Crafting with Dragonflies - Challenge #7 - It's a WEDDING BLOG HOP

Hello again from

Dragonfly Design Team Badge


I am really excited about our very first blog hop 
and I am sure you will have a lot of fun along the way. 

For our 7th Challenge we are doing something different. 

Besides having a blog hop we have a cryptic quiz for you to work out - 
it is really easy lol

What you need to do is
Grab yourself a cuppa and maybe something yummy to go with it (chocolate)
as this challenge has a bit of reading.

Now your settled we can get started - 

Gather the words for the quiz that you will find HIDING somewhere in our write up about our weddings and put them together in the rhyme that I am sure you all know.
When you have worked it out let us know on the
CHALLENGE BLOG (COMMENTS) that you have completed the BLOG HOP 
and email the rhyme to Susan at 
and add Wedding Blog Hop in the Subject Line.


As money was tight when I got married I was not able to afford everything new 
so I decided to add a flower to my old shoes. 
Nobody would notice or know as you don't really look 
too closely at the bride's shoes. 

I chose to make my card in a Vintage type style and colour 
mainly because it was some years ago and I didn't wear a traditional white dress. 
I wore cream and was lucky enough to know someone
who had a cream veil so I managed to borrow hers.
My bridesmaids were also a little different by wearing 2 different shades of pink.

I have very few wedding photos as most of them were destroyed by
 Cyclone Tracy which destroyed Darwin on Christmas Eve 1974.
This is why I decided to do something a little fancy here
and this card will be placed in a shadow box.

So without further ado here is my Wedding Card.
