Question What To Write Inside Baby Card

Hi... I have a store bought card that I'll be sending to a friend who had a baby recently and I want to write something special on the inside of it, but I don't know what to say, because it already says "Congratulations on the arrival of your new baby girl" on the inside of the card. This is the first time I've ever had to give a baby card to someone and I don't know what a person would normally write in one. Any suggestions???

I usually say something like

Dear [fill in name of baby]: welcome to the world! You have wonderful parents. Be nice to them!

I use the stamp from cheery chat that says....sharing in the happiness of your wonderful news.....works for cards before or after the baby.

I knew someone was going to say something about it being a store bought card... LOL! As I said before, I've never had to give anyone a baby card before, up until this point none of my friends or co-workers have been getting married or having babies, I'm an only child and will never be an aunt, so there has never been the need for me to have any baby-related stamps. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions... you've been very helpful!
