Thank a Soldier cards

You know how I always want to thank soldiers when I see them, but I don't have the guts? I have a solution.

I made "Thank a Soldier" cards. They're like pass-along cards, made to give a little thank you to service men and women when you come across them.

There's a little space in the bottom to sign your name or your family's name, or to write a very small note.

I will keep one or two in my wallet with me, so I can pass them along when the opportunity arises. (Or have my son do it.)  :)

I made a sheet of 10 cards, saved as a PDF, that I would be glad to send to anyone who wants it. E-mail me at if you'd like the file.

What a lovely idea, Emily.

Hey, I don't know if you have seen my most recent post, but I am doing another giveaway, to showcase my blog friend's stores and shops. I don't know if you would be interested in participating or not. The next time I throw a party, I am totally ordering from you.

Probably one of the best ideas ever!

Wow, that's awesome.
I've never thought about that.
Shows what a classy person I am.

That is so fabulous! Seriously. Thoughtful. Can you send it to me? My husband and I try to write letters a few times a year but how neat would it be to have something to literally hand to people.

Hi Emily... I wanted you to know I'm posting tomorrow about a new plan I have to highlight soldiers... your post about your son and the soldier in the post office, as well as this one, played a huge part in inspiring me to action, so I link to you and reference you in my post. I hope you don't mind... if you do, just let me know. :)
