Now on to our challenge for the week!

I am a lass of many tidings,

My love to talk is not in hiding.

Nor is my love of writing a funny rhyme,

Which I have been known to do from time to time.

A worthy trial is issued on this day of merriment,

One that you will conquer, I believe, 100 percent!

A limerick, you must create, to adorn a page or a card,

Don't fret yourself, 'tis not that hard!

Use my friends, linked down below,

Though not a secret, to you, them I bestow!

Enjoy yourself and let your mind wander,

Two lines, at least, no stressful ponder!

Go now and create; enjoy the festivities!

Hop along the blogs; fill up on creativity!

6 days, have you, to fulfill my lofty game,

Thursday shall close; a winner to proclaim!

Challenge: Create a rhyme (at least two lines) and use it on a card or layout. You have until Thursday night to link your creation to this post! The winner will be chosen at random from all the entries! Helpful sites: MSN Thesaurus & RhymeZone
