Christmas Circles

 Morning and first of all I have been having trouble commenting on some blogs at the moment and have seen a few people are the same --hopefully blogger sorts it soon!

I have another two Christmas cards to blog I had in draft using Christmas Circles from Chocolate Baroque,coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents.

The plaid paper is from The Works and I added a star peel off border.Frame die-cuts from Creative Dies.

Seems to be lots of Blogger inflicted issues lately Carol, not least the pesky robot most days. That in particular infuriates me especially when you get to all the photo's which is not always easy in foreign languages. Some days I can have dozens of comments to make across the challenges as I like to leave a message on all entries so time consuming!!

Back to your Christmas cards, a lovely traditional feel.

Hi Carol, I hear you regarding commenting i'm having issues finding people too.. As if we need anymore issues with blogger grrr.. but you cards make me very happy to see today. Lovely design, that candle stamp is fabulous, i've been using some lovely CB stamps myself this season.
Hope you are keeping well Hugs Tracey xx

These are beautiful cards! I love the circle toppers along with that pretty peel-off border! I had issues last week with being unable to load more pages while reading my followed blogs, but haven't had issues yet with not being able to leave comments. I'm sure it all has to do with rolling out Win 11 - which I'm avoiding installing on my pc for a gazillion reasons! LOL
