CARDS FOR OUR TROOPS

Please have a look on Dawn Bibby's blog for details on how to support our troops, both here and abroad, through making cards - our favourite hobby.

Dawn has set up a link with the forces, which I believe Rena is going to control, whereby we can send cards to her studio for sale and the proceeds will go support those lads and lasses who have been injured in service.

The other side to our support for the troops abroad is to make cards to send out so they can then send them home to their friends and family. After all, where are the card shops in Afghanistan?

I made Christmas cards last year and honestly they were some of the best cards I've ever made. I was so inspired by what I was doing and why. Just have a go and see what you come up with.

Fabulous Idea, Once I have finished my cards for Marie Curie, I will start doing some for the troops, I have so much stuff, that I can make cards "till kingdom comes!" LOL Avril xx

I know just how you feel. I sent 25 to the Marie Curie appeal but I need to finish the garden maintenance before I can start on troop cards with my 'mountainous stash!!!! xx
