Sometimes an idea gets into your head, and insists on hanging around until you’ve done something with it … this was the case with my second card for CASology this week. Yes … I can hear you … what’s a kangaroo got to do with time? Well … are you sitting comfortably … here goes!
We were pondering the infinite possibilities of how the cue word could be used in an
eccentric unconventional way … and as usual, resorted to plays on words and songs (I put the latter entirely down to Ardyth’s OLW ‘Song in my Heart’ challenge!). So, Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper and Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce were both contenders … that was until the Rolf Harris classic Tie me Kangaroo Down Sport came to mind (get it?). OK, I admit, it’s a bit obscure but hey, isn’t obscure ‘a good thing’ sometimes? Voila, my ‘Ti-me’ card 🙂 I hand drew the image from one I found on the internet, coloured it with Promarkers and did the sentiment on the computer (Lithos Pro Regular Font). If you look closely, you’ll notice K’roo here is winking … he loves obscure too … ok, you’re right, the colouring bled just a little into one eye … I really must get some of those fine nib adapters!
Now, quite naturally, if you’re talking about songs with kangaroos in them, no conversation would be complete without Skippy the Bush Kangaroo … able to leap tall buildings in one bound, fly a helicopter, communicate with humans (of course) and vanquish thieves, poachers and any other general baddies in the Waratah National Park near Sydney (the park was fictional but the stories were really … um … real?!). Skippy was on TV in the 70s and everybody knew the theme tune … want to listen to it? You can, here. Enjoy that? Takes you back doesn’t it … did you sing along?
On that note (!), I’m off to do a bit of creating, so I should be back later with something new. Thanks so much for dropping in … Anita 🙂
