It's a circus in here

A girlfriend gave me a stack of doorhanger bases in confetti white cardstock.  I'd never made a doorhanger before, so I tried to think of reasons why I would hang one on a door.  This one could be for a playroom, perhaps.

I had the "under the big top" stamp set handy, so I stamped the tent image from it, and then grabbed a bunch of gel pens and went to town.  The distress ink covers a multitude of smudges, including future ones (from hanging on a doorknob). It's not glamorous, just fun.
