Oh, the barnyard is busy in a regular tizzy


This is my make for the DT team of Outlawz

Sunday - Songs and Rhymes

For the month of  January our sponsor is: Sherry West Art with a prize of 2 images

The  next challenge  is to take inspiration from...

 The song "Spring, Spring, Spring" from the movie version of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers".  Little trivia is that Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire recorded a duet to this song as well.  Below are the lyrics from Johnny Mercer's lovely and romantic song.

Oh, the barnyard is busy in a regular tizzy,
And the obvious reason is because of the season
Ma Nature's lyrical, with her yearly miracle
Spring, Spring, Spring.
All the hen-folk are hatchin'
While their men-folk are scrathin'
To ensure the survival of each brand new arrival.
Each nest is twitterin',
They're all baby-sitterin',
Spring, Spring, Spring.
It's a beehive of buddin' son and daughter life,
Every family has plans in view.
Even down in the brook the underwater life
Is forever blowin' bubbles too.
Every field wears a bonnet
With some spring daisies on it,
Even birds of a feather show their clothes off together.
Sun's gettin' shinery, to spotlight the finery,
Spring, Spring, Spring.
From his eerie, the eagle with his eagle eye
Gazes down across his eagle beak
And a'fixin' his lady with the legal eye
Screams "suppose we fix the date this week!"
Yes, siree, spring disposes
That it's all one supposes
It's a real bed of roses
Waggin' tails, rubbin' noses.
Each day is Mother's Day
The next is some other's day
When love is King

Note:  The theme doesn’t have to be taken literally.  You may use any word or phrase out of it for your project.

I used  shimmery water colours to paint the Sherry West digi.

I started with a creamy shimmery card blank using a mat of pink card. 

The sentiment and scribble are from a  Stampin Up set Hey Chick, stamped in black Versafine directly onto the image.

You will find this on the Outlawz  Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge on January 24th.

Happy Crafting!
