Hi everyone!  I truly apologize for being sooo far behind in this blog!  Life happened to me and I ended up directing a musical beginning in January and it is just a week after its close now.  As if that weren't enough, I'm in the middle of my summer teaching on top of everything else that I normally do, so my crating time has been....limited, to say the least!

With that said, I want to share some of the projects I created for the Platinum Scraps team while I conjure up some new tutorials, projects and ideas to share!  Thanks for your loyalty!

25 Cards In 25 Days: Numbers 10-14

Alright, I know I'm a wee bit behind in my posting, but you may have noticed that I altered the title of the post to reflect my new philosophy with this challenge.  As every crafter knows, some days you just aren't inspired to create anything.  For me, it may take days for me to come up with a design, but when I do, the creativity snowballs until I've created 4 or 5 cards in an evening.  So, I've altered my challenge to be 25 Cards in 25 Days: I have 25 days to post 25 cards, not necessarily a post everyday!

With that said, here is the next batch; only 11 more to go!

This one just came to me randomly.  I wanted to try making a pop-up card and this is what happened!

This is a very simple, but very effective card.  I thought that a simple fan-fold could make a good Christmas tree shape and the rest just came together.

I had a vision about this one in AC Moore as I was buying the grungeboard I used for the poinsettia!
