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.
If you’re set on making all of your birthday cards but are struggling to find the time to make them, these five cards are super quick, and most importantly easy to make, and require only a few craft essentials to make them. All of the products I’ve used are from the We R Cake and Candles range and they coordinate beautifully with each other, so it’s just a matter of cutting and sticking everything onto your card blank.
A homemade birthday card means that you didn’t have to rely on a Facebook notification to remember their birthday, and that makes someone feel special. With a birthday card this thoughtful, you may want to include a birthday gift as well. If you do want to include a gift, what better way to pair a homemade card than with a personalized birthday gift?

It does not hurt to put a little bit of effort when sending personalized greeting cards. In the end, what makes them more special is the time and energy you managed to spend just to create a one of a kind greeting. It does not matter if you are neither artistic nor creative, your sincerity is the best catch. Don’t be afraid to explore designs you have in mind.

This is one of the best birthday wishes for a friend you can send, because it invokes the spirit of the divine to rain down blessings upon your best friend for the entirety of the year ahead. It also wishes them happiness, but greatest of all it wishes them the blessing of good health. We so often forget how health trouble can interfere with our lives; when we aren’t sick or struggling it’s easy to forget how important our health truly is.  That makes this an important birthday wish.
If you can’t attend the birthday celebration of your friend then you can send him/her a special birthday wish to let him/her know that you have not forgotten this day. I’ll miss you on your birthday. I wish we could be together to laugh and love and celebrate the day. Even though we can’t, I hope you know that my heart overflows with love for you. And today I’ll celebrate you and the wonderful moment that you came into my life — for on that day, my greatest dream was born. Perfect.
In this section, you can actually design and create your own card and print it out in your home to send to family and friends. There is a template to which you can upload a personal or family photo from your computer or choose one of the many images available on the site. You can also choose from among the many message options and also add your own personal note. Print it out and voila! You have your own custom paper greeting card that you can sign, seal with love and send just in time for the special occasion!

Your friend’s birthday comes only once a year, so be sure to be with him/her on this day. And whether or not you spend the day with your friend, you can always send a few angels their way to brighten their day and impart your best birthday wishes. These angels are cherubim — child angels — and they carry with them the message of eternal love and the youthful exuberance and joy of the divine, as expressed through the celebration of one’s life.
By sending this birthday wish to your friend, you can make them smile on this special day. Everyone appreciates a compliment, no more so than on their birthday. This birthday sentiment tells them that you wish for them to experience all that is good and that you find them beautiful and deserving of all that’s best in life. Your world is more beautiful because they are in it, and you share that beauty together.

All I want is for you to be happy on your birthday. We get so much by giving to those we love, even if that giving is simply encompassed in our expression of our very best hopes and wishes on behalf of our best friends. In celebrating those we love, we celebrate our shared lives and the time we have spent in the joyful company of our trusted loved ones.  When we put the best future of others ahead of our own good fortune, we demonstrate love. When our best friends do the same, our love is justified.
When someone near and dear to your heart turns another year older, you’ll want to do everything you can to make their day extra memorable. Whether you’re throwing a birthday party, a cocktail party or planning a dinner at the honoree’s favorite restaurant, it’s tradition to give the guest of honor a Happy Birthday card. As if picking out a card wasn’t tough enough, on top of that you’ll need to craft a happy birthday message too.
