...something borrowed, something blue" is a wedding custom that originated in England. Each item in this poem represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy. Since June is traditionally a month favored for weddings, we made a wedding card at my stamp club this week. Since the good-luck tokens hopefully help make a happy marriage, I incorporated the custom into my card planning in the hopes that it would make my stamp club happy! The "something old" is the stamp set we used; "something new" is the border punch as it was the first time we used it. "Something borrowed" is the idea for the border punch frame, which I borrowed from the amazing Dawn Olchefske. And the "something blue" is - well, this may be reaching a bit, but when you look at the rhinestone jewels in a certain light, they almost look a light blue!

Well, it's raining again here (sigh) but hopefully the pitter patter of the raindrops on the roof will sweetly lull me to sleep. I'll try to keep to a regular posting schedule of Tuesdays and Fridays, so I'll see you again next week. Have a great weekend!
