I need this card! When it comes to writing cards or letters I SUCK at it. If your birthday is coming up, expect a card that says "happy birthday! May all your dreams come true" or a slightly changed variation of it

This can almost turn as either offensive or hilarious if you're a couple living together and sharing the bed together.
