It's World Cardmaking Day!

Today is World Cardmaking Day! This relatively new holiday, it's only been around since 2006, is celebrated on the first Saturday of October. It's a day dedicated to the joy of making a greeting card by hand for the special people in your life. Store bought cards just don't have the same level of personalization and care that a handmade card does, so let today be your inspiration to try something new and make a card!
