Supporting Our Troops - The Crafty Way!

Hello again!

My hubby and I do alot of work in connection with supporting our troops through our business.  My hubby volunteers alot of his time to help the charity Afghan Heroes at various shows and events.  Whilst reading through the blogs that I follow last night I discovered on the lovely Helen's blog a link.  With excitment I clicked the link and finally discovered a way that I can help!!

There I found a website that is requesting handmade cards to send out to the troops for them to send onto their loved ones back home - Support Our Soldiers

Without delay I spent most of the night making up some cards to send.  They did take a bit of working out as I wanted to keep them as simple as possible so not only are they suitable for everyones taste, but they can be posted without being damaged (as they will have clocked up alot of airmiles by the time Christmas comes around).

I blew the dust off my Christmas stamps from last year - Anitas Clear Stamps - Magical Christmas and got stamping, I then used my water colours to add a little colour and just added the ribbon to finish off.  I wanted to leave them quite plain that way they can add as many messages as they like even to the front.

I truely feel this a fantastic cause and I love to show my support to all the brave heroes and if you are able to help then that would be great.  There are some guidelines so if you click here it's all explained.

Well I'm off to post my parcel of cards

Thank you for visiting.

See you soon
Love Em x

That's such a nice idea Emma, and such a thoughtful thing to do! The designs you have created are really simple yet eyecatching, I reckon the soldiers are going to be made up when they get their hands on them!
