White, black silver and another colour at Just for Fun

Here I am back to crafting after a week away and I was feeling sorry for myselmissing last weeks challenge at Just for fun. I needn't have been sad cause it is almosthe same this week but with an extra colour to play with here.

I had this idea for some of my Christmas 'Cards' cause I am fed-up of the same old thing. So I thought I would make a smaller version for this challenge but make it a birthday card instead.

Here is the card as you would send it--the charm isn't one I made I got it in a charm swap a while ago. I did stray a bit with the mauve on the umbrella--sorry. My added colour is dark pink.

Inside of the card with room to write a message--hopefully lol

And now for the real difference--you can hang it up somewhere--not on a door handle really :)

Here are some of the Christmas ones I have made-they fold up to send and haveo match so you can write a greeting. The silver bits are a pack of muffin bases I bought for 50p at the car boot sale--still a lot left yet.


  1. What a fab idea for a different way of sending a Christmas / Birthday greetings Chrissie :)
    Glad to have you back and joining us at Just for Fun

  2. Wow what a great idea for a card & gift. I love this and the dusky pink is very pretty. xx

  3. WOW Chrissie these are fabulous! Wonderful idea and with your creative style great looking how about a little how to make them? Can only see pink ;) on your Just for Fun one thank you for making and sharing with us XOXO Zoe

  4. What a brilliant idea. I love it - and don't they look great displayed altogether like that.
    Love the one you have done for the JFF Challenge and I am sure the colour on the umbrella is just a shade of the deep pink you have used. I think the shrinky charm is an image from Elusive Images.
    Thanks for joining us at JFF - Hugs, Neet x
