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.

The Black Cat

Todays card is a very plain card for me but I felt that the image was so beautiful with so much detail that I added nothing apart from the glitter. The image is from Magical Christmas Moments from cupcake crafting..which is now Creative Crafting World. Their site is well worth a look..I've bought some really fab cds from there as well as having some really good deals on card. I have to say that on this cd there is not one image that I wouldn't be happy to use and in fact, I think that I have.
 As most of you will know by now, I'm a big cat and dog fan..I always have been..and just can't resist a lovely image.At this very moment I'm being walked over by one of my cats..they really do like to be involved in everything you do. And another one has just jumped over my shoulder! Of course as far as they are concerned any time spent doing anything that doesn't involve fussing them is a waste of time. The worst time I have is when it's raining and I'm crafting...they can drive me crazy. Being disabled I have made myself a crafting corner by the window which gives me a view of the mountains and where I can watch the changing seasons. I have the window open most days and now the cats think that it is the biggest cat flap in the world. They go in and out by the window onto the studio roof (my parlour is upstairs by the way), down the holly tree and into the wild world. And then they come back. On warm days they all stretch out on the studio roof. All day they go back and to..always checking what is going on...they're so scared of missing something.
I'm still excited about the arrival of the Grand Calibur..I've had abother email stating that it should be here within the next 24 hours..we shall have to see. Keep your fingers crossed for me. So wherever you are I hope you have a great day..take care and happy crafting.
