In olden days, a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking, but now ...

Hi all,
I hope you had a lovely weekend.  As always, we were quite busy.  Hubby was playing the organ for two weddings on Saturday, so I took the girls swimming in the morning and then Daisy had her drama lesson in the afternoon.  On Sunday, Daisy had a dance show at a local arts festival.  They were dancing by the beach.  It rained all morning, stopped for the 30 minutes the girls were dancing, and then rained again!  It was lovely to see the show and Daisy really enjoyed it.
Over at Incy Wincy this week, we are sponsored by Fantastic Ribbons, who are offering 4 rolls of ribbon to the winner.  Our theme is anything goes (which you may have got from my rather obscure title!)  I decided to get a bit messy, so used a Christmassy vintage image by Nicecrane designs and inked the edges of all the papers with distress inks.  The background is using glimmer mists and the sentiment was a freebie stamp from a magazine.
See you later.
I would like to enter this into:
Make it Monday - always anything goes

Hi Nikbee
I spotted your gorgeous card on the Make it Monday blog and popped over to say hi.
Your card is so pretty and the inking has worked beautifully for that vintage look. I love that free sentiment too.
