Something Old, Something New…………..

Something Borrowed, Something Blue -ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, I've still got memories to cherish.

Just love that old song by The Fantastics and thanks to Lythan I can’t stop singing it now. Just as well you can’t hear me, Lol!

Now before I go any further can I just say a big thank you to everyone who commented on my post on Wednesday about the quilts for the hospice. I’m glad you all liked them and the hospice were over the moon and said they will be well used, so thanks again for all your lovely comments, they are really appreciated.

Right then back to Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue because it’s the theme for the dare over at the The Daring Cardmaker’s this week and Lythan came up with it because she has a family wedding firmly on her mind. She’s challenged us to include all four things on our cards if possible but some aspects are a lot easier than others.

Something old was the cardmaker!
Ok it was really the paper pad from G.C.D studio that I had for a while.
Something new is the little heart charm. They were a nice little barging from The Works….6 for 99p
Something Borrowed was a little more difficult and I don’t know if I can get away with this one but I ‘borrowed’ an old March 2007 card sketch from Page Maps to work from. Oh, just realised that’s another old!

Last but not least I think the Something Blue part speaks for itself really as I used Blue papers, Blue Organza ribbon and even Blue Pearl embossing powder on the Sentiment and stamped flourishes.

oh Sue this is absolutely stunning. Thanks for joining in with The Daring Cardmakers' "Old, New Borrowed and Blue" challenge this week and sharing this beauty with everyone.
I'm now wondering about the song - that's a new one on me -I can't remember hearing a song with the words of the rhyme in it.
