Christmas in August at Crafty Ann's

Its time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge blog and this time around the theme is 'Christmas in August'. I love maiing christmas cards, in fact I have loads made all ready for this year so i've really enjoyed making this  card

I've used Crafty Ann's fabby Aga image with a cute little Tilda for this card, I can just imagine Tilda making her Christmas pud lol. I just love Ann's aga it is perfect with so many different cute character stamps :-)

The frame is cut on my cricut and is made using Crafty Ann's crimson paper from the Autumn tones Embossed hearts collections (you can get Ann's lovely papers and digi stamps here). I've used the same paper for the side panel and I've used Anns' polished stone bp in green from the pastels collection behind the aga image,
The checked bp is from my stash ( I think it may be Anna Griffin). To finish off I've added some ribbons and poinsettia flowers from my stash and one of Ann's ticket sentiments.

There is also some news at Crafty Ann's - we are moving home!! This will be the last challenge at the wordpress blog as we are moving over to blogger, pop over to the new challenge blog here to find out how you can win some goodies in Ann's blog warming celebrations lol.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Sentimental Sundays: Anything goes
Donna's Den: Something sweet
Fab'n'funky: Your favourite colours (I love red and green all year round)
