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'
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.
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.

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.

Write "Happy Birthday!" Once you have selected your paper and your card format, it's time to get started on creating your simple birthday card. You can use a thick marker or a combination of different colors to write, "Happy Birthday!" on the front of your card. If you prefer not to hand write it, you can also print the words using a word processor and cut them out for your card, or use the printed piece of paper as your template.
Think of things about the person that you can include to make it personal. Think of something personal about the person you are writing for. For example, maybe the person plays golf. Then you can wish them a happy birthday as it relates to golf. You could write: “I hope your birthday is much better than par. I hope it’s a hole in one.” Or for someone who plays guitar, you could write, “I hope your birthday rocks as much as you do!” Mention a positive quality about the person who is having a birthday. For example, you might write something like, “Your life has been a blessing to me here at work, because you bring a positive attitude to everything you do.”
Cover Verse: Dare to be your truest self. answer your heart's desires. unlock the dreams within you. grace the world with your talents. have faith in your own strength. take risks for what you love. embrace your unique place in the world. recognize how amazing you are. Inside Verse: Whatever you dream and wherever you go, you're going to be great. Because you already are. Happy Birthday with Love
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.”
