Happy World Cardmaking Day !!!

Good morning and Happy World Cardmaking day! To celebrate this wonderful occasion La-La Land Crafts are previewing their new release stamps which will be available to pre-order from today and have an expected ship date of October 15th. This whole collection are just too cute for words and I absolutely adore them all.

Just a little info about World Cardmaking Day... 
World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on.

Celebrating its fifth year in 2010, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It's a day for the card-making community -- hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers -- to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making.

I love Autumnal colours, don't you?! It's my favourite crafting season so I just had to have Autumn Marci. 

As always, I used copic markers to colour my image....
