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.

Boofle and Daisies

Todays card is another from the wonderful cdrom by DoCrafts Digital Designer.I used the large Boofle design as the main feature of the card and added a border of hessian and daisies. The hessian is proof that crafters never throw anything away that could come in handy on a card in the future..I've had that piece of hessian for at least 6 knew that I would need it some day. The backing paper is also from my stash and has probably sat in a box for a couple of years. I will now share the tale of the furry have a piece of furry paper in a leopard print design...I must have had this piece of paper for at least 12 years..every so often I get it out and stroke it..and then put it away again. I just love it so much I can't bear to cut it sad is that. But I know that one day it will be just what I need for a special card.

I don't know what happened yesterday..I was so busy and had so many visitors that I totally forgot to blog. All morning I was dealing with problems in sick bay. Tank is quite poorly but I think that we may have turned the corner..keep your fingers crossed. Yesterday Milky was declared fit to leave the sick bay and is happily walking round surveying her domain.But the biggest surprise happened on Saturday night. Pinky had been missing for about 6 weeks and I was so worried about her. I was beginning to think that something awful had happened. Well on Saturday night I was wheeling Reg on an evening stroll, when my friend that was with us said that there was a black cat across the field. Looking as hard as I could...I couldn't see anything. My friend said that it was running full pelt towards us. I didn't dare hope..but then with a huge mieow Pinky launched herself at me.She ran round the wheelchair making a fuss of Reg, Jeff and Rave and then landed on my knee. I have never been fussed quite so much..she was so talkative..obviously telling me her tale of woe. I think that either she had been shut in a holiday home or she had been taken by mistake out of the village. If she had been shut in a house..they must have just returned or if she had been taken from the village..she had just made it back. She has gone so thin that I have put her in a pen so she can be fed up and hopefully put some weight on. Saturday night though, she slept with me and had fuss most of the night. To tell the truth it nearly made me was obvious just how pleased she was to be home. I am so truly blessed with my animals. At the moment she has just finished her lunch and is now sleeping. Safe and sound and home..what more could I want.

This week from tomorrow I will be featuring cards for men..covering all the range including sports. I'm hoping that I will be able to come up with a number of different ideas. Please keep your fingers crossed.

Well the coffee is until tomorrow ( I care and happy crafting
