Come join in our Summertime postcard swap! We will put up a separate thread for August (mid July). Please keep this thread focused on July's mail   : ) 

How will this work? Pick out a postcard from your travels or hometown. Should you live in a small town or for whatever reason not have access to a store bought postcard, have fun making your own, of course :) You can print out a picture (either an image or photo you have taken) and paste it onto a half sized sheet of cardstock paper--instant postcard. Of course, a regular note card is welcome, too. On the backside, greet your swap partner with a story related to your (for this month July's) Summertime fun and perhaps how that relates to the card you chose. Please remember, there is no one way to go about this, just that it brings cheer to all participating and of course everyone feels welcome to join in, which you sure are! 

Please sign up in this thread or PM me by Tuseday, June 27th . Mona and I will pair everyone up asap and let you know your match. To expand the fun and also places you will get a postcard from, pairings will be changed each month. This is why I do ask that you sign up each time in the current month's thread. P.S. We ask that your match receives their card from you before the end of the month--so for this  swap, by the end of July.

Have some summer fun!  --Jeanne

Sorry about the divided smile face in the OP.  It shows up all together on the previous line when I submit, but shows up differently here!  I even tried removing some spaces and it didn't fix it.

Thanks, Jeanne so much for heading this up and posting. To everyone, sorry I have not been around much this week. I have been busy at church with first week of camp. I am so beyond thankful God has called me to my church and that I get to serve Him through it and this summer with kids, they are precious. 

Kimmy, love the VA postcard :)

Thank you Jeanne for the postcard.  I love Savannah!

I recieved another postcard but it had gotten wet and I can't read the signature.  I know it is from Illinois (at least I think so) because of Country Bob's sauce.  The balloon fest would have confused me because I always think of Albuquerque, where I was born for those festivals.  Thank you to the mystery person for the cherry postcard.  (Update)  Connie let me know that she sent this postcard.  Thank you so much.
