You are warmly invited to join our 3rd Birthday Celebration!
Founded in 2015 the JUST A CARD campaign goes from strength to strength, bringing designers, artists, shop owners and the wider public together for a truly thriving creative community.
To celebrate and build on this success, Just a Card is inviting everyone to participate in JUST A CARD week on 18 - 22 JUNE!
