New challenge at Polka Doodles!!

Just before writing this post I saw I was on 499 posts so guess what this is my 500TH post! I can't believe I have shared that many cards with you over the past few years!! I should be celebrating in some way but I don't have anything planned so I may just do a surprise give away to one of my commenters over the next couple of weeks.

So it's time for a new challenge at Polka Doodles and as always there are some fab prizes up for grabs. My head has not been in crafting lately and wasn't too sure what to make for this challenge but remembered I had a spare door hanger lying around  so I decorated that.
 I have used everything from the Home For Christmas CD. The images are all pre-coloured which is is what I love about the Polka Doodles cd rom's. AS much as I love colouring sometimes it's nice to spend more time putting something together than colouring an image to create with!! I printed some pre-coloured elements off separately so that I could give the hanger a bit of dimension and I just added a bit of kindyglitz and rock candy stickles for some sparkle! The sentiment is also from the Home For Christmas CD. Both my 9 year old son and my sister both pointed out that the C is back the front on Christmas but I am just assuming that's the way it's supposed to be.. :)
I thought the tree was looking a little bare so I added the rhinestones!! 
If you haven't already guessed the theme for this week then head on over to Polka Doodles to see if you are right and while you are there check out the rest of the DT's fabulous creations, then join in the challenge!
