'Springtime' - Jez
 Mixed Media on gelli print page
My blog-friend Margik is the guest designer for Try it on Tuesday this week, and my entry for the Springtime theme came about when I remembered the rhyme my cousin taught me when I was a small child:
The spring is sprung
The grass is ris,
I wonder where the birdies is?
Birds on the wing -
But that's absurd,
Because the wing is on the bird!

I'm a bit concerned that while the pink cat is wondering where the birds are, they are about to give him a hard time.

I hope spring is sprung where you are, with lovely blossoms and birds singing.

Linking to Try it on Tuesday, Paper Saturdays

  3. Poor kitty doesn't have a clue what's about to happen! Love this one Jez, love the cats decoration and expression. Made me chuckle!

  6. lol the pink cat seems to be pre-occupied with something else Jez. What have you done to him :) is he thinking about that rhyme? I hope he doesn't get attacked he is too beautifull for that. Have a lovely bank holiday and happy Paper Saturdays my blog friend!

  7. So cute, that confused cat is wonderful! Naughty birds! haha What a great rhyme to go with your piece :)

    Happy Paper Saturdays!

  8. I don't believe I've ever heard that rhyme, but I like it and couldn't have been illustrated any better. It's got kind of a nostalgic feel to it. Blessings, my friend!
