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.

Happy New Year

Hello everyone...after a wonderful christmas I'm back. And I have to say that I've been twitching to come back. I tried to have a little break from card making but I have to admit that it didn't work. By boxing day I was twitching, with a need to make some of the cards that I have been thinking I am so excited to be on three design teams for this coming year...there are some fabulous crafters on the teams and I'm really excited to be working with them. I hope that you all had a great christmas and that 2014 will bring you all health, happiness and good times. It was really strange not to be blogging..even though I only began last year, it seems that it has always been part of my life now. Thankyou all so much for all the messages..your support and encouragement has been a joy. There are still things that I am hoping to my adventure will continue. Twice a month I will be featuring christmas cards as part of my work for the christmas fun challenge I will get to play with snowflakes all year round. With the gruffies and friends, I intend to try as many happy hopper cards as I can...along with the house mouse and the gruffies of course. And finally with jb-crafting supplies you will be sharing a varied collection of cards...they will be different every month. I'm just so excited.
For todays card I decided to share a card kit from Kanban. The pack had 2 separate toppers and a backing sheet. This card features a strip decoupage. I have aded nothing but 3 card this is a great quick card to have in your stash. This was made on my favourite size card..8x8. I don't often use card kits myself but thought that I would share some that I thought were great quality and handy to have.
Well as always the coffee is calling. Thankyou for all your support during the last year..I hope you will continue to share my journey and we'll see what fun we can have along the way.So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
