Traditional Christmas



An updateFor those that saw my earlier post regarding issues with Blogger and loads of silly questions including photo verification ones, it seems that unlike the previous robotic question which you could bypass that won't work with what is happening now. It means I just can't comment on my desktop as it takes forever to get past all the verification questions on each blog I visit, so until I can find an answer I am reliant on my tablet, but that's not user friendly to less than nimble fingers, so please bear with me until I can get sorted.

We have a new challenge starting today over at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges, this month I selected theme of Traditional Christmas Colours. As always there is a very generous $20 voucher to be won from FlonzCraft.

I stamped FlonzCraft Baroque Corners with detail gold embossing powder around a sheet of cream cardstock and matted on to red. Next I cut out Tattered Lace Diamond Trellis Frame, stamped FlonzCraft Christmas Greetings centrally again in gold and matted onto a red oval.

The Poinsettia spray is from the TL Charisma range and to finish I added an organza bow and sparkly ribbon slide.

Hello Brenda
Beautiful Christmas card today. Blogger can be a right pain, changing things at the drop of a hat and doing things you never ask it to do. My hubby says it's me but I am going to show him your post to prove that it isn't just me.
Take care
Lesley

Questa è una card savvero speciale, Brenda! Così elegante e tradizionale! Mi piace tantissimo il trellis frame bianco con la base ovale rossa e gli angoli oro embossati! Il fiocco e la poinsettia sono un incanto!

I haven't had any issues today with commenting, maybe I've just been lucky. I hope you get sorted out soon, it takes long enough as it is without silly Blogger adding to it.
A lovely traditionally coloured Christmas card today, love the trellis die and beautiful organza bow.

Donna Ellis said...

Beautiful card, Brenda! I don't know what is up with blogger lately, but I am having enough problems to make me look at a different blog provider and sign in using an ID other than google. It is weird the way Google is picking and choosing which options work on which account and which device. Hope it sorts out soon. Hugs, de

Robin said...

This is so gorgeous! I love the bling around the ribbon and the corner stamp is so pretty. Sorry you're having problems with blogger...It might just be your browser. I have problems when I use Firefox but not when I use Chrome. Hope you're doing well! Hugs, Robin

Oh B. love the classic look of this card .. the swirls then the mesh in white with red touches all so very very delightful.
Sorry to read of commenting issues it made me wonder if you have updated to windows 10? maybe red herring but just a thought.?
Was interested to read of your issues with gilding wax as bought two creative expressions after seeing them on your blog and woe is me they are dreadfully dry... so hope you make in to NEC ..
I will look around maybe able to re-mediate them... have few ideas up my sleeve :D
And thank you, for your lovely words on my blogaversary too (hard to believe the LORD has done it for truly of myself it would never have been let alone continued) ..

Would love you to enter in one of candy if you would like it .. the text or die or... either? as you did not indicate on your kind comment ... thanks so much for posting it on your sidebar.
love dear friend, and God bless you, especially in your health

Pat said...

Beautiful classy traditional Christmas card Brenda. I don't know what is going on with Google at the moment, I can't even get onto my blog on my tablet because they changed everything a couple of weeks ago and it just tells me I haven't got a blog?!!!! It is so frustrating. Rant over, have a lovely evening.

Pat xx

Sally H said...

A gorgeous card, Brenda! I love it! I hate it when they fiddle with Blogger - such a pain! It is only since Google took it over too. It ain't broke so they should leave it well alone!

Becca Cruger said...

Gosh, this is just so elegant. Love the big ol' bow in the corner. A truly magical Christmas card. As for the blogger, I am not having the issues with word verification, but I am having issues with adding photos to my posts. It wouldn't let me do it from my Firefox browser but when I switched over to IE it seemed to work.

Paper Profusion said...

A beautiful card Brenda, I've been working on some traditional ones too over last few days and when all said and done traditional style is my favorite. Sorry that you have been having ongoing techie issues, all seems to be ok with me, I use firefox. I do hope it is resolved for you soon but in the meantime plse don't be working overly on comments from tablet. Nicola, x
