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.

Thankyou Flowers

Todays card is from the Joanna Sheen cdrom One Summers Day. I was looking for a simple image to put on a thankyou card and just loved this one. I have mounted the image and the matching backing paper onto some gold mirror board. The only decoration I have added is some banner diecuts. The die is from the Signature die range from Joanna Sheen

I spent a lot of yesterday printing loads of images and backing papers out, in readiness for a few hours crafting.I have a new disc to work with for one of my design teams and orders for a lot of cards. I'm feeling quite calm today and am itching to begin. For the team over at jb-crafting supplies I will working with the new Crafters Companion cd....Halcyan Days. There are some really beautiful images on there that are very different from what I normally work I'm really looking forward to that. To me the colours are the very essence of summer and there is something really nostalgic about them. Images that manage to remind you of childhood summers and days where the sun seemed to shine all the time. We know that it didn't but our memory remembers the sunny days and good times.

Luckily for me today was another sunny time for dog wheeling. Yet again we caused a road seemed that everyone I knew arrived one after another. And a car stopped that I didn't even know the driver but he said that he loved the fact that the cats came as well. We were met again by the horse...mind you I think actually it should be called a pony. The cats are slowly getting used to it's presence.

The soundtrack for today is Paloma Faiths 'Only love can hurt like this' I just love this song and keep playing it. My taste in music is very strange...I like lots of different types...Van Morrison,.AC/DC, Nickelback, and Jim I have always been a softie and loved a good all depends what mood I'm in   and just lately it's been really moods are up and I don't know what I'm going to end up listening to. Tomorrow it could either be a bit of Avenged Sevenfold or a bit of Motown...we shall just have to wait and

Well the coffee calls...I hope that you have a fabulous weekend..take care and happy crafting.
