HIding in My Craft Room Challenge # 127 - Holiday Colours!

Happy Saturday my crafting friends and welcome back.  Since it's Saturday, it's time for a new challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room.  This time it's all about Holiday Colours and it 's one of my favourites :-)  I'm very traditional so I love the reds, greens and golds combo as well as the white, blues and silver combo.  I hope you all take time from your busy schedules to make a project of your choice involving Holiday colours and that you join in the fun.  Laurie, our teamleader, has a wonderful Christmas Crafty Surprise for you this week as the prize for one lucky winner.

For my project this week, I made a Christmas card using Hobby Dots. Yes, my friends, my SIL is visiting from Holland and brought me new toys to play with.  This was my first attempt using them, and it won't be my last.  I love the way they look with all their intricate patterns.

The carolers are cut out from a sheet that was included in the kit.  There are several layers to the image that you have to fussy cut and then put together using pop dots to give it extra dimension. 

For the inside I made two fancy corners with the Hobby Dots and stamped the sentiment with a stamp from Hampton Art.
So now it's your turn to link up your project and join in the fun.
I look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations.  The link for this week's project is
