10+ happy birthday messages to write in a birthday card

Yamba-Scandi-Collection-new-shop-now-openJust like that.

After hours of preparing and making and re-making.

My new Yamba Scandi Collection Shop is live.

I’m so excited to introduce…

The Yamba Scandi Collection. Black and white, home decor, scandi prints, canvasses and paper goods that are sometimes quirky, always inspired by Scandinavian Style, with a touch of Yamba. 

I thought you might like to meet…


Yamba Scandi Number Cards.

{And I’ve rounded up over 10 happy birthday messages, for when you don’t know what to write in a birthday card too!}


They’re obviously a perfect new, twist for age birthdays,


don’t let them fool you.

They are equally as versatile for any occasion.





I’ve always had trouble writing something clever in cards…

You too?



I thought you might like a few ideas, (that also go perfectly with these new Yamba Scandi Number Cards.)

When you’re stuck like me.


Try these….


Happy 1st birthday… I’ll understand if you like the wrapping paper more than the gift I picked out.


I’m so glad you are my +1, Happy Anniversary!



Happy birthday 2 you!




Happy birthday!

But… please be advised

that 2morrow

it goes back to being all about me x


Soon you’ll be a family of 3… Happy Baby Shower x


This birthday,

You only need 3 Words…

I love you! x

{ok…maybe the fabulous gift enclosed too!}


4 your birthday…go bananas!


5 ways to have a great birthday…

eat, drink, and be merry! Happy Birthday. x


You’re one in 6 million, billion, trillion, Happy Birthday x





If you can read the last 7 words on this birthday card,
then you are not that old yet.


You’re my lucky 7! Happy Birthday!


I think you’re GR8!
Happy Birthday.

Happy wedding day, here’s to being on cloud 9,
for like…ever x


I hope your Birthday is 10 million kinds of awesome x


The Yamba Scandi number card pack has 10 cards (1 of each design 1- 10) and 10 kraft envelopes RRP $29.99 + Delivery.

All hand finished by me and delivered to your door with care.



I hope you love the number cards as much as I have enjoyed creating them.


My talented friend wrote this for me…
{which is an amazing coincidence…it’s Anzac Day on Monday here in Oz,
she’s writing her 3rd novel that sequels her debut novel Gallipoli Street as we speak
and the 2nd one is due to launch this October, she’s so clever},

Here’s what she wrote…

“Thank you for being part of Yamba Scandi.

When you buy my work you are buying more than just a piece of art or home décor,
you are buying my contemplation, my journey, my art.
Late nights when I’ve pursued a thread of inspiration,
long days when I’ve lost myself in a creative world, my tea left cold.
You are buying my frustrations, my angst, my successes and my joy.
Not just a thing, a part of me. Your appreciation becomes part of the artistic process.
Your payment the gift of opportunity- because in truth you’re buying me time to follow my passion.”

I just had to share…

{told you she was clever}

I think this is so true for many creative businesses, and I truly believe that you become part of the artistic process when you buy someone’s artwork or creative pieces…
and that’s a wonderful thing… promoting creativity and new ideas in this enormous world we live in.



It has become my message that gets sent out with every product…

Thank you. x



Our new home has become the canvas for: Yamba Scandi.

I’d love to think that one day some of my pieces might come to rest in your home too,

or go travelling through the mail on a greeting card to someone you love.


Ever get stuck when it comes to happy birthday messages and what to write in greeting cards?




Happy weekend guys

    You never cease to amaze me…

  4. I love these ideas for greetings. I’m always paralysed when it comes to finding words to put in a card. I always seem to come up with the most cliched words so then I try harder and draw an absolute blank. What a lovely range of cards for many different occasions – congrats on your new range!
