    What do you put on cards for Christmas/birthdays/other?
    I'm always trying to write too much. [​IMG]
    I try to personalise things because a simple "Have a good holidays" for everyone seems a little bland. [​IMG]

    I like some of the messages on those fancy cards you can get.
    I saw one today that said,

    How many friends does it take to make
    you feel like the luckiest person on earth?

    I don't give cards. But only because I hate getting them. I don't like having clutter all around me and when people give me cards for Christmas or my birthday then I feel I need to keep them out of respect. So then I end up with bags of cards in the back of my cupboard taking up room. It makes me cringe when I get cards for those two occasions. I also dislike it because I feel the people and I don't actually want to write the cards but you feel obligated to.
    So now I don't. It saves my time & worry and their storage space.
    I absolutely love giving and getting cards randomly though, they do it on their own accord and it shows how much they really care.

    I sometimes give out cards just for the sake of sending a nice surprise. I try to tailor the message to suit whoever it is I'm sending to so it is always different! [​IMG]
    guinea fowl galore, I have got some very very old cards from the time I was <10... recently went through and cleared them all out only kept the special ones from close friends, or which had something custom written inside them.

    I write a bit about recent events in the family, and pop in a gift card for gas,food,and pizza. My dd makes the most awesome cards. She is into anime and her drawings are wonderful. Everyone loves getting her cards. I don't usually keep store bought cards,but I will keep my dd's cards.

    I think I might send one to an old friend I haven't talked to in a while.

    Got some freebie friendship bracelets from a magazine too, so might throw one of those in .They're pretty cute. [​IMG]
