Don't forget to leave a birthday message for the birthday girl!!!!! 

Happy Happy Birthday to you, to you, to you! that's the way a local restaurant sings the song to avoid royalty fees.. but none the less, be glad you can't hear me because I can't sing!! Hope you have the best birthday ever! Here's a card I made to help you celebrate!

I used a CTMH dotted paper to form the "present". then some dotted ribbon to "wrap the present" and added a tissue paper flower for a bow! I used a CTMH stamp to say Happy Birthday and added two yellow butterflies for accents. I think this card looks summery and who doesn't love butterflies! So I hope Mary Ann has unwrapped a wonderful birthday by the being the star of our hop today! Here's to many more Mary Ann!! Now continue to party with Teresa at
I'd bet there's a drink or two at her stop knowing her! I'm heading there with you! :)
