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 Traditional Moment

Todays card is using a topper from my stash..a very traditional card but it looks quite twinkly as I've added a glitter peeloff round the edge. Peeloffs have come so far since I first began crafting. I mostly use them as borders and love all the colours and glitter encased ones you can get now. I'm hoping to add to my stash in the new year.
The computer has been having a moment keeps freezing. But it seems to have gotton over itself now...just as well really as my computer man would have to give it a talking If anything should be complaining it should be my little printer..since August it has worked it's little socks off. If it thought that it was going to get a rest now the christmas cards are nearly finished then it's wrong. I already have orders for birthday cards and cards in general for next year.
For todays crafting delight I'm intending to make some over the top tags. I have some hopefully I can share them with you soon. It's so cold here with the wind blowing hard. It's raining off and on, so I'm expecting a group of wet cats anytime soon. Well the coffee is calling and so is the wrapping paper..I have still more to until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
