I feel good when I use Stampin' Up!'s Moving Forward stamp set – and today I used it to make a boy's birthday card.  Why does it make me feel good?  It is the new Ronald McDonald House stamp set in the Stampin' Up! catalog.  On the very last page you can find this set and when you buy it, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald HouseRonald McDonald Houses are very dear to my heart and it is always the first set that I buy.

Yesterday when we were all outside, we saw a frog and Emily said, “There is nothing like a good frog.”  Such a simple and cute statement, and so true.  And it stuck with me.  Then when I got up this morning, it hit me, I have not used it for anything that I have shown on my blog – and that needed to be fixed.

I wish that I could say that I leaped out of bed like a frog, but indeed it was more like I rolled out of bed to the coffee pot and after two cups was able to start.  Which also made me think that I have never been jealous of a frog until this morning, I wish that I was a morning person, but I doubt that will ever happen.

The frog called out to me in the Moving Forward stamp set this morning because of Emily's statement.  And it hit me that my nephew has a birthday rapidly approaching, so it was perfect!

I grabbed my Gumball Green (my fav in color!) and Midnight Muse and hopped on it – pun intended!
