Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Baby cards

Two baby cards. Both the same but very different. One very traditional in it's colours and image and the other different colours to the norm and a modern image. Which to choose?
The first one is using an image from the Joanna Sheen Precious Petals cdrom. The second is another Joanna Sheen cdrom called Baby Love.
The tiny flower border on the pink card was made using the pinflair punch. I cut lots of little flowers and leaves and then created the strip. I also made some for the corners of the image.
This is what I love with cd crafting you can use the image alongside so many other crafting ideas. You can add as much other detail or not depending on the card you want to achieve.
I'm about to play with the new Joanna's called The Age of Elegance. It has wonderful images on it especially those of Rosetti and Waterhouse. And the amount of backing papers of William Morris are just to die for. It has got to be one of my favourite eras and I really didn't know which to pick to print first. So watch this doubt there will be a couple arriving on this blog soon. Happy Crafting.
