Default Frog Sentiments - ribbit, croak, blurp...

With the Unfroggettable set coming out in the Spring Mini, I thought we could share our froggy sayings!

Here's a few:

It's not easy being green. -Kermit the Frog (for a get well card?)
Even frogs get wet when it rains. (for an encouragement card?)
Wow! You really made a splash! (congratulations card?)
Let's do lunch - your pad or mine?
Happy Birthday to a real Prince!


Anyone else?


PS: Have you seen the Moo-Cow sayings thread? It's great - lots of good ideas! Here's a link to that thread...

Talking

Feelin' froggy?

Ok-I have NO idea where this came from, so maybe it won't make sense to anyone. My husband uses this term to mean 'nutty' or willing to take a risk. I've been around him a long time, so maybe it's just a 'him' saying... But I would definately use it. I think it has a sexy connotation as well.

Don't sweat the petty stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff!

I found this one in my list of quotes, and think it would go well with a frog stamp too

Since we do lots of cards for kids some of these are geared more towards them. Some are a little weird but then I didn't write them (or they could be worse) , I just saved the list when it was emailed to me.

May all your warts be small ones.

My frog broke down and had to be toad.

Old frogs never die, but they do croak.

FROG PARKING ONLY - - - all others will be toad.

May all your warts be small ones.

What do frogs order in restaurants? French flies.

What's green and red and goes 120 mph? A frog in a blender. (kind of sick,
huh? - but the boys would love it)

What's white on the outside, green on the inside and goes crunch? A frog
sandwich (another boy thing)

My body is like a million dollars - - - all green and wrinkled!

You make me "toadily" happy

Why would anyone want a prince when you can have a good frog?

Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to
you the rest of the day.

Frog parking only All others will be TOAD

Times fun when your having flies!

Have a toadily wild time!

You are toadily marvelous!

Old frogs never die but they do croak!

Hoppy trails to you!

Just a line… to with you a hoppy day

Hop, Hop, Hooray! Have a good day!

These are too funny! I'll have to pull out those two frog stamps I collected at the LSS (and never used) and make some cute cards!

First thing that popped into my head: Wouldn't this make a really cool GEL card? You could put a frog on the outside, then add a funky green/red gel inside! GROSS!

See the notes in my list (the boys would like it)? This goes in that catagory for sure, if they are like the seven boys I grew up with anyway!
One more boy came after I left home. One sister other than me so frog jokes were good back then!

Exactly what I was thinking! There were six girls vs. two boys in my family. But we had lots of boy cousins who loved frogs and all things gross.

I did this one with Hoppy Easter last March with Easter in mind. It would work just as good for the new frog set coming out.

I bought this stamp to go w/my froggie stamps. I know it's not a saying, more like a poem/wish, but you could free write on the inside or print off on the computer, and I LOVE it!!

May the light always find
you on a dreary day.
When you need to be home
may you find your way.
May you always have courage
to take a chance,
And never find frogs
in your underpants.

I loved the Budweiser frogs!

Never try to catch two frogs with one hand.
F.R.O.G. = Fully (or forever) Rely On GOD
Finer than frog's hair
If you feel froggy, leap
You can have any color as long as its green
You have to kiss more than one frog to find your prince
Time's fun when you're havin' flies
Frogs have it made - they get to eat what bugs them
Eat a frog first thing in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you all day."

these were all found on this website:

http://michelesworld.net/dmm2/frog/pledge.htm

this is my favorite though (from the same site)

I pledge allegiance to the frogs

Of the United Ponds of America.

And to the Lily Pads on which they sit

One pond, under reeds,

With crickets and flies for all.

even frogs get wet when it rains.

the wisdom of tadpoles goes without saying.

flies taste better with a little honey

and a link to fables about frogs:

here's another one from Kermit:

Kermit LetterFrog's
TOP TEN REASONS WHY IT'S GREAT TO BE A FROG

10. Babes are always kissing you because they think you'll turn into a prince.
9. Flies in your soup are a bonus.
8. You're above toads on the food chain.
7. Green goes with absolutely everything!
6. Pond Scum is a term of endearment.
5. Most restaurants have a "no croaking" section.
4. Amphibians are at a minimum risk of appearing on Geraldo.
3. You can scratch hard to reach places with your tongue.
2. You can donate your body to science for big bucks!
1. It sure beats being a newt.

and finally:

Top ten signs you might be a frog.
You get mad when you don't find a fly in your soup
You buy out the supply of wart removal cream in your drugstore constantly
French chefs are eyeing your legs and appear to be following you
Bug lamps appear to you as a curse
On applications, you list 'Pond' as your home address
Kermit is your idol
You get mad whenever Miss Piggy makes a pass at Kermit
Have seen the movie 'The Fly' at least ten times
You live in fear that someday you will wind up in a child's aquarium
France is the evil empire to you

That might work on a card you'd send to someone you hadn't heard from in a while.

For a belated birthday: "Sorry I Frogot Your Birthday"

My weird sense of humor is trying to come up with something like a party invitation with the saying "come to our gig". That's kinda sick though, ya think?

Anna,

You must be psychic--again! Just this morning I did a search in the forums for frog sayings and didn't find anything useful! I have a frog stamp I want to use but nothing "snappy" to use with it. It is unusual for me to do cute or whimsical cards and I was afraid I would lose my motivation to use the frog if I couldn't find some good sayings---and then I find this thread tonight. Way to go, girl!

Thanks---and everyone, please keep those frog sayings coming. I find this thread ribbeting---err, make that "riveting" and toadally engrossing.
