Digital-Ink Co. Challenge (DIC007)

Hey there,

I hope your week has started off on the right foot and your weekend was filled with lots of relaxation time and family and friends!!! I had awesome weekend, and it was definitely filled with family, friends and great memories!! Today I hope you will join me in playing week seven of the Digital-Ink Co. Challenge (DIC007). This weeks Challenge is to create Anything But a Card (a gift bag, cupcake, scrap page, journal, etc).

I especially love these challenges, it gets me thinking outside of the box and thinking about other things that  I could make. For this particular project that I made, I've been meaning to make it for a while now and my boyfriend gave me a little extra push to actually make it.

Here is the story: Daniel's mom babysits her little grandson, and Daniel said he stopped by to visit and see the lil' guy since it had been a while. When he got there he noticed on the kitchen table a big piece of computer paper that read, " DON'T RING DOOR BELL, BABY SLEEPING!! Daniel said he thought that was funny but it must have been because the neighbor must come by often and ring the door bell.

So he gave me the idea to make his mom a Door Hanger that read exactly what her piece of paper read. If your wondering why  I chose blue and not a neutral baby color it's because Daniels mom has four boys herself and she has one grandson and another lil boy on the way. She was hoping for a lil girl this time but she's not on her way yet, atleast not from her oldest son.

So here is what I came up with. Enjoy!!!




I think it's just perfect and I'm sure Daniel's mom will love it!!! Ethan's crib bedding is Zebra so I thought this lil image by Sewn Together was just super cute for his lil door hanger.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day and don't forget to head over to the Digital-Ink Co. Challenge Blog and check out what inspirations the other Design Team members have for ya.

What a great idea and something I will have to do sine my daughters friends always come by ringing the door bell when her little brother is sleeping.

Oh wow what a good idea! My daughter's just had a baby and we had to 'text' her first, before we arrived so she could put her dogs somewhere because they barked so loudly poor baby would jump and then wake up crying (Nothing wrong with his hearing!) She's been trying to think of a way to stop the Pizza man from ringing the bell!

What a FANTASTIC idea and so, so cute too!! No little babies around this house needing such a cute hanger but I have a girlfriend with 15 grandchildren and 10 of them are under 4 years old ... I bet she could use a few of these!!! Thanks for the awesome idea!!
