A birthday is a time for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy, my friend. Every birthday we experience is another milestone of the distance we’ve traveled in the previous 365 days and the work we’ve done. All we have accomplished, gained, and lost in the previous year is lamented and celebrated on the anniversary of our birth. But it should also be a time of personal reflection and, hopefully, the perfect opportunity to celebrate and take pride in a year well lived, and a job well done.
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.
Click on a card, then hit “Customize.” You’re ready to upload a photo or two, tweak the text or jazz up the font and color. Amp up the fun with images from the Stickers Menu, including hats and mustaches in “Party.” Apply one or two or a few to your photos – or to the cartoon critter you found in “Animals” – or fill up the wide-open spaces. Wrap up your project, and follow the prompts to print your Printable Card or launch your eCard into cyberspace.
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.

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.

[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 use these not only as bday cards but as invitations to bday parties since they are blank inside. I'm most pleased to have purchased this set since I send out a lot of bday cards, and this has a great price per piece. Vibrant colors, fun photo pix, and you don't have to worry about some cheesy poem in the center. Just write happy bday and your own note and you're good to go. Good card stock, and I love the yellow bright envelopes.

The light shed by the candles on your birthday cake is blinding because you are so old! So we laugh together at the very idea. But the true light that is shed on your birthday is the illumination shed by your inner self, by your generous spirit, by the warmth of your friendship. I am thankful for all of that, and because your friendship lights my way even in the darkest hour. As long as we are friends, I know I will always have your special light to guide my path and call me home.
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.
When your friend is feeling down, be sure to comfort him/her. Sometimes it’s not enough to simply wish them a happy birthday or send along your best wishes, sometimes more is required. Like letting them know that you are always on their side, and will always be in their corner no matter how rough life might get. That is the true mark of real friendship: not in birthday presents, but in birthday “presence.”
