I found this cute handmade birthday card idea on Pinterest, and it has become my go to. Whip one up in minutes, but no one will ever know you did not spend hours making their card.

Artist Notes:	This is a humorous birthday card especially for dog lovers. It features a colour photographic image of a Jack Russell Terrier Dog leaning forwards with his paws and nose cutely resting on the arm of an office chair. The text above the photo reads 'I've been pondering life, the universe and all that, and I've totally worked out what's most important ...' And inside it reads '... You and cookies, although not necessarily in that order' 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'

Thank the Lord for all the wonderful blessings that you have received for your birthday. In our communion with the divine spirit, we acknowledge the greatness of creation and the joy of our loving friendship as we travel together down life’s ever-shifting roads and highways. But we have faith in the things that truly matter, which includes our friendship and the plan of a benevolent creator. Naturally we would wish the Lord’s mercy and benevolence to grace the life of our best friend on his or her birthday.
There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.

When you sit down with a blank greeting card in front of you, don’t be surprised if you can’t seem to put the pen to paper. Many of us get a case of writers block when we sit down to write a birthday card greeting, especially to the people we love the most. Sure, the birthday honoree knows just how much you love and appreciate him or her but, it doesn’t hurt to remind them on their day.
