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.

Purple Handbag

Todays card is one that I have made for the design team over at jb-crafting supplies. It is a handbag shape..from a board in my stash. It is decorated using the fabulous anemone die from the team over at Tonic. The nice thing about this handbag shape is that the way that it is made allows you to actually put a small gift inside the handbag.

Please forgive me the fact that I wasn't able to blog over the weekend..but as I posted two of my cats had been badly injured and now we have a little sick bay set up in the parlour. Glad to say that they are making a great recovery...bless them..the only downside is that the whole room smells of disinfectant..tcp to be exact. I have set up the two pens and they each have a cuddly blanket, litter trays and a array of bowls filled with special little treats. At the moment everyone is asleep...mind you it is just so hot...I've had to put the fan on to keep it nice and cool for them.

As promised I have taken more pictures of the view that we have on our daily wheel. The two pictures below show the valley where we all live. I always feel totally blessed to live in such a beautiful place.

And of course there had to be a picture of one of the cat Below is a picture of Rave. She was the only one that came today. She seemed really happy today and purtled the whole way.

I have a lot of new cards to share with you this week and lots of orders to complete.And of course I'm looking forward to the Commonwealth games, which will starting soon. As far as I'm concerned it will be a perfect time..crafting in front of me and lots to watch. I just want to say a massive thankyou to everyone that messaged me over the past couple of has meant so much.

Well I'm glad to say the coffee is calling...I haven't run out yet but it may well happen. The more stress I have ..the more coffee I this weekend it has been on tap. But things are looking up. So until tomorrow..please take care and happy crafting.
