Memorial Day has just passed and the Fourth of July is not far off -- it's the patriotic days of summer! DRS Designs has a great assortment of patriotic images and sentiments to commemorate these occasions, used to decorate scrapbooks of family BBQs or send a personalized card to a special service member. Check out the DRS blog for more cards featuring patriotic images.

While you are celebrating the summer holidays, be sure to remember the men and women in the armed forces who are away from home this summer. A great way to show them we care is to create cards sent directly to a service member or to be used by them to send special messages to friends and family back home.

WRAK on SplitCoastStampers is hosting a 'Cards for the Troops Round-up' over the Fourth of July weekend. If you are already a member of WRAK, be sure to join in the fun; if you are not yet a member, there's still time to join this fun group and worthwhile cause. The theme for this year is "It was Almost Like a Song" and challenges will be running Friday through Saturday evenings. It will be my first time as a challenge hostess, so stop by and say 'hi'!
