The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes Challenge



 My DT card for The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes challenge for the next two weeks is based on this rhyme to inspire you

 

Rain Rain Go Away
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Brother wants to play
Rain, rain, go away
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Sister wants to play
Rain, rain, go away
Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away.

The Outlawz Song & Rhymes Group : New Challenge

 

The new challenge over at The Outlawz Songs & Rhymes group has just started and this is the rhyme to inspire you

Warning
Jenny Joseph

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.


 The prize sponsor, Sheepski Designs, is where you can find the image used on my card 

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

white CS card base / red CS mat / purple foile CS background, embossed / die cuts / rose fabric trim / ribbon / sewn on sequins and beads
