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.
Don’t forget to send birthday wishes to your friend as a demonstration of the high regard in which you hold them. That’s what makes them your very best friend. It’s the perfect way to prove to the person who cares for you always that you return their feelings a hundred times over. Wishes and dreams are only magical if they are shared with those whom we love. We wish all of the hopes and dreams of our best friends will come true all the long days of the year.
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 it comes to birthdays, do you think the card matters as much as the gift? We do, and never want to be without the perfect handmade birthday card with a personal message. DIY birthday cards are one of the things people often keep longer than the gift, so we always want to make sure to give cards that are extra special and thoughtful. What better way to get a card like this than to make one? Well, this was my thought, anyway. However, when I went looking on Google and Pinterest for handmade DIY birthday card ideas, I did not find exactly what I was looking for. There were lots of free printables from big sites like Greeting Island, Blue Mountain, and even American Greetings, but those lacked the homemade touch I was going for. See, I make lots of my gifts, so adding a cheap looking printed card just won’t do. I was looking for inspiration and step by step tutorials for cute cards to make at home, ones I could be proud of. After the free cards, I came across more tutorials than I could count from sites trying to sell me scrapbook supplies and die cut templates. I understand you have to make money, DIY people, but please, don’t try to sell me stuff to make a simple greeting card, or at least show me I can make one without it. Not nice when you just want some birthday cards you can actually make! I was not looking for some frilly thing that came off looking like a scrapbook, anyway, thank you.
At Paperchase, we know how brilliant a good birthday card is so we work to bring you the best selection out there. We have unbeatable choice and cards to suit every sense of humour from the witty to the completely wacky, for her and for him. Find that funny card you know will make them laugh out loud and take a peek at our cards for milestone birthdays too
I hope you will enjoy your birthday because you are so dear to me. When we express our love for others, especially for our best friend, we acknowledge the qualities that make that friend special to us. Specialness is nothing to be scoffed at: the world is full of dull pebbles, so it’s a great accomplishment when one finds a true diamond. The friendship of some people is exactly like that: they are prepared to go the full distance with you, no matter the cost. These are the friends you treasure for life.
The obvious choice for cheap birthday party invitation printing is PsPrint, which boasts a wide selection of premium papers at affordable prices. No matter which printer you choose, make sure they likewise offer premium papers so your birthday party invitations look great and have long-lasting durability (it's amazing how quickly poor papers can be torn in the mail). You should also choose a printer that can provide envelopes and even address, stamp and mail your birthday party invitations out to your mailing list for you so all you have to do us upload your design and forget about it.

All I want is for you to be happy on your birthday. We get so much by giving to those we love, even if that giving is simply encompassed in our expression of our very best hopes and wishes on behalf of our best friends. In celebrating those we love, we celebrate our shared lives and the time we have spent in the joyful company of our trusted loved ones.  When we put the best future of others ahead of our own good fortune, we demonstrate love. When our best friends do the same, our love is justified.
