Some Cards for the Troops
Having just found your website for sending cards to troops, I would certainly like to do this. Is it OK to send a few at a time to you or just in one bundle? **************************
Should this be OK then could I please have a postal address for forwarding.
I have stamps for the back of my cards to say " Handmade Just For You By Colleen" and another with "Handmade Especially For You By CMB". Is it OK to use these?
I am so pleased you have found my website and our drive to send Cards to the Troops. Thank you so much for your interest!
Yes, you can send the cards you make in whatever amounts and frequency is convenient for you.
Our postal address for sending is on the Cards for Troops page that I will link you to below, but I will write it for you here too:

And yes, it is perfectly fine to add your own acknowledgement stamp to the back of your cards. That would be lovely. I think we paper crafters should all do that if we can, though I know some crafters won't have a stamp for their own label yet. As long as the cards are hand made, that is the important thing. The military has specified that they do need to be hand made. I have loved sending some that older children have made for them. I think it must remind them of their own families to see something made by a child as well.
If you would like to read more about the drive, I have more information for you on this Cards for Troops
Thank you again for being willing to make and donate cards for our troops! I know they do appreciate us doing this for them each year. It brings a little touch of home to them when they are serving on foreign soil where the task of finding greeting cards can be so hard for them.
