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.

Rugby and Football

Todays cards are aimed at the men in your life that have a passion for football or rugby. I don't normally make this type of card but thought that it would be good to have a go. Most of the men in my life don't like sport in general...they will put up with my love for athletics but their interests are generally more off the wall. But in my cardmaking I do try to cover whatever people like. The two cards feature decoupage from sheets for the Anitas range brought to crafters by Docrafts. They have the wonderful borders included on the decoupage sheets. I added some corner flag peeloffs on the football card and some peeloff rugby balls on the rugby card. I asked a football fan what sort of embellishment he would like to see on a card and he came up with the idea of the corner flags.

It is a lovely day here in the mountains. I took Reg for a wheel and today we had a grand walk accompanied by Rave,Jeff and Pinky. It was so good to have Pinky back with our group and in her own special way she complained the whole We always hold up the traffic and today we only stopped two cars. At the moment all the cats are lay on the studio roof...all sunning themselves. It is not as hot as it was...thank goodness..there is a lovely breeze. I really am a cold weather woman...give me wind, rain and snow and I'm at a perfect temperature.

My plan for the next couple of days include working with a cdrom by Polka Doodles as part of my design team work for JB-crafting supplies. Also I need to make my design team cards for over at the Gruffies and Guests challenge blog. I also have an order to do for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. So it looks as if I have a busy week ahead of me. I love it when I have lots to do. It is one of the things that keep me going..a head full of card design ideas will help keep me sane. Well as sane as I can

Well the coffee is calling..and thank goodness I have a good supply. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
