We’re still flying high down town!!!


Happy Sunday!
Just a quickie from London.
Tate Modern here we come!
A happy post.
And a chance to win a £20 Gift Voucher.


Very very easy.
Just write the instruction to the card!
Name the colours used etc, the ink pads and the sequence.

Then - and here’s the tricky bit -
write a little poem. Or finish my limerick!
A rhyme which befits the artwork.


There once was a boy who could fly,
He would soar with the birds in the sky,

now you finish it.....





Send your entry to barbaragray123@hotmail.com
but please write your little poem below.
That will surely give us all so much pleasure on this Sunday.
It does the soul good to ponder a poem....

lots of love,

    He would soar with the birds in the sky.
    Floating with ease, in the warm summer breeze,
    Watching the beauty beneath roll on by.

  7. There once was a boy who could fly.
    He would soar with the birds in the sky.
    But he ate lots of things and broke all the strings.
    Now he's a Clarity Stamp you can buy.

  8. There once was a boy who could fly.
    He would soar with the birds in the sky.
    He would float there all night and all day
    All because of talented Barbara Gray!

  10. There was once a boy who could fly
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    Whilst doing a loop, a bird did a poop
    And hit the poor lad in the eye.
    Love Val in Spain x

  11. Hi Barb,
    Love the composition, but you do love to tease us!
    My feeble try is:-
    There once was a boy who could fly,
    he would soar with the birds in the sky,
    and when night came he'd float back to ground,
    contented and happy with what he had found.

  13. Lovely card, so pleased I invested in that stamp as it is fabulous! Here's my attempt with your limerick:
    There once was a boy who could fly,
    He would soar with the birds in the sky,
    The clouds floated past,
    As he held tight and fast,
    And watched all the scenes whizzing by!

  14. Afternoon after a think here goes. !! There once was a boy who could fly, He would soar with birds in the sky. He shouted very loudly I can fly, He frightened the birds in the sky, They had never seen or heard a boy in the sky. He would fly up highy through the clouds then low under the clouds. The birds thought what fun then joined the boy in the sky . In and out the clouds they would go Playing hide ad seek with the boy in the clouds . The birds came from far and wide to play wth the boy in the sky .

  15. Hi Barbara I hope you enjoyed the Tate Modern and the weather has been kind to you today. Lovely card I really must get that stamp he has so many uses! Right here goes
    There once was a boy who could fly
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    So far up he would go
    Til the clouds felt like snow
    Then upon them feeling sleepy he'd lie
    Have a great day
    Love Diane xxx

  16. There once was a boy who could fly
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    Over magical lands
    Over earth, sea and sands
    In his dreams until morning was nigh

  17. There once was a boy who could fly
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    Drifting on the breeze, above houses and trees
    He could go incredibly high!

  18. Good evening I hope you have had a lovely weekend in London at least the weather has been kind to you. We are visiting on Thursday, a day trip to the Tower of London. We have never been and feel we should visit our own sights. Any way I will have a go at your little task.

    There once was a boy who could fly
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    Up to the clouds he did reach
    Far below was the beach
    Where a young girl drifted by
    And she had LOVE in her eye.

    Love Lynne xx

  20. My husband likes a happy ending. Here's his attempt:

    There once was a boy who could fly
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    With blackbirds he flew
    three and twenty, who knew
    They'd all be baked in a pie?
    (serves him right for being able to fly)

  21. Busy day, was planning to have the line about pooping in the eye but I have been beaten to it! Oh well, will have to be quicker next time. Will have a try at explaining the card. XX

  22. There once was a boy who could fly
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    The higher he flew the clarity he saw until the moment a
    Seagull pooped in his eye.

  23. There once was a boy who could fly

  25. Must have a go :
    There once was a boy who could fly,
    He would soar with the birds in the sky,
    As his feet left the ground
    And he looked all around
    He was heard to say " oh my, oh my ! "

  26. Here goes my attempt
    There once was a boy who could fly,
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    so high he would go toing and fro
    and chasing his dear shadow nearby.

  28. There once was a boy who could fly,
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    With a magical leap
    He would leave his deep sleep
    And enjoy all his daydreams on high!

  29. H Barbara. Beautiful card, I love the colours and the whole thing is so soft anddreamy : ) There are some very good, and some very funny, poems here today. My contribution is below.
    There once was a boy who could fly,
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    Together they flew to lands far and new
    Enjoying the sights without hue and cry!
    I hope you enjoyed your day in London. Take care.

  30. Hi Barb,
    This card is gorgeous using possibly my favourite stencil. Love the colours too. Think I'm going to have to get the flying boy stamp! Hope you enjoyed London although I'm not a fan of Tate Modern - give me the National Gallery or Courthould Gallery any day. Love Alison xx

  32. There once was a boy who could fly, he would soar with the Birds in the sky
    Throughout his Magical, Mystical Flight, from early morning till the dead of night.
    The birds they would wonder and stare, at this boy who was just hanging there
    while they flew through the breeze and the magical trees and the word chains
    floating about in the Air! Ta Da !

  33. This is lovely Barbara, really soft and pretty colours and the wonderful boy withthe birds. Unfortunately I was so busy yesterday preparing for a visitor that I didn't have time to do the instructions, and then she rang this morning to say she now can't come as her cat's ill. Oh well, just for fun here is my limerick:
    There once was a boy who could fly,
    He would soar with the birds in the sky,
    Oh what magical fun,
    Midst the clouds in the sun,
    But with night time the magic did die.
    I hope you enjoyed the Tate Modern. We went there once when it first opened and I remember the huge metal spider sculpture in the entrance hall. x

  34. There once was a boy who could fly,
    He would soar with the birds in the sky
    His flight was fantastical
    And ever so magical
    But he came back to earth by and by!!!

    Haha! I am sorry it's a bit late....I've been at Mandy's all weekend! Not long now to the retreat!!! I've got my hair dye ready!!!! Xx
