    rainmac - super card - you are clever:T

    Think youve had the snow worse than us down there. I ran the care home where mum is yesterday and the staff were finding it hard to get into work.
    I know here a 3/4 bus journey was taking 3 hours !
    Been freezing all day today and we've still got some snow in the garden -not enough to make it look pretty though

    I'm creative -you can't expect me to be neat too !

    Here's my pink card for the challenge...




    As you can see I've used another peekaboo box from Craftwork Cards and then Papermania papers, couple stickers & chipboard shapes, Prima flowers and lots of pink buttons :D

    rainmac that is absolutely beautiful - I love the colours :T :T :T

    my peekaboo boxes arrived this morning so will attempt to make one for OH for valentine's day.

    I am here but not posted sorry :o I keep watching and reading, not been in the right frame of mind to make any cards although I really need to make one for OH for valentines day so need to pull my finger out .... I have no excuses as I had some lovely papers from a lovely lady off here arrive this morning so now have no excuses to not be crafty!!!

    Rainmac your card is beautiful! well done ... I might have to raid the penny jar and buy some ... hopefully I will get some sales from my nappy cakes as I had a few people take flyers last week at work!

    My vote is in for PLM :)

    Hello everyone old and new. I've been keeping up with the thread but have not been in the mood for anything creative for a while.

    My son put me to shame this afternoon making a valentines card for his on/off "girlfriend" at school (he's 8 . I've photographed the message inside for posterity but I'll keep that to myself. bless him!)

    Then he made a card for his Dad's birthday


    So I felt a bit bad about not making an effort and finally got around to finishing a project that I've had on the go for a while. It's not strictly a card but a memories box for my friend's little girl. I've put her name inside. Was originally planning to put it on the top but just couldn't seem to match any papers to the pattern on the outside of the box


    And secondly, a birthday card for my godson, he's soon to be 4.
