This exciting greeting cards collection has everything you need to celebrate all those big life events, from weddings and new babies to anniversaries and, of course, those special ‘don’t forget’ birthdays. No matter how big or small the occasion, greeting cards are a great way to say you’re thinking of someone. Try browsing the selection of Send a Message greeting cards if you’re looking for greeting cards that say good luck or get well, that send friendship thoughts, or perhaps that simply say 'thinking of you'. And for greeting cards at those hard times of remembrance, choose a beautifully worded sympathy card. Whether you need greeting cards for a specific congratulation, such as graduation, new home or new job, or you simply want to write your own message in a blank greeting card, there is a wide range of styles to choose from. Don’t forget to check your monthly calendar for all those upcoming birthdays, and browse the greeting cards selections for all your loved ones such as mum, dad, son, daughter and grandparents, and the greeting cards for extra special milestone birthdays like 18th, 21st, 30th and 60th. For any friend’s birthday there is a wide choice of greeting card styles to choose from such as cute and cuddly bears like the famous Forever Friends, funny cards to make them laugh out loud, more contemporary cards for those fashionistas or simply classic photographic cards and beautifully drawn art. There is plenty of choice for kids’ greeting cards too, especially when they want a special character: select from greeting cards featuring Batman, Scooby Doo, Spider-Man, the Simpsons, Superman and more to keep the children smiling on their big day.
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.
There are a lot of gift ideas you can choose from if you want your friend to be happy on this special occasion, and many ways to celebrate.  You can arrange to acquire and deliver the joy of a traditional birthday cake made especially for him or her. Or if you want your friend to laugh and giggle, send them funny birthday pictures or some unique morning quotes and wishes.
You deserve to have a lot of happiness on your birthday. We love the pretty cards and sentiments we encounter, but they mask a deeper truth. Even if we get distracted and misdirected by other matters in our lives, we can still express our love and appreciation by assuring our best friend that no matter our circumstances we always wish the best for them.
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.
If I get a birthday card, I always look forward to reading funny messages. Even though I've had some very inspirational, meaningful, and thoughtful sentiments written in my card, I especially like a good laugh. Humor is good for you too, so I’ll be around for even more birthday cards! Use one of these to give someone a laugh about his age or birth. Birthdays are a fun time to joke.

For me, your birthday is one of the most special days for the whole year. Every ending is also a new beginning, and the year is no exception. Age may just be a number, but it brings wisdom and the joy of nostalgic memory. Every circuit we make around the sun is another year of opportunity and the joy of sharing our lives with those we love, especially our very best of friends. So a birthday is also a doorway into our own future, through which we can step together, in love.
Whew, it feels like we just barely made it through the Christmas holiday season, but now Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I made these ninja printable Valentine’s Day cards at the request of my seven-year-old son who asked if I would design “some valentines for boys – with no glittery hearts or love and all that girly stuff!” After reminding him that valentines cards are for Valentine’s Day and all, he finally relented and let me add a few hearts to the cards…as long as they weren’t glittery!

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.
