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.

Bebunni Birthday Wishes

Todays card is from the fabulous Bebunni Birthday Papercrafting cdrom brought to us by Crafters Companion. It is a double cdrom and is packed with lovely images. I shall be sharing lots of information and lots of cards on the jb-crafting supplies blog as it my featured cdrom for the next few weeks. This card is one from the mini kits on the cd. I have added one of the borders and some die cut bunting. I'm afraid that you will be seeing the bunting quite a bit as it is my favourite at the moment. It is from Joanna Sheens Signature die range and I adore the way that it cuts so beautifully. The backing paper is from the design sets on the cd.
Today in the mountains, it is a case of battening down the hatches.The wind is roaring and the cats are dodging the hail. Every so often I look out of the window and the whole world has gone white. And then 3 minutes later it's all disappeared. To add to the fury we have also had great thunder and lightening. It must be something about the area but my friends keep getting struck by lightening. One of them was mopping her kichen floor by an open back door and she got struck on the arm. It just goes to show how little we are as human beings against Natures fury. And as I speak more hail has arrived. A good day to stay in and craft I think.
I was so happy when the postman arrived today as I had run out of glue. Now to a normal person it wouldn't have been such a problem but to me as a crafting addict it was a calamity. I found myself almost twitching  and of course you have so many ideas when you can't do them. But today the happiness has arrived..lots of new glue and new ink for the printer. Isn't it strange what small things make us happy. Every day I see people that want so much and I must seem very boring compared to them. As long as the bills are paid,there is food in the cupboard and the animals are all well..then I'm happy. Oh and as long as I have I can create..what more could I want or need. I was always told to count my blessings and I do. I am truly blessed with Son,all my animals and close friends and I live in a beautiful the counting is always easy.
Well the coffee calls as always and there is new glue to be So the afternoon will be filled with crafting until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
