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.

Watching and waiting

Todays card is another from the fabulous 'Magical Christmas Moments' by Creative Crafting World. I love this image, which of course I just had to glitter. The only embellishment that I've added is some die cut snowflakes. This cdrom really lives up to it's is full of really magical images that you could use at christmas for many years to come.
Today in Snowdonia, the weather is confused to say the least..we are changing from roaring wind to hard rain to brilliant sunshine..all in the space of 15 minutes.As I look out of my window I can see the changing colours of Autumn. The leaves are falling, making a natural patchwork on the ground. Even the mountains are changing colour. One of the best colours in the year is in bluebell time when the mountain is swathed in bluebells. The whole mountain becomes a blue purple and you can't take your eyes off it. At the moment the mountain is showing browns, oranges, greens and purples...making me want to use those colours in my card making. We shall have to see what I can come up with.
For some reason my mind is drifting towards the challenges that I keep seeing online. I have already entered my first and that has given me the urge to enter some more. It's all part of my blogging journey I suppose. As you move along you learn new things all the time and when you master one new thing you feel brave enough to try something else. I must admit because I'm not good at all with computers I do get more than a little stressed but I keep telling myself to keep calm. But I'm still loving the journey and I love the fact that I get to share it with you.
I have a lot of cards to finish today so I'd better go and do some work. But as first. So I hope that you're having a good day and that you will consider creating your own blog. Believe me it's a fantastic journey to begin. Let me know if you do start a blog of your own and I'll follow you online..shaking my pom poms and encouraging you on your journey. I have had some really fantastic messages about my blog..thankyou all. So now the kettle has boiled..take care and happy crafting
