Australian Simply Cards Issue 44

When I was at CHA last winter my friend Martha introduced me to a couple of nice ladies from Practical Publishing, an Australian company that publishes a card making and a scrapbooking magazine. Several weeks after I got home I got an email asking me to write an article and makes some cards for them -- and I couldn't refuse! 
I was so excited when the issue came in the mail the other day -- not only did I have a 6 page article and 2 cards with step-outs....
but I had the FRONT Cover as well! So excited and honored that they asked me to participate in their beautiful magazine -- a huge and heartfelt thank you to Tina Horton and Mandy Collins! 
I have quite a few students from Australia that I'm excited to share this news with! 

That's all for today -- lots to do and a short week to boot! Thanks for stopping by -- hope you have a wonderful day!
