Here are some I have found. I think #1 is maybe something you are looking for, or at least the first half, hopefully you wont have to use the second half of the poem, as I have had to do.

#1
I wanted to let you know what a wonderful person I think you are,
so I decided to hand stamp a beautiful card and send it to you.

I worked all day stamping, cutting and layering
until it was absolutely perfect.
Then I dropped the stamp on it and smeared ink all over the front
-so I had to send you this one instead.

#2
If you had any idea how long it took me to make this card, you would never throw it away.

#3
Framing not required,
but highly suggested!

#4
Made just for you because you are PRICELESS!

Let us know what you end up using.

Found this in the "Need a poem?" thread, which is a big collection of poems...

Too Nice to Use

I know these cards are pretty.
I made them all myself.
But cards are meant for sending,
Not sitting on a shelf.
So choose some friends to mail them to
And send them out the door.
'Cause if you keep them to yourself
You won't be getting any more!!!

Poem by Janine Tinklenberg, Queen of the Vent

Default hi

here are 2 that I found in my list of sayings.
Betty

------------------------


I didnít sign this card

I didn't sign this card
before I sent it off to you,
It holds my warmest thoughts
invisible but true.
So if you find you need
to brighten someone's day
Please take this card and sign it
And send it on its way.

-------------

I got this in a swap, you see
It really made me smile
I fondled it and showed it off
And kept it for awhile
And now itís time to pass it on
For joy is what I wish her
Kindness as a Random Act
To you my Splitcoast Sister!

Birthday Card Verse, Birthday Verses
I found some sayings at the above site. Just a few are below

Betty

********


I made this card for you at the last minute because I forgot to get you a gift.
*******

Roses are red, violets are blue
I made this card just for you
It's not the neatest, it wouldn't pass a test
But it's made with love--that makes it the best.

====
This handmade card brings with it, all the sincerest and bestest wishes I could ever wish for you. Wishing you many wonderful things! Happy Birthday!
Birthday Card Verses
======

Because you are so dear to me, I want you to see that I have you right in my mind and heart... Just look at this card I made you. It's so overflowing with invisible loving wishes, one for each day of the year ahead!
Birthday Card Verses
****

My calendar alerted me, my phone alarm prompted me, and my memory reminded me. It's a very important day today and I remember it so very clearly. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday!

Birthday Card

****

What could possibly beat having a handmade birthday card in your hands? Have a great birthday filled with handmade love!

Birthday Card Verses

There are some great suggestions above and I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for, but here are a few off the top of my head.....

I make cards with my hands that come straight from my heart.

With love in my heart, I work with my hands and make special greetings to brighten the lives of the folks in whose mailbox they land.

I thought of the smile that might grace the face of the one who opens this card as it I created with time, talent and love.

Good luck in your search and happy stamping!

Although I made this card especially for you,
and I do hope it brought you
some cheer,
feel welcome to pass it on
to someone else now
that you too hold
dear.

Diana.........your #1 is priceless.......I'm still laughing. As one who has a bit of a problem with discussing "feelings" I think it is perfect and am adopting it as one of my all time favorites. Can't wait to add it to a card.
