    Unless it’s written by hand, I’m not big on sentimental cards. Sometimes they’re ok, if you know that the person really means those things, and didn’t just pick up a mooshy card by accident. Normally I like a funny or inappropriate card, with drawings or cute things inside.

    I don’t have any preference because I appreciate both. Everything has its own time and place.

    For friends: funny or blank
    For DH: blank with funny or cute picture, or sentimental but with very little text.

    I never give sentimental cards, and I’d much rather receive a funny one.

    I also like giving and receiving cards that have NO connection to the occasion – you know, cards for old ladies, or for little kids. Sometimes the kids cards are the FUNNIEST – a lot of themes like nose picking, farting, you name it. Really mature, i know. the old lady cards tend to have the same kind of vibe, now that i’m thinking about it.

    It depends on the person and the occasion! I love to get cards that make my sister’s cry… hehe, and that’s usually for “just because” kind of things – like I enjoy giving everyone cards on Valentine’s Day. 🙂 And for example, I typed up a “card” sort of thing to ask my sister’s to be my bridesmaids… and they both laughed AND cried when reading them!

    For FI, it’s usually sentimental. Unless if it’s a card that is about an inside joke of some sort!

    For everyone else, usually funny. 🙂

    I love funny cards, but I definitely like reading how someone feels for me on paper!
