Circus Animals

Here’s my big news – I’ve been published!  I am so so so very excited that my cards were accepted by Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.  And even more fabulously (is that a word?)  these cards are doing a little tour with the Craft Expo  and will be travelling around Australia & New Zealand!  I just noticed that I made the cover of the mag… could my day get any better!

Don’t you just love these colours, this paper pad would have to be one of my favourites (I think I say that about all October Afternoon papers), and aren’t those animals just too cute!  I hope you like them as much as I do. 

Hooray It's Your Day
