Our fine four fendered friend!

Hi all,
I hope you had a lovely weekend. We went down to Manchester to visit hubby's brother and family as it was our niece's 7th birthday party. The girls had a fab time with their cousins and didn't want to come home yesterday. I have my first supply teaching job tomorrow, so I will be getting some planning done later today. I am nervous as this will be my first time in a classroom for 2 years. Tutoring was fun, but one child at a time is not as scary as 30 in one go! I'm sure I'll soon feel like I have never been away, though.
Over at Incy Wincy this week, we are sponsored by
and our theme is vintage. I have used a wonderful image by Stamping Dragon Designs called Dodge Tourer. I gave this card to my Dad for his birthday on 20th December. The papers are by Floppy Latte and I distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink. Please check out the rest of the creations from the DT
i would like to enter this into:
Make it Monday - always anything goes



Fabulous card Nikki
