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.

A Cool Yule

Todays card is something a bit different for me. I was having a play and came up with this card. I have embossed the background paper with a snowflake design. The border strip across the middle is made using acetate and alcohol ink pens. The tree is a diecut from my stash which I painted with acetate and of course glittered. Finally I added a peeloff which I coloured green with an alcohol. I have made another one using a blue acetate border and layered snowflake

I hope that you like them. I am hoping to have a play again later today. I have an order for 25 christmas cottages which I'm hoping to get finished first. The other night was spent up to my ears in glitter. All 25 cottages needed to glitter..well by the time I'd finished I was covered, the cats and dogs were twinkling and the parlour floor looked as if a fairy party had taken place. Even now I'm twinkling in strange Everyone that visits knows that there is always the chance of leaving with a bit of twinkle. The vegetable delivery man had a lot of explaining to do one day..I laughed with his wife because he hadn't noticed the twinkle and had done all his round with the added sparkle. I do wonder what all the other customers
Today in Snowdonia it's been really quite cold and watching the hail bounce has kept the cats entertained. It comes in showers and then it's gone. We even had a rainbow in the middle of it all...stretched all over the valley. Well the coffee is calling and the cottages need to be finished. I hope that you are having a good weekend..keep warm and cosy..until tommorrow take care and happy crafting.
