Dueling Day : Music


 *** MUSIC IS A GIFT***

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, 
flight to the imagination  and life to everything.”
~ Plato~


                                            ♥ DING DING DING!! It's 'dueling day'! ♥
                                        My partner Judy and I decided on a music theme
                                     for this round of duels, and this is our challenge to you: 
                                      If you could dedicate a song to someone in your life ,
                   what would your song choice be , and to whom will you dedicate it and why? ♥


                                              Now...who doesn't like music?...Really! ;)
What would the world be without MUSIC to embellish each of our lives?

For my card I used : Night of Navy c/s from SU , circle nesties , stamping pastels (SU) , 
Copics , glitter (lots!) and dimentionals.

My choice song for today (I tend to have several choices otherwise) is : 
'You're Still The One' by Shania Twain , recorded in 1997

This is one of many songs that has a very special meaning to me because its words truly depict
what hubby and I had to go through to 'fight' for our love as certain 'friends' of the family were, then , actually belittling us and telling me that what we thought it was *love* was most likely an 'infatuation' that wouldn't last...(perhaps because I was only 15 yo ?....)
Their actual words to me were "yours is only puppy love" 
(yup almost like Paul Anka's old song....*sigh*)
Well , after 3 years of courtship plus 44.5 years of marriage later , we are still together 
and he is definetly still my one and , of course , I will dedicate this song to my man!! ♥

Can't wait to see what ya all 'cooked up' for this duel!!!

Nite , nite....it's almost 3:00 am here , and this night owl is calling it quit! zzzzz......zzzz

****Muwahhhhhhhhhh****

You're Still The One
                                                       When I first saw you, I saw love
And the first time you touched me, I felt love
And after all this time, you're still the one I love
Looks like we've made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday
They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night
Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missin'
They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night
You're still the one
(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night
I'm so glad we've made it
Look how far we've come my baby

Gorgeous and fun card Paola - we had our nay-sayers too, and we are still together after a 4 month courtship and 40 years of marriage :-) (although we were not as young as you were )
Blessings

What a pretty card! Love the many elements you used! WOW! It's really a delightful card! And what a fun song for your DH, too!

THANK YOU so much for being a Darling Dazzler and for giving us all a great kit!

Both are are wonderful Sweet P. I love bright colors of both. You always out do yourself.

Judy McMullen said...

Hi Sweet P! Today's the last day in May and I'm finally getting around to checking out the DD's May creations. I adore your card! The colorful angel is such a sweet image and love the glittery details and, of course, the beautiful butterfly! I thought the second pix was another card but I guess it's the inside of the first. I LOVE that beautiful sentiment image and the cloudy sky dsp for a background and the lovely musical die cut!!

Thank you for sharing your love story and the song is a perfect illustration of long, beautiful relationship with your sweet DH!

So grateful to have you for a partner with the Dueling Darlings. You always come up with such unique and wonderful ideas for the duels we host. LOVE YOU, MY FRIEND!
