Started by the very talented Sarah Hamilton of 'Sarah Hamilton Prints' and supported by the fabulous Mollie Makes and The Design Trust to encourage people to buy #justacard from independent stores or sites to help stimulate the growth of small independent businesses.

Just a small purchase like a card or print from a small independent retailer can mean you make some one's day, boost confidence and encourage artists going it alone to keep on going (yes, I speak from experience!) rather than just be another number on an order sheet of a big high street chain.

So go on, why not buy #justacard from a small business today? And make someone's day! I guarantee you'll find some truly beautiful art work out there once you start looking.

You can see my collection of hand illustrated cards right here , and follow this fantastic movement on twitter, just search for #justacard.

What do you think of this idea? Do you normally buy from independent retailers? Which one's are your favourites? I'd love to hear, just leave a comment below.
