Kookaburra sits in the old Gum Tree at Paper Play this week!

Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree
Merry Merry, King of the bush is he...
Laugh, Kookaburra Laugh
How Gay your life must be!!

Can you guess which Australian Magnolia I have used??? You'll never guess... LOL

This week at Paper Play the theme is Flowers and Lace, now how simple is this challenge - every thing I make has lace and flowers of some sort on it!!

So In case you haven't guessed - I've used Tilda with her Kookaburra for my card this week!! I actually coloured her ages ago - at Debbie's - the colouring is not so HOT as this was the first image after about 2 weeks of not colouring... and I must say if I don't keep colouring my little bit of ability disappears pretty darn quick!! But she ended up looking cute - so here she is, hope you love her as much as me!!

So what did you think of my Aussie Song???  I remember singing this all the time when I was little - especially on the farm where we had lots and lots of Kookie's.... but then they all disappeared (I don't think it was my singing) anyway many years later another pair came and soon we had more and more - I love Kookaburra's they are definitely my favourite and I'm so glad to say that we had them at our new house too - with all the bush just out the back door I'm sure there is a few of my other favourites - like Galah's.... and Cockatoo's!! 

Anyway I hope you can come along and play with us this week, I'm sure there will be LOTS and LOTS of entries - which means HEAPS of inspiration for Me!!!
