Cards for the forces

I came across Emma's blog yesterday ( how, I can't remember ) but it instantly struck a chord with me as my dad spent 28 years in the RAF................and yes, I changed school 15 times !!!! Any how, here is Emma's message

After the wonderful response to our Christmas cards for the troops plea and after much discussion with Tina, Sarah and everyone else we have decided to offer some blog candy for this very worthy cause...As some of you have already started making your Christmas cards...do you fancy making a spare one for the Troops in Iraq or Afghanistan? All you need to do is make an extra one...leave it blank inside so a member of our fantastic Forces can send it home to a loved one.Everyone that sends a card to me to forward on to SOS will have their name put into a draw for a huge bag of ribbons from craftyribbons.co.uk. Send two cards and you get your name in twice!If you would like your name putting in the draw then drop me an e-mail and I'll tell you where to send them.All cards need to be received by the beginning of October.So girls...start spreading the word and lets give our boys and girls some Christmas cheer.

So peeps, if you can help please do, not only will it please Emma but our boys and girls overseas will be chuffed too! You can visit Emma's blog for the details. Oh and I almost forgot, she is very kindly offering blog candy too :)

Thanks for reading.
