The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Group : New Challenge

 

Te new challenge in The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes group has just started, and this is the song to inspire you

By the beautiful sea:

Words by Harold Atteridge, Music by Harry Carroll

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea,
You and I you and I, oh! How happy we'll be,
When each wave comes a rolling in,
We will duck or swim, and we'll float and fool around the water.
Over and under, and then up for air,
Pa is rich, Ma is rich, so now what do we care?
I love to be beside your side, beside the sea,
Beside the seaside, by the beautiful sea.

I used alcohol markers to colour the image, as well as the following to create my card

The Outlawz : Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge

 

The New Songs & Rhymes challenge at The Outlawz has just started and this is my DT card, inspired by the rhyme:

The World Cup

The world's abuzz with soccer
Though I couldn't give a hoot.
I wouldn't even have a clue
For which team I should root.
The bars are packed with rousing fans;
I don't begrudge their cheers,
But I prefer a tennis match
To savor with my beers.
I'd also watch the Yankees play
'Cause baseball's what I know,
Though baseball-haters claim the game's
Inordinately slow.
So while the teams do battle
With the World Cup as the prize,
I'll find a book or other show
To occupy my eyes.
 
Our prize sponsor is 

  
who provided the image for my card.

 
I coloured the image with acohol markers and also used the following to create my card:

white CS card base / black CS tag background / twine / cord / the sentiment is my own, created in MS Word
