My nephews 1st birthday door hanger!!!

I am sooo fed up with this bug I have got, I got it just before christmas and it just won't budge!! everytime I get a little tired it comes back, today I have a headache that won't budge and a throat that feels like I ate a cactus!!!! I had such a great weekend but it was busy so think thats how I got tired and then last night little Mo's asthma was sooo yukky, we were up half the night. His little eyes are so red and bloodshot from coughing and he gets so panicky and upset when its bad ( tonight is not fairing much better so far bless him!) Anyway, thankyou for letting me moan!! At the moment I am working on a ' happy mail' for my amazing freind Michelle (I am late with it to, sorry Mich xxx) so I am posting something I did just before christmas.
My nephew, Rufus, turned 1 in november. He has a pirate theme in his bedroom and I wanted to make him something that would tie in with that. I found the card from cricutbutterflies blog and played with it a little to get it how I wanted it and I used the pirate ship on my PDDU cart to make his door hanging. It was the first time I have attempted a door hanging so I was quite pleased with it. I used black tissue paper for the sails and blue tissue paper for the waves. Its hard to see in the picture but I used rafia to 'tie' the sails and to make the hanger for it to go on a hook on the door. Have a lovely monday everybody xxxx
