Book Review-Aiming for Love

29 Sep

Aiming for Love was written by Mary Connealy, and is book one in the Brides of Hope Mountain series.
Summary: Josephine Nordegren knows little of the outside world. Well, she knows plenty about the forest surrounding her Colorado mountain home-how to hunt for food, take care of animals and plants, and survive the bleak winters. But as far as other people, she has only her two sisters for company-as well as the dire warnings handed down to them from their long-since-past grandparents.
So, when cattlemen move their herds up into the mountains close to the sisters’ home, Jo is more than curious about these new strangers. She feels drawn to learn as much as possible about the outside world.
But have the newcomers brought trouble with them? Will Jo and her sisters remain safe, or were their late grandparents right after all, and outsiders only bring death and destruction?
My Thoughts: This was a fun book. The author did a really good job portraying characters that had not been exposed to people outside of their small circle-down to the finest details about how they would act.
The sisters have some pretty unique mannerisms from their sheltered life that cause plenty of misunderstandings on both sides. This made for a very interesting and entertaining story, and I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
Oh, and can I just say-how gorgeous is this cover? So, so beautiful, and I think it really captures the essence of this book.
I would like to thank Bethany House for providing me with a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!
*Please note: This book will be released on October 1, 2019.

Card Monday-A Birthday Card!

9 Sep

Well, I had an idea for this card, and even though it didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted, The Little Guy still enjoyed it for his sixth birthday, so that’s all that really matters, right? 🙂
I knew as soon as he told me he wanted a dinosaur birthday, that I would be using Lawn Fawn’s Rawrsome stamp set and dies, and that’s just what I did.
Here is the card I came up with:

Supplies: Dies and Stamps: Lawn Fawn; Cloud Stencil: My Favorite Things; Markers/Pens: Sharpies, Spectrum Noir, Signo, Wink of Stella

Lots of stamping and die cutting on this one, and of course plenty of Wink of Stella too. I am really glad he liked it, and it was fun to break out some new-to-me stamps and dies and that cloud stencil.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #60

Simon Says Stamp Stamp It Challenge

That’s it from me today-have a happy Monday!
