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.

A Wolf for Henry

Todays card features this fabulous wolf and is from Pollyanna Pickerings World Wildlife cdrom brought to us by the great team over at Creative Crafting World. I just had to make this card...Henry would have adored it. He always has an absolute passion for wolves. One of his favourite books when he was little was Little wolfs diary of daring deeds. His favourite game was to pretend to be a wolf. He had a waistcoat which was grey and slightly furry when he was about 5 and he said that he felt more like a wolf when he put it on.He was so upset when he grew out of it...I found it the other day and I intend to put it into a frame. Such good memories. As it turned out we discovered that our family crest features a collared Henry was really made up with that.

The card was simple to make. Just mounting the image and the backing paper onto a toning  card.The cd features lots of different backing be honest..I just can't believe just how much is on this cd. Even the ribbon border was one of a selection on one sheet.I am finding it so hard to write this blog today..thanks to Rave..who wants to sit on the computer.She wanted to sit in front of the easel as I took pictures as well. I think I need one of those papoose things..she would be so happy to be strapped to me all day. She really is a little homebody and demands to be right by me at all time. Bless her furry black feet...but typing around a little cat bottom is quite

No cats came with Reg and me today...and to be honest I don't blame them. It was hammering down and the wind was so strong..we kept getting blown And as I'm a very large lady...believe me it was a strong wind. When I got back..Jeff was demanding treats..I told him he wasn't even damp so he would have to wait.

Well the coffee is calling and I intend to spend a couple of hours sorting out my next bunch of crafting ideas and planning for next week. So take care and happy crafting
