Frog went a courting, he did ride...hmm-mm, hmm-mm

You're singing the song, aren't you? Welcome to my world! I get something stuck in my head, and I can't let it go! My title actually has very little to do with the card, but that is the title I wanted today. I made this card for a birthday party that my daughter attended today...the 4th one in a row! It is definitely birthday party season, but she has such a great time that I end up having a good time, too. And, I mentally file the party places that I like for future reference.

I can remember growing up that we had two options for parties: McDonalds and the skating rink. I never had either...Boo hoo!! It was always family only at our house! However, the one really fond memory I had growing up was that my birthday always fell close to Mother's Day, and my grandmother's church had a Mother/Daughter banquet. We dressed up and had dinner in the church basement served by the men. They always gave away the centerpieces, and you knew if you won by whether there was a piece of paper taped under your chair! Whoa, I'm way off topic...ERRRR, back on the highway!

When I read that this week's entry for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday (MTTSC20) was to use a frog, I thought, "oh, that's adorable!" Then, I thought for a minute, "wait, I don't have any frog stamps!" Luckily, I have a friend who owns every stamp known to man, so she brought some over, and this is the result. I used the sketch from SCS this week (SC226). I always get excited when I actually have something she needs and can borrow from me because it never seems to happen!! Well, on to the details!!

Don't think I know the song (different era here) but the card is absolutely fantastic.

I only had "important" birthday parties - 13, sweet 16 and 18. The rest???? Yikes! You mean I missed them! What happened to 20 thru 60?????? See how fast life goes by! LOL.

I am singing the song, Nancy! Makes me think of oldest DS's pre-school program. He sang that song at the top of his lungs, and I was crying from laughing so hard. Good memories!
Your card is adorable! It is good to have friends who own every stamp known to mankind! LOL! :)

This is absolutely wonderful! Thanks so much for using a Simon Says Stamp! I love the frog with his belly up, reminds me of my dog when he is super relaxed!
