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.

Recline and Relax

Todays card is another that I have made for the fantastic challenge over at the Gruffies and Guests Challenge blog. This card is my second for the design team for this months challenge which has the theme of Summer. As most of you know I just love the Hoppers and so this card features a hopper relaxing in the heat.I mounted the image and the backing paper onto some holographic card. I created the border using holographic, to which I added some backing paper and some fish and duck which I cut from the backing paper. I then added some glitter glue to the border and a little on the water.I just love the way that the hoppers tummy is acting as a table for his cool drink.

I was lucky enough today to take Reg out in the sunshine. It was raining heavens hard when I woke up this morning and I thought that I would be getting rather damp. After all if I didn't take Reg out in the wet..he would never get out living here in the But by the time I'd fed the cats, it was all clear outside. So instead of a wheel in the rain, we had a lovely wheel in the sun with a bit of a breeze. I have to admit to panic stations in the house this morning...Jeffrey was missing. I rang round everyone to ask if they'd seen everyone checked their sheds and gardens..and he must have been somewhere he shouldn't be as he arrived home in a right temper..really put out...with only himself to blame. Since then he has remained in the dog

Well the coffee is calling..I hope you are having a great weekendand that the weather is being kind to you. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
