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.

The Peeping Owl

Todays card is from the wonderful Pollyanna Pickerings British Wildlife dvdrom. It was brought to us crafters by the wonderful team at Creative Crafting World. There is not one image that I wouldn't use...they are all so stunning. And I cannot stress just how much there is on this dvd...backing papers, inserts, borders, flowers and embellishments. I mounted the plain coloured topper onto some gold mirror board. The backing paper was also mounted onto some of the gold. I diecut some ivy leaves and coloured them with copic markers. I think that this card would be suitable for anyone and for any occasion..

I'm sitting here thinking about what I want to craft today. I have orders to do and a pile of toppers that I have printed and I don't feel like doing any of that. I was so uninspired today I polished the furniture, hoovered the top of the house and sorted my flowers. You can really tell when the going is getting tough..I clean house. Reg, my dog isn't very keen on the hoover..but most of the hoovering that needs to be done is because of him..I've come to the conclusion that my carpet is like dog velcro..everytime Reg lies on the carpet he leaves a little tuft of hair. I think that I may do the orders...sometimes when my mojo is having a wobble..just beginning something is the best way.

Well the coffee is calling I'll make a brew and get crafting.So until tomorrow..take care and I hope your crafting goes well.
