Several months ago I posted a tutorial video for creating an Explosion Card. In that video, I mentioned that I had broken the tip of my bone folder and asked you to ignore how it looked. Nan Robkin left the following comment on that post:

Thanks for the fantabulous art tip, Nan! I'm delighted to pass it on!
Thanks for stopping by!
