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'
Cover Verse: Happy Birthday, Daughter If you can laugh often, love deeply, and let the dreams of your heart create your tomorrow... Inside Verse: If, no matter how busy life gets, you can find joy and wonder in the little things and a few quiet moments for yourself... If every day you feel as loved, as beautiful, as celebrated as you do today... Then you'll always know the kind of happiness a daughter like you deserves.
A birthday should always be a special occasion for the celebrant. Being the highlight of the day, they may want to wear something special and, of course, you want them to feel as good as they can! A birthday only comes once a year but throughout this day you can show your love and appreciation of your best friend by sending him/her your most sincere birthday wishes. The same is true if you are sending birthday wishes to your brother or sister, or anyone else you love or appreciate. Remember: it always lies within your power to make someone’s birthday a truly special occasion.
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.
Wishing a healthy and happy life is the best birthday wish that you can give to your friend. I wish you a Happy Birthday full of Happiness and Joy; I Wish that you never have to see a day of Sadness in your Life; May you gain wisdom but never have to suffer any pain; Let all your Hopes and Dreams come True; May you grow old and wise in comfort; Stay Healthy and Happy for all the rest of your living years.

True friends are hard to find. Having one good friend is already a great blessing, but a true BEST friend is absolutely the luckiest addition you can have in your life. Your best friend will never leave you, even when you’re down. He/she is someone you can talk to whenever you have problems, about anything… no matter the trouble. So when your best friend’s birthday is approaching, you must show your appreciation for their support by doing something special for him/her.


For more than 100 years, Hallmark has been proudly producing greeting cards to help you say just the right thing for any occasion. Celebrate your favorite holidays with our variety of Christmas cards, Valentine’s Day cards, among others.

Birthdays are always in season at Hallmark, and so are those everyday “just because” moments. Or let a loved one know you care during the hard times, with sympathy cards, get-well cards or thinking-of-you cards. Whatever the occasion or event, Hallmark will gladly help you find the right way to show you care.


I don't know if it's just the Avery software of what but these do not print the way that you see them on screen. It's incredibly frustrating when something is centered and there should be no problem with it printing centered on both the front and back but the cards end up overlapping and you can't print doubled sided because they just don't print right. I never have this type of problem when I print regular index cards or word/pdf documents so I'm going with its an Avery software glitch but as long as you print one-sided they're OK.
Blue Mountain has been around for a long time, and they have beautifully designed ecards for any occasion. This site offers a free no-obligation trial, and then you can choose to continue membership for a low monthly fee if you decide that's the way you'd like to go. If you find yourself sending quite a few ecards and you're looking for a site that delivers high-quality artwork and messaging, this might be a good choice for you. As of 2018, a one-month membership costs $4.99; a one-year membership, $19.99; and a two-year membership, $29.99.
Buying your friends and family funny, thoughtful, or sentimental birthday cards is always a nice gesture.  If you’re an avid DIY enthusiast like us, however, then you know that it’s sometimes more meaningful for both people if what you give someone for their birthday is something that you made yourself! Making someone a birthday card doesn’t have to be hard, but it’ll definitely show them how much you care.
When you sit down with a blank greeting card in front of you, don’t be surprised if you can’t seem to put the pen to paper. Many of us get a case of writers block when we sit down to write a birthday card greeting, especially to the people we love the most. Sure, the birthday honoree knows just how much you love and appreciate him or her but, it doesn’t hurt to remind them on their day.
