Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are enjoying this long holiday weekend. Here in Maine it’s the official start to the tourist season and the weekend we begin opening up our summer homes and camps. And of course today is a day of barbecues, parades, cemetery visits and time to honor all the wonderful men and women who have served our great country.

It’s also time for a new Stamp of the Week! This week we’re featuring our 4317-E Birdhouse image. Check out all the great cards the Rock Stars have created to inspire you today!
