Always trust in the Lord. By sharing our faith with our best friends on their birthday we acknowledge the bond that brings us together at the deepest level of our souls: the knowledge that we share the same creator and His love sustains our lives. We also remind our best friend, on the day of their birth, that the Lord is ever ready to take us into the bosom of His blessed love. To dwell in the Lord’s grace would be a very happy birthday indeed.
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.

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'


Today, Birthday Greetings can be sent easily to our friends. Sometimes, we can just rely upon birthday notifications provided by our Social Media accounts in order to remember their birthdays. We can simply send greetings to people we know by posting on their walls on Facebook or tweeting them via Twitter. These modern developments have undeniably improved our rustic memory and definitely made it easier to make someone feel special. However, sometimes, it kinda loses the essence of gift giving and birthdays greetings. If you don’t care to send the very best greeting, you can just stay with the conventional and contemporary ways of sending greetings to buy if you want to make someone feel extra special, going back to the traditional ways of sending greeting cards would never fail to amaze them. It is common to get wall posts and photo tags on any social media when it is our birthday these days but getting a greeting card would surely blow our minds and feel more valued.
In good humor and all in fun, we praise our best friend by ironically honoring ourselves. But self-effacement is the real name of the game here. We honor our loved ones by elevating them even above ourselves in the scheme of our lives, and by wishing them all the joy they deserve on the anniversary of their birth.  Thus do we say “You’re a good friend to me and I wish we could always be together for the rest of our lives.”

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.
Social media shoutouts may be easy, but nothing beats an old-fashioned birthday card via snail mail or hand delivery. The best thing about a homemade birthday card is that it can be tailored to the recipient’s interests and for non-milestone birthdays, like 36 or 68. Even better, you don’t have to go out to shop for one at the last minute. These homemade birthday cards are the perfect way to show how much you know your loved one, and pair great with birthday gift ideas!
