Cover Verse: For [Name], a Good Friend Inside Verse: One of the good things about getting older is that we eventually learn What is important and brightens our lives and what is of little concern... And one of the things that we learn through the years that has always been found to be true, Is how much it means to have a close friend who's a wonderful person like you. Happy Birthday
A homemade birthday card means that you didn’t have to rely on a Facebook notification to remember their birthday, and that makes someone feel special. With a birthday card this thoughtful, you may want to include a birthday gift as well. If you do want to include a gift, what better way to pair a homemade card than with a personalized birthday gift?
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.
We sincerely hope you have enjoyed reading these amazing birthday wishes for a friend as well as our interpretations of their meaning.  Sending birthday images with wonderful birthday messages can bring a sparkle to the eyes of a friend who is very dear to you. Even if the birthday celebrant has passed and is no longer with us, you can still send them birthday wishes in heaven.
I have ordered birthday cards from Amazon several times this year and have been pleased. This time, I wanted to try some different cards and didn't pay attention to the fact that they are "blank" inside. They would have been perfect had they had just a short printed note inside...I am going back to my "Old Faithfuls"...Sometimes change isn't better!
This card has optional greetings: Happy Mother's Day!, Happy Birthday!, Happy Spring!, Thinking of You!, Thank You!, Get Well Soon!, Happy Anniversary!, Happy Summer!, Happy Gardening!, Have a Nice Day!, Just Saying Hi!, Warm Wishes!, Congratulations!, Good Luck!, You're Invited!, Spring is in the Air!, Welcome Spring!, Happy Easter!, Happy Valentine's Day!, Happy Belated Birthday!, [No Caption]
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.
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.

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.
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.
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'

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.”

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.
