Cards are a waste of money to me.
Normally they just say a simple 'happy birthday enjoy your day' when I write them or receive them. It's never got anything long and meaningful on it. It's just a gimmick to me, to make more money.
I'd much rather just have my friends and family attend my 'do'.
I do buy cards and get the kids to make them for others though.
In saying this, I have kept cards for very special occasions as I'm a bit sentimental, so for our engagement, wedding, DS's 1st bday and both boys christenings.
Otherwise we throw them away. We have nowhere to store them anyway
And nd then there's this card from this guy I went out with when I was 24 and single again. I only went out with him for a couple of months over summer but it was the best summer ever, I loved him he was definitely the one that got away! He gave me a valentines card with a gorgeous message in it, and a letter also.
Now I'm looking at them all feeling so sentimental!
Sorry OP off topic there! As you were!
Have you heard from your friend op?
I have been known to throw out cards the day I received them
Another one who really thinks cards are a waste of trees...
