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.

Fawn in the snow

Todays card is from Joanna Sheens Giordano Christmas cdrom.The backing paper is from an earlier Joanna cd and the embellishmentis made from the Signature die range and the Tattered Lace range. I put the embellishments on and then painted and glittered them.
Well it finally happened at 10.30 last night. It arrived. The it being my new Grand Calibur. I was so excited..I have only managed to have a little play and it was fab. I'm still trying to remember the plate order. It won't take long..I got to the point with my Cuttlebug that I didn't have to think. I have bought my first A4 embossing folder and it was great. I can see a hole arriving in my purse as I spot more embossing folders that I would like. I also bought some tonic dies..I've had a go and they were fabulous..a clean cut after only one pass through the machine. There are quite a few makes out there that I often want to throw through the end up making multiple passes and adding more shims and it still isn't a perfect cut. Not the case with the Signature die range or the Tattered Lace. Nor it seems with Tonic.
So I'm off to play. The weather here in Snowdonia is glorious..all the cats are outside. No doubt trying to terrorize the local's a quest that they are going to lose. The geese will put up with it for so long and then you will see cats fleeing. An angry goose is enough to make anyone run. I hope that you have a great day..take care and happy crafting.
