I have made two cards this evening. The first is a One Layer Card with a love theme. As the base card used is purple I used purple and yellow to stamp the hearts and sentiment to the bottom of the card front as these colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel. To finish the card I rounded all the corners.

Audio Book Review
Undead and Unwelcome by MaryJanice Davidson
The vampire king and queen have gone to return a body to the werewolf pack and are having to walk on eggshells to ensure a war does not ensue. They also find out that the vampire queen’s half-brother has an unnatural ability. Meanwhile, at home her half-sister is causing chaos due to her lineage to the devil (her mother).
The blurb on the back of this ne should be ignored as it puts you completely out of perspective and the book has nearly finished whilst you are still waiting for the ‘main event’ to happen. The main event in this book is the two separate colonies – one werewolf and one vampire. Sinclair and Betsy have to ensure that they can explain the death of one of the pack members well enough to the werewolves to prevent a war – especially as the werewolves are a close-knit family and vampires are not, so a war would be very one-sided. At home Laura, the sister, is harassed by devil-worshippers and so finds a way to make use of them – but not how Sinclair and Betsy would appreciate.
This is VERY Americanised and over-the-top, however this does make it humorous. There are ot really any suspense filled areas, but it is a light read (only five CD’s long). It gives you a brief background before the story starts, but this leaves many questions. It seems that there may be a prequel that needs to be read also. It is not a typical vampire and werewolf story, being a lighter read than most, and also turning many ideas on their heads. This is a good book if you like the less serious stories, however if you like your vampire stories to be full of suspense, then it is probably best to avoid this one.
