Card Making in Ireland

Hi Everyone looking in,
I take it, you are here, 
because like me you have found the hobby,
 That is Card Making
I started this blog about 2 years ago, having had a website for nearly 4 years which got a virus, and I lost everything I had been working on,
So decided to Blog instead.
I would love to see as many links on my blog, to help other card makers, find everything they need for card making here in Ireland,
so much of our craft funds, leave the country, 
to England, America and Europe. 
I have lists of the Suppliers I use to buy my craft goodies from, in the right hand colomn, but very few are Irish,
So if you want to shout about your Irish, Shop, Club, Group, or Blog, then please get in touch,
Join me as a follower, it's easy, you need to register a free google account, by following the link, in the right hand column.
Then just email any news you want to share,
I will add pages to this blog as we go, and highlight any news or events you have to share,
I get up to 50/60 hits a day, but very few comments, 
so why not drop me a line, by adding your link, you will make new contacts, and crafty friends along the way,
lets make this the place to share card making in Ireland
Happy Crafting Yvonne
