CAS-ual Fridays 89...Love Song

It feels like forever since I last posted...it was a week ago!!  Sorry for the silence.  My computer crashed last Wednesday evening, and I opted to start over with a new computer.  I am thankful I had all my files and pics backed through a company....Got my new computer on Monday, and have spent the last few days not only learning a new operating system but ALSO figuring out how to get my mega folders onto this new computer ....whew.... hoping I am now back on track!!!  On to the challenge...yeah!!!
This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays the challenge is to make a clean and simple project that is song inspired in honor of the Grammys on February 10th....
This week's sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!!...
The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to shop for some really wonderful stamps!!!  Here's what I made...with a stamp that I thought was PERFECT for this week's challenge...
Some readers may be too young to have ever heard the love song that these words are from...Spiral Starecase...More Today Than Yesterday...made it to the top 12...you can click on the pic to watch and listen(remember...it WAS 1969)...
This song originated in 1969...but when my husband and I started dating in 1982, we would sing this to each other...it has been "our song" ever since...and the words are still as true now as they were then!!!  Who would have ever thought I would find the words to our song...a song from the 60's on a stamp????   Thanks, Julee Tilman!!  Every Valentine's Day I find another way to use this wonderful stamp from Verve: A Hundred Hearts set, to let David know what he means to me!  I used some heart dies from Simon Says Stamp: Holiday Shapes Hearts/Stars which I cut apart with utility scissors.  Die cut the largest one 4 times across the card and then filled the apertures with 4 smaller hearts in gradient colors....expressing my love that becomes stronger with the passing of time:)!!
Hope you will join us this week for one last adventure of love before Valentine's Day....thanks for checking in with me!!   Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
