This is to all our wonderful cardmakers who are supporting the Christmas cards for our armed forces this year. I have had a couple of questions about glitter, which I redirected to the Dept of Defence and was told that glitter on our cards is ok.
I was wondering where I'd heard that it might be a problem - I actually said no glitter myself at one stage, and maybe I dreamt it or something!! You know how it is, sometimes we get so busy we can't sort out what we thought happened from what really happened! I also think that could be the curse of the blog surfer. I know that I read so much info that it can get all muddled up until I don't know who said what to whom!
Anyway, for us Aussies, glitter is ok. However, and this may be where the confusion lies, there is a U.S. website called Operation Write Home. It specifically says NO to glitter. But that applies to their military forces, so please don't be confused about ours. Also, if you make cards for OWH you are not making them for the Australian Military. This is not a problem, but you might not know it. It's getting more and more difficult to know where a website originates now that our world is becoming smaller with all the cyber stuff available.
Meanwhile, whoever you make them for, the recipients thank you. A random act of kindness is always welcomed.
