This month my theme is an oldie but goodie ...... explosion folds! Boy, oh boy, did I have a lot of fun making different explosion cards!  First the basic explosion card (on the left) and a  square explosion card (on the right).  Remember to comment on our blogs for a chance to win one of the new release stamp sets.  It's time to continue on to An'Jenic's blog to see her wonderful creations.
