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'

Among the great symbols of life and hope in the world, the sea remains one of the most powerful. Ever constant but always changing, powerful, vast, and beautiful, the ocean is a suitable image to mentally conjure when one imagines what best symbolizes the fixed-but-fluid universe. The stars are another great symbol of life and the universe, so it’s comforting that there are stars in the sea as well… starfish. All is connected. Maybe two best friends can be imagined as a pair of starfish on a beach, under a sunset sky, facing the starlit night together. We make wishes on stars of all kinds and hope they come true for our loved ones on their birthdays.
Click on a card, then hit “Customize.” You’re ready to upload a photo or two, tweak the text or jazz up the font and color. Amp up the fun with images from the Stickers Menu, including hats and mustaches in “Party.” Apply one or two or a few to your photos – or to the cartoon critter you found in “Animals” – or fill up the wide-open spaces. Wrap up your project, and follow the prompts to print your Printable Card or launch your eCard into cyberspace.

When it comes to birthdays, do you think the card matters as much as the gift? We do, and never want to be without the perfect handmade birthday card with a personal message. DIY birthday cards are one of the things people often keep longer than the gift, so we always want to make sure to give cards that are extra special and thoughtful. What better way to get a card like this than to make one? Well, this was my thought, anyway. However, when I went looking on Google and Pinterest for handmade DIY birthday card ideas, I did not find exactly what I was looking for. There were lots of free printables from big sites like Greeting Island, Blue Mountain, and even American Greetings, but those lacked the homemade touch I was going for. See, I make lots of my gifts, so adding a cheap looking printed card just won’t do. I was looking for inspiration and step by step tutorials for cute cards to make at home, ones I could be proud of. After the free cards, I came across more tutorials than I could count from sites trying to sell me scrapbook supplies and die cut templates. I understand you have to make money, DIY people, but please, don’t try to sell me stuff to make a simple greeting card, or at least show me I can make one without it. Not nice when you just want some birthday cards you can actually make! I was not looking for some frilly thing that came off looking like a scrapbook, anyway, thank you.

What a sweet birthday wish for a dear friend! For you don’t want to live in a world without the presence of your dear best friend. That would induce heartbreak so intense that it would shatter your heart into a thousand pieces. The landscape of our lives is bounded by familiar landmarks, and your best friend is one of those. How could you ever consider going on in their absence? Why would you want to? Someday one of you will be without the other… but for now, we express the wish that no such day need ever come.
