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.

Cute as a Kitten

Todays card is using one tiny little topper from a kanban topper sheet. The sheet it self  has 11 little cat toppers, 3 sentiments and many little embellishments. A great sheet to have in your stash in case you need to have a card in a hurry. The little cats are just so cute and they would be suitable for many different types of cards. There is a wedding topper and a get well card topper which I'm dying to have a play with. I have used some backing paper from my stash and a small diecut backer with the topper on this card. The sheet itself is called Cute as a Kitten..Family Occasions.
I was hit by a shock this morning...the sun was shining...yes you heard it here first. The sun was shining in Snowdonia. For the first time since new year there was no howling wind or lashing rain. At the moment there is a slight drizzle but in the great scheme of things..what's there to worry about. I may even make a card today..or at least I have never been so long in getting rid of a bug..whatever type of bug this has dragged my creativity out of me and discarded it by the roadside. I admit to being one of these sad people that has to make at least one card every day..more often though..I have about 16 on the go at one time and dip in and out with plans for more whizzing round my head...but that's not been the case this week. Someone needs to put me in a bag and give me a good shake..I need to get back on form. Well at times like this I think back to what my Gran would have said...and what would she have said..she would have told me to suck it in, put  my big girl pants on and get on I
So lets get the coffee on  and let the new year crafting begin in until tomorrow take care and happy crafting
