Christmas in August....

Hi everyone..well feeling better..especially after my new Lili of the Valley stamp arrived...think I may need to get a few more! The papers I had in my stash from last year or maybe even the year I thought I would use them up to make some room for all the new Christmas papers have my eye on. Anyway..these papers are Heidi Grace - Frost Boulevard and they are very pretty but this is all the scraps I have left so you can't really see how lovely they are. I coloured James and his crackerwith new Promarkers(still need more as the colours I bought are all a bit dark) and then touched up with is very therapeutic...isn't it Lindsey?? I layered the image onto an embossed panel circles and also added a ribbon and the merry christmas charm which I totally forgot I had and of course a few snowflakes....can't have Christmas without snowflakes!! I have entered this card in the challenges below:
