Default Sayings for unsigned cards to recycle/pass on

Do you have sayings that you put in cards that are unsigned so that they can pass them on rather than (horrors!) throw it away? This is the one I wrote, but I know I have seen much more clever ones.

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.

I recently saw a thread on this topic but can't search now. It might be in the thread of poems started by Rushed Lady (I hope I got her username right)

I came online to post a thank you for a BRAK card I just received. It happened to have this saying on a slip of paper:

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

I found the thread:

You should also look for the thread mentioned in my original post. And there is an older, extensive one of various sentiments. I think that was started by Delia.

Last Christmas, I enclosed a separate note in all my cards, encouraging people to remove the insert where my personal greeting was written, cut their own using the original as a template and re-use the card. A lot of cards had a single, rather than folded, insert, just adhered to the top of the right-hand inside of the card. Both types of insert were only adhered using a single line of glue-stick, so easily removed and replaced.

An alternative to the above idea.

Mine says: my frugal partner suggested this page should be an insert, removable so you can send this card on to someone else. If I know the person has limited storage space (nursing home resident, for example) I may include an extra envelope. Most folks don’t have A2 envelopes on hand. I keep expecting to get one back, but it hasn’t happened yet.

I did this with Christmas cards and at the bottom of my separate letter I wrote the explanation that the card wasn't signed so the recipient could resend it. Ths was not the first year I had done this, so the person should have known, but a week later or so, I got it back with the message written inside, "OK, here it is!" Still don't know if my nephew was kidding, and my sister was flabbergasted, but they will get a signed card next year!

I actually purchased tablets that have pages that you can insert in your card. At the bottom of each it explains how you can write your message on a page then you can stick it to the inside of your card. The card can then be used over and over if the recipient does the same thing. Purchased from:My Sweet Petunia

Sometimes I just attach a post it note saying: "keep this card or pass it along". Then I put my initials and date somewhere on the card in small letters.

Cute card sayings. Thanks for sharing...

For a couple of years now, I have been giving cards to close friends and family unsigned (I was actually asked to do that) So I usually just put a signed sticky note with my name on it and add an extra insert in the card (with a sentiment on it ) Using tear tape on the back that they can remove and use on the card if they if want to pass it on. If I'm hand delivering I give an extra plain envelope that they can use.

What's funny, a few years back, I sent a card to an older aunt of mine. Last year, I went to a cousins house for Christmas activities, and what do I see among the cards taped to the door? Yup, you got it.

I found a quote very similar to this several years ago. I made a few changes, and this is what I use now. So, my card can become a "gift". If mailing, I put the card in a clear envelope and address with a label.  The card inside is just like new, with this poem inside, which I sign.  Patti M

I didn't sign this card
Before I sent it off to you.
Instead it holds my warmest
thoughts, invisible but true.
So if you find you need to brighten
Someone else's day,
Take this card and sign it and
Send it on its way.
