July
Cardmaker's Calendar

4th Independence Day
July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain
and Democracy was born. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate
that freedom and independence with parades, fireworks, barbecues,
picnics, and family gatherings.

Happy Birthday America!

7th Chocolate Day
Chocolate is America's favorite flavor.
I hear it said that "chocolate" is officially a vegetable... it comes from the Cacoa tree
found in rainforests! Need anyone say more...
Eat and stamp your day with chocolate!

15th Ice Cream Day
In 1984, President Reagan proclaimed July to be National Ice Cream Month...
the third Sunday of July is officially Ice Cream Day!
So whether it's real ice cream or a handstamped card... it will always
bring a smile to one's face!

22nd Parents' Day
As a child's first teachers, mentors, and role models, parents shape the character
of those who will help to build the future of our Nation.
On Parents' Day, we honor America's mothers and fathers and celebrate
the values that bind families from one generation to the next
and help define us as a Nation.
... lovely day to send a stamped creation celebrating our parents!
