World Cardmaking Day

Seeing as today is World Cardmaking Day I thought I better try and get a card made to celebrate the fact.I've been a bit uninspired recently and not been making much apart from a few commissions.Anyway,today I decided to just knuckle down and get on with making one.I bought some gorgeous new BoBunny papers from the Flutter Butter range at Craftology.If they don't inspire me nothing also found my EK Success Cutter Bee Bugs that had got buried under a pile of stash and used them for the piercing.They're fabby little tools and so easy to use.They come in single row,double row and zig zag.I'll probably use them now until I'm sick of

Cardstock - Core'dinations
Papers - BoBunny Flutter Butter
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen
Swirl Stamp - Studio G

Your card is beautiful Cass - the colours are perfect and the papers are so delish!
I can't believe what I've just seen actually...... I always faux stitch on my cards and sit painstakingly piercing tiny holes with a needle before joining them up with a pen...... I was going to put a post on my blog asking if anyone new of a tool that could do this for me!!! And there you are using the very thing I'm after, amazing!!! Could I trouble you to know where I can buy it from please?
Hugs Tara xx
