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!
