I've got a just for fun project to share today.  This one's a gift for a colleague who's wife has just had a baby boy.  It's a decorated chipboard hanger for the little one's room.

I've kept it free of fancy embellishments since I'd be likely to adding flowers and pearls, and those pesky boys don't seem to appreciate such girly stuff.  I don't know what's wrong with them personally!

Even without the embellies, the hubster still reckoned it was too cute.

The papers were a candy win from the lovely Anne (thank you honey, the cute little animals are perfect for a baby project).

I used three different colours of the same design papers and covered the joins with some ribbon.  The sentiment was typed in a fancy font and then cut out into little tags which I placed behind the circular image and stuck in place before layering the image onto some green card to match the ribbon.  I then threaded some sheer green organza ribbon through the holes to create the hanger.

Here's a close up of the image and sentiment:

While I've got your attention there is a special offer on certain Crafter's Companion Stamps over at the Stamp Basket for one week (ends next Sunday). Pop over there to grab a bargain!
