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.

Garden birds in the snow

Todays card is from the Joanna Sheen  Victorian Christmas Cards cdrom. There is a section of the cd that features different birds and this is one of those images. I have a lot of friends who are into bird watching and nature and they really like to get this kind of christmas card. I have glittered the image and made the embellishment to match. All the embellishment is made using Tattered Lace dies.
I'm still waiting for the parcel..but I know that it's on it's could be the next couple of days..everything is crossed. I just want to have a play. I have ordered some A4 embossing folders that I will share with you shortly...hopefully.I have seen some 8x8 embossing folders which look really useful which may be finding their way home to I make mostly 8x8 cards it will give me a chance to look very differently at the way I create cards. I've also recently purchased some dies that cut patchwork shapes and am really looking forward to having a play with all the little scraps of pretty paper that I have kept. As you do. So until tommorrow...take care and happy crafting
