around my craft table and I was trying to keep them a secret.  Of course, my daughter spied them and exclaimed “They look just like Sandy & Smokey!” — then she awaited further details, which I didn’t tell her.  🙂

This is Sandy — as you can see, she resembles the color of Sandy, hence her name. She’s my daughter’s gerbil and she really loves her wheel.  We can hear her running in it and she’s quite friendly.  I wanted to create a shaker and make it look like the bedding in her cage.  Both she and Smokey like to move their bedding all over the place, creating tunnels, etc.

And here’s Smokey’s card.  He’s completely black, save for a tiny bit of white under his chin.  Unlike Sandy, he doesn’t use his wheel.  He does like to pile up his bedding, tunnel through and boy, can he zip!  He’s more skittish than Sandy.

Just in case you want to see the real deal, here are Sandy & Smokey.
