MIA

Sorry I have been MIA. I haven't done much cardmaking lately other than make cards for work. Plus, I have recently invested a lot of time researching e-readers. Call it a current obsession hobby.

I did make two cards over the weekend for Splitcoaststampers' latest Virtual Stamp Night (VSN). Of course, I forgot to post the cards on Splitcoast. Oh well. For those of you who haven't joined a VSN, you are given a challenge and have 45 minutes to complete the card. My group of friends and I have learned not to stress over the challenge and just go with something. Sometimes the finished card looks good. Sometimes it looks like it was beaten with the ugly stick. Often times, the simpler the card, the better. Hence, the card I posted above.

For today's card, the challenge was to use white, blue, and silver or gold. I thought the challenge was silver AND gold, so I added both. I stamped the image by Magenta onto white cardstock using blue ink. I then added layers of silver, blue, and gold cardstock. Really, really simple.

Here is a close-up so that you can see the metallic sheen:

On a separate note, does anyone own a Kindle or Nook? What do you think? I believe that the Kindle might be a better device, but I am leaning towards the Nook since it works with my library system.

Laura I have a kindle and love it. Got my hubby the original when it came out and he loves it as well. The screen allows you to do various sizes of type and you can also read in bright sunlight. Only wish they would have kept the price of the books at $9.99 or less. Guess you can't have everything.
