How many times have you sung this cheerful song to celebrate a birthday? It’s been around since 1893 and was first written as a classroom greeting by two Louiseville, Kentucky teachers. The kids in their classes sure must have had fun!
Here’s a little more information on the history of this song.
So, in honor of this day, the “birthday” of the Happy Birthday song, I made a card!
I went to one of my favourite stamp sets for this, “Up, Up & Away” and added a little music! It’s a tribute to a song, so one must have music notes after all!
The color scheme was inspired by the Create with Connie and Mary challenge this week.
