A little gift...

Hello one and all and I hope your weekend is going well.
 I have been busy this morning trying to burn off the three courses that we had for lunch yesterday (Hubby persuaded me not to have Fish & Chips!!). Still, it was a very nice lunch and it was a special occasion - well that's my excuse!!

I have a door hanger to share with you today that I have been making over the past few days. It's for Sampson, who is the Grandson of one of the ladies who keeps her horses here. Sam quite often comes to the stables with his Grandma and likes to give Surprise a goodnight kiss...bless!!
 So this will be a little  festive gift from Surprise. 

I used some heavy weight board that, I think, came in the post as protection for some papers. I cut it to
 3"x 6" , rounded the top corners and used a SB die to cut the hole. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and matted on coloured and kraft card. The papers are Doodlebug Home for the Holidays, again, and I used the lovely Jenny's tip and photocopied the papers so that I could cover the back too. I raided my ribbon basket and fastened the bundle and three little bells with a button and twine.
