Laughter is the best medicine, it is thought this quote originally came from the Bible, Proverbs 17 – 22. Many others have said similar things. Anyway I digress. The Outlawz challenge for Oct 29th is the rhyme/song Kookaburra.
Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,
Gay your life must be!
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra
Leave some there for me.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra,
That’s no monkey, that’s me.
The rhyme originates in Australia and was written in 1932. In the Uk we don’t have Kookaburras as they are only found in Australia and New Guinea. The closest we have in the UK is a Kingfisher. I toyed with making a card using a Kingfisher, but then found a great Kookaburra cut file at Craft with Sarah and knew I had to use it. It is cut using Cricut and has 26 layers! Having constructed the Kookaburra I decided it did not need much else, so just used a blue backing and added words “Hope your day is full of laughter” written on the Cricut. It was quite time consuming, but I love the finished card.
