"Love To Love You Baby..."
We all have one, we just may not have actually started burning CD's with this soundtrack on them, playing over (so far...) 15 eighty minute discs. Now I know this is slightly off topic, what with this being a craft blog, but anyone who has followed me for any amount of time will know the crafty stuff comes at the end!
Back to Donna. My favourite track by her is Heaven Knows, a track that didn't even really bother the UK charts, it has all the things I love in a good song; soaring vocals, strings, a strong dance beat and a diva in full effect. Over the years I have played that song literally thousands of times and it sounds as good today as it ever has. I loved her duet with Barbra Streisand (No More Tears) Enough is Enough, her many 'comeback' songs - Dinner With Gershwin, She Works Hard For The Money, This Time I Know It's For Real and State of Independence. All of these songs will have a deeper meaning to me now that she has passed. Every time we lose someone who has given us a gift, even something as seemingly impersonal as a song, that person enters your life in a way you weren't even aware of until they are no longer there. I will miss you Donna but I'm sure you are up there now having a ball with MJ, Sylvester and all the other great proponents of dance music. Much Love x
Now, on to this weeks card and the challenge over at I ♥ ProMarkers is everyone's favourite "Anything Goes". Our sponsor is the very wonderful "The Paper Shelter", an on-line company that offer great digi images that not only come with the line art for you to colour but also the pre-coloured image and a background too, great value for money and a superb selection of great images. The finished card isn't one of my best, but I had a card already lined up and the goal posts were moved on us quite late in the day, but it's not the worst card I've ever made so that's why I have put it up, otherwise I would have just missed this weeks challenge altogether!
So I hope you like the card. If not, then I understand but next weeks card is a doozy, one I am really proud of, so can't wait to show you that.
Have a great week.
