New Moon Blog Hop!

I had so much fun playing along with the Twilight Tuesday anniversary blog hop a few weeks ago that when I saw they were doing a New Moon hop I knew I had to join in the fun again! If you are just joining in, be sure to start back at the very begining (Twilight Tuesday blog) to take in the whole hop! If you got here from Donna's blog you are on the right path!

I have to tell you that New Moon was NOT my favorite book in the Twilight series. The first time I read New Moon I nearly ruined my book by soaking it with tears. There are several pages that are warped and wrinkled beyond repair from tears being dripped all over them. Even after reading and/or listening to the audiobook 6 times the heartbreak when Edward leaves does not get any easier for me. Every time I start to get close to that part in the book I get a huge lump in my throat. As I've clearly expressed before, I am forever Team Edward! When I read New Moon I was still on the Twilight Edward high (I had just read Twilight the day before - I was one of those 4 books in 4 days girls) and had no tolerance for anyone else. Then New Moon Edward ripped out my heart. I was so mad at Edward for leaving and then so mad at Jacob for...nothing...I was just mad. I wasn't thrilled about Jacob in New Moon..I actually did not like him one bit. BUT....after about my 4th time through the book I started to warm up to Jacob. I'm still team Edward but I can definitely tolerate Jacob. Since I showed my love for Edward in the anniversary hop I decided to show my like for Jacob in this one.
My card is simple because I figured Jacob wouldn't approve of a fancy, frilly card, LOL.

Thanks for stopping by today! Next stop on the hop is my stamping pal Jackie!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
