White Christmas



Morning to you all, what a ridiculous week it's been with Blogger, apart from the silly word verification which luckily is an easy one to resolve, the others issues I've been having are not. I am unable to see photos on the vast majority of blogs I visit and then there is the infuriating issue of typing comments when the cursor moves but no typing appears. So what on earth is it all about, is Blogger just totally overwhelmed by the sheer volume of blogland activity and unable to handle it all ? Really makes you wonder.

Moan over and let me tell you about our Allsorts theme this week which is White Christmas as chosen by the lovely Jo and our sponsors are FlonzCraft and Scrappers Delight.

My card at the top is a recent DT creation I made for Stamp Addicts using the lovely White Christmas sentiment which you can find under New Products, the font is very elegant and it's a decent sizes stamp so needs little more than matting and layering, although I couldn't resist a poinsettia so may have gone a little outside the challenge brief.


This one however is totally white with the exception of the sentiment shadow and unusually for me no stamping. The Deer die is a new one from Penny Black and the stars are a Marianne die, an embossed background and an All Occasion Dies sentiment and card cut on the Cricut.

Today we are off out early for an pre Christmas family celebration so will try catching up with you all soon - dependent of course of the mood of Blogger.

Good morning Brenda
Two beautiful cards today. I especially like the all white card, it is so elegant.
I find blogger really frustrating to use and I was beginning to think it was me and my limited techno knowledge. I think it is just a case of perseverance.

Both cards are lovely - I think my comment has come through OK! So much trouble with blogger is such a nuisance

Beautiful Christmas cards, my fave is the first one. Blogger has been a nightmare this week and having the same probs with commenting as you still. I have noticed it mainly with pop up comment boxes which also had the word verification probs too. Fingers crossed they sort it out soon

Stunning cards Brenda, I love your elegant designs and such a wonderful poinsettia.
I do hope Blogger sorts itself soon. I sometimes have trouble with typing comments when the cursor moves but no typing appears too, most odd.
I hope you enjoy your family celebrations.

Your first card is so elegant, I do think the Poinsettia makes it festive. Blogger meanwhile is showing posts in my reading list that do not exist! Clare's FSC post for instance... what is going on?!!
