Wedded Bliss

It's that time agin! It's time to get our snark on!

For this challenge Edna wants you to think of weddings. What do weddings mean to you?
Bridezillas? Wedding toasts containing TMI? Drunken bridesmaids? Your 80 year old grandfather on the dance floor?

Edna wants you to use the saying, "Something old, something new; something borrowed; something blue." I always thought that it was a requirement that the bride had to wear each one of these things during the ceremony. Has something to do with some superstition I think. 

    Here is my take on the wedding theme. I went with a list on Facebook of funny (thanks, Majo!) tweets about marriage/ relationships. I was thoroughly amused by many of the items on the list, and this one made it onto my card. 

    You'd think that Stella and Gus from Bugaboo digital stamps would be my old item, but you'd be wrong. I bought this digi just for this challenge. Thank you, Christmas in July! Gus and Stella are new to me. Gus's shirt is blue. What's old? The patterned paper. It's from the Basic Gray "Skate Shop" collection, which I think I purchased when my son was two. He's turning 16 shortly. And I already told you my borrowed, which was the sentiment. 

    Please join us for this challenge. You can be as snarky, or as sweet as you please. You have until 2355 EST (11:55 p.m.) on September 1st, 2017 to upload your project here. Please visit the snarky blogs of my snarky sisters and our current Queen of Snark, Ike, and let them know how awesome they are.

This is great, Lee! And your graphic is just fabulous - again! I guess this must be a British custom (Something old, something new etc) as I had to do all that for my wedding. The 'New' was my dress, I 'Borrowed' a 'Blue' garter and I was probably the something 'Old'! Jo x

Yep, if it's Basic Grey, that pretty much guarantees old. :P Fun - and true!?! - card.

I wonder how long Stella and Gus have been married? They seem like experts on the subject! Great card - it would be perfect for a Big Anniversary.
