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.

Peeping Owl..second version

Todays card is another version of this fabulous image by Pollyanna Pickering. It is from her British Wildlife cdrom which is available from Creative Crafting World. On the sheet that you print out you get a number of different sized images and this was made with one of those. Even though it is a smaller still is of a suitable size to fit a larger card. In this case I've used a 7x7 card. The leaves were die cut and I coloured them using my copics. I just love the colours in the image and think this would make an ideal card for a man.

I was so lucky today when I wheeled Reg. We managed to go out and missed the rain. I was so annoyed with a car that had parked outside my house. I have enough trouble getting the chair over the camber on the road...but today with the way that this car was parked..I couldn't get in the chair until I was in the middle of the road. But I'm sure that these things are sent to try Reg was confused by the change in habit and got a little protective of me...he decided that he would be a husky today. He tried walking sideways in front of the chair..which then confused the cats who kept trying to get between Reg and me. If you had seen us you could have done nothing but must have looked as if we had never done it out

The athletics are on and I've got card ideas going through my head. I received some fantastic news last night but I can't tell you anything about it just yet....I know...but I promised. I should be able to share it with you in the next couple of weeks....until then you will just have to believe me when I say I have been happy dancing in my head ever since I got the news.My journey and adventure into the world of crafting just gets better and better.

Well the coffee is calling..I hope you have a fantastic until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
