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.

Farm Cat

Todays card is from a Joanna Sheen cdrom. I have glittered the snow..well I so love the glitter. A bit of a sparkle goes along way on a dull day. The cat looks a little like my cat Sprout. Sprout was a cat that was dumped at my door...well thrown at the door and knocked out. He was so scared and had suffered very badly at the hands of a human. He let me tend his wounds and joined our cat family. He has become such a happy little cat...he is still very nervous of strangers but with the family he has started to come for fuss. He loves the dogs and the other makes me happy to watch him. He was called Sprout because he arrived just before christmas. Back to the card..the embellishment is made using holly leaves and mistletoe dies from the Tattered lace range. The greeting is also from the Tattered Lace range. Well I'm off to look at some new images that I will be sharing with you next week. Wherever you are take care and happy crafting.
