HM "Not a Card" Challenge

This week's HM challenge was "anything but a card". I actually thought of several projects I could do, but I got one done for now so I'll post it. Susan Roberts from Rainy Day Creations recently did a beautiful door hanger using one of Flourishes new stamp sets. So I decided to do a door hanger and use my gruffie who fell asleep reading. I didn't have any chip board so I had to create my own, using some thin cardboard for a backing. I used my Western Sky DP from SU! and my "Bedtime Story" gruffie from HM. I also used some River Rock and Blue Bayou (both retired In-Color papers from SU) and colored once again with my Prismacolor pencils. I stamped some "z's" with VersaMark and added my Cosmo glitter to them. I like how it turned out and decided it would be a cute gift for the older grandkids to hang on their doors when they want to be left alone from pestering siblings. :) Thanks for looking - it was a fun challenge and I'll try to pursue one of my other ideas if there's time. Be sure to check out the other great entries. Hugs.
