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.

Vintage Anniversary

Todays card is the type of card that I really love to make..vintage. I don't know why this type appeals to me so much but I love the faded elegance of it all. My favourite era is the Edwardian one. There is something so glamorous and feminine about this era. This card is made using card from the Aspire range, lace and flowers from my stash and backing paper from the Age of Elegance cdrom by Joanna Sheen. It is a William Morris backing paper which I think suited the whole look of the card. The full range of items are available to buy from Julie at jb-crafting. You can find a link on the side of my blog. The die cuts leaves are from the Brittania Die range.

The weather here is perfect...sunny with a hint of a breeze. Todays wheel involved me, Reg and 4 cats. The cats spend the whole time running ahead and throwing themselves in every shady bit that they could find.When we reached the turnaround tree we were met by a horse. It was a beautiful caramel colour with a cream mane. It had been watching us for the last couple of days and obviously noted that we were always stayed a while at the tree and today decided to join us. So there we sat woman on wheels, one dog, four black cats and a horse. No wonder that the delivery drivers talk about Everyone stopped for a chat so a route that normally takes twenty minutes today took a hour and a half. That's what makes living here such a just don't know what a normal wheel will turn into.

I'm looking forward to crafting all weekend. A lovely new cd to play with...lots to look forward to. The only small cloud on my horizon is my memory. Due to the medication that I'm on at the moment, a goldfish probably has a longer attention I have put some craft goodies somewhere and no matter how I try to dredge my brain..I can't find them. I know that they must be within a 6 foot radius of my crafting corner but they continue to hide. I've also lost my inking brushes..four of them..they are also within the same area. I've come to the conclusion that there is a black crafting hole and my goodies are there.

Well the coffee is calling so perhaps that will help. So until I remember what I've forgotten take care and happy crafting.
