CFC 89 - Love You Till Tuesday


Oh, this is a fun one! This week's CASual Friday challenge is Love Song.


You know whenever the challenge is a song, I turn to my favourite, David Bowie, who has written songs for almost every occasion. A very long time ago, in the year I was born in fact (and the last time the Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup), he wrote a song called "Love You 'Til Tuesday". Here are the lyrics for the chorus:

Oh, beautiful baby
My burning desire started on Sunday
Give me your heart and I'll love you 'til Tuesday
Da da da dum [x4]

At the end of the song, he says, "Well, I might stretch it 'til Wednesday".

Now at the time (and for a while after that), we know he was 'experimenting', but he's now been married to Iman for over 20 years, so obviously he's a little less fickle these days.

Still, you can't really make a love card based on these lyrics, so I stretched and made an anniversary card for someone whose anniversary will be on a Tuesday. I wanted it to look almost like a reminder (you know how some men are about anniversaries!) so I only attached the calendar at the top centre with a gold brad to look like a thumb tack.

ETA - This card was chosen as a contender! Woohoo!

First... congrats for having a card in the CASual Friday's favorite gallery!
I love your entry this week AGAIN!
Not only good to look at, but so clever as always!

When I first saw the Love song theme over at CASual Fridays, I had a feeling that if you played, it would be using a Bowie. This is perfect. The card is magnificent. Love the glittery heart set so sweetly against the white calendar. Beautiful. Bev
P.S. Congrats on the Liebster, and also CASual Fridays shout out!!

This is a great anniversary card, or it could be a Valentine with an easy change.

What a thoughtful interpretation of the challenge, and song! That gold brad is perfect for the thumbtack. This would be a great layout for a birthday card too! And YAY, I was so excited to see your "T's" as a CASual Friday Favorite!!!

Your thumbtack and 'gentle reminder' definitely will garner a whole lot of Yesses and head nodding from those of us who have DH's that tend to forget THINGS! Such a clever idea. Love the sparkly heart.

Congrats on your awards! :) Terrific card! I just adore that design and I think it would work nicely for other occasions, as well.

I don't know the song so had to read your explanation of the card, but now I totally get it and it's such a clever take on the challenge!
