Happy Birthday and Jingle belles Card 46

Good morning ....


It's Remembrance Sunday here in the UK and it also happens to be my brother's 60th Birthday
Happy Birthday Rick ...

This is the card I made for him 


Kind of a nautical theme because he was once in the Royal Navy ... followed his fathers footsteps as did my brother Bill who is still in the RN


That lovely image is from Made By Janet at Etsy

I also have my 46th card for Jingle Belles Rock to share ... This week we are asked to use stickers on our card ... easy one ... Don't we all have stickers around? ... and Jingle Belles this week are being joined by E.A.D. Designs who are offering a prize this week ... so hop over to the blog for all the details and feast on the lovely DT creations ...

One of the blogs I follow is that of Beate who gives wonderful tutorials and when I saw her pocket card  I was smitten ... So that's what I did this week


Using papers from Melissa Frances and some stickers from my stash ... 
The sweet little stocking is a 3D sticker that I stuck to a piece card first ... then punched a hole in and tied it to the holly together with a little bell 



This is the inside tag stamped with a sentiment from WaltzingMouse "Compliments of the Season"  ... one of my all time favourites ... and again a couple more 3D stickers ... I love this pocket card so much that I'm going to make a lot more ... Well, there are only a few weeks left you know ...

Thanks so much for visiting today ...
Till soon

Boy, that's a gorgeous male card you made for your brother Ros! Superb elements! And your Christmas card, what can I say but wow, this is superneat! Don't you just love kraft paper? Hugs, Ira

What a great Christmas card - love how you can take out the tag. The birthday card is also gorgeous, I love lighthouses. Somehow, they always mean "vacation" to me :-)
P.S. I have some blog candy if you're interested.
