So I end of giving lots of cards each year, namely handmade DIY birthday cards, but there is one card I make that has to be the most special of all. My Mom’s birthday is in the summer, and by spring, I am always on the lookout for the best birthday card to make for Mom. Usually, I look for a creative idea with lots of handmade details, one she is sure to appreciate and be able to proudly display so all her friends can see it. This adorable gift box card was my top pick to make for my mother, and it did not disappoint. I have to admit, mine actually turned out cuter than the picture. I used a plaid paper and red ribbon, and it was so colorful and cute, I wanted to keep it for myself. Say Happy Birthday to your favorite special person with this do it yourself birthday card project.
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.
I wish that you can fulfill all your dreams and goals in life. The best wishes one can wish are that those you love experience success in all their endeavors and are granted the fruition of their lifelong dreams. May your birthday be the window which opens a million vistas that help you in the fulfillment of your dreams and accomplishments of your goals!
[Lyrics] Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, you're lookin' better than a barbecued brisket. You're the cream of the crop and the salt of the earth so we're all celebratin' the day of your birth. You can charm the dew off the honeysuckle when folks are feelin' blue, you can make 'em chuckle. We'll be fancy prancin' until the chickens roost, until the cows are home and all the varmints have vamoosed. Now we feel plum tuckered from having so much fun, So you can stick a fork in us - it's lookin' like we're done. [Message] Happy Birthday

I used this product with the Avery template 5388 from the Avery website and using Microsoft Word to print 3 x 5 cards and it worked great. The sheets are sturdy enough to take two passes through my Brother laser printer, printing first on one side and then manually turning the sheet over to print on the other side. After printing, the cards are easily removed from the sheet and have very smooth borders which look quite professional.

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.

Friends are precious, sometimes more than we would ever dare suspect… if angels are the best, the brightest, and the most beautiful manifestations of pure love we can imagine, it truly says something that we consider our best friends to be their equal in worth and brilliance. When we express our fondest birthday wishes for a friend, we contact the angels in some small way: the true angels of our own loving natures and the friendship we share. That’s well worth celebrating.
Cover Verse: To my Wife my Best Friend You've been there to laugh with me, to cry with me, to be proud of me, and to be happy for all the good things in my life... Inside Verse: You've also shared my disappointments and listened as I worked out my thoughts and feelings about so many things that troubled me... You're the most important part of my world, and you always will be. I love you. Happy Birthday

There are many options for printing great-looking birthday party invitations, but the most economical way is to print on a premium 16-point gloss paper.  You'll also want to stick with a standard size such as 5-inch by 7-inch to keep your birthday party invitation printing costs cheap; however, when it comes to colors you can go with full color since this option really costs little more than black and white yet has much more bang for the buck. Beyond those options, you would be wise to get matching envelopes (also cheap) and have a hardcopy proof sent to your doorstep before you actually print the entire run. The last thing you want is for a mistake to go unnoticed until your invitations are printed, when it will be too late or too costly to make changes. A hardcopy proof does cost a few dollars, but it's cheap insurance that the rest of the run will go off without a hitch. Pass your proof around to friends, family members and co-workers so you can get more than just one set of eyes looking it over for errors.

On your birthday, I want to give you something special to let you know how much I care for you. How often do we find ourselves seeking the perfect gift to give to those we love? We wish we lived in a world where money meant nothing, where we could procure any gift we wished for our friends and loved ones without thought of price. Except, where our best friends are concerned we DO live in a world where money means nothing… because the worth of a gift lies in the emotion of the giver and the quality of the recipient. In consideration of that, even the sweetest rose might doubt its worth when presented to the sweetest of best friends.
True friends will always love us no matter what. Sometimes those whom we love deserve to be told just how much they mean to us, and why. Love is rarely a one-way street. It flows both ways, from giver to receiver and back again. Like any good friendship, it may wane and ebb at times, but at its core, it remains constant. I not only offer my best friend my love, but I acknowledge the love I receive in return.
This is one of the best birthday wishes for friend sentiments that you can give to your best friend. We all want our loved ones to experience a life of joy, and we treasure the joyful moments we can share together. This is especially true of our close friends, and our best friends certainly top that list. When we wish them all the best things in life, the joy, the smiles, the blessings that make life worth living, we are expressing the purest form of love for them.
We sincerely hope you have enjoyed reading these amazing birthday wishes for a friend as well as our interpretations of their meaning.  Sending birthday images with wonderful birthday messages can bring a sparkle to the eyes of a friend who is very dear to you. Even if the birthday celebrant has passed and is no longer with us, you can still send them birthday wishes in heaven.

Show your best friend how much you love him/her by spending his/her birthday with you. Don’t forget to celebrate, and that means party! A birthday is absolutely a worthy reason to express your appreciation for the best friend of your heart. Sometimes that means to kick up your heels and dance your butt off. Sure, some memories are bittersweet and time is fleeting. But that means there’s no time like the present to show your gratitude to the universe for sharing the life and times of your best friend.
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.
