It was my turn to pick the challenge theme over at MAWTT this month, and I thought as we will soon be having lots of fireworks for bonfire night, then bright on dark was a good theme for the month.
Please see the next post for another couple of cards using this stamp set (I wanted to make 3 different cards).
I also have a book review for you:
Kismet by Amina Akhtar
Ronnie is an American Muslim who
was born and raised in New York. When her parents died she was left with her
aunt, who wants to keep the traditional ways of doing things as this means she
doesn’t have to raise a finger herself. Ronnie could not see a way out of this
until she met Marley. Marley is a wellness and spirituality fanatic who
convinces Ronnie that she knows how to enable her to have a better life. Ronnie
chooses to sell her house and move to Sedona with Marley. Sedona is a large
tourist attraction for those who are interested in the Earths natural energies,
and crystals etc.
Slowly Ronnie and Marley’s
relationship starts to deteriorate, as Ronnie realises she doesn’t like the
same things Marley does, and Marley finds a new friend who can get her the
attention she desires. Also, shortly after they arrive in Sedona bodies start
turning up, of people that are not very much liked within the community.
Furthermore, Ronnie is having strange dreams, which she believes are the cause
of the ravens that she is feeding in the area.
Can Ronnie make the relationship
work? Who is killing people and why is Ronnie dreaming about the murders before
they happen? Who can be trusted in Sedona? These are questions that you are
asked throughout the book and the story is very well written. There are
certainly some unexpected twists at the end of the book. It is a little
over-the-top in a lot of places, but a good light-hearted thriller
