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.

Thankyou Flowers

Todays card is another from the wonderful One Summers Day cdrom brought to us by Joanna Sheen. I have used this image lots of times, particularly for thankyou cards. The mirrored ivy flourishes are from Joanna Sheens Signature die range. This die range is one that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend as it does what it supposed to do...cut cleanly..with no bother. I have tried lots of different ranges and some are just a pain..they won't cut and when they just can't get the die cut out. The backing paper is from the cd and I have used a purple card to mount it on. Just a simple card but I think it's lovely.

It's raining heavens hard today. We went for a wheel and got soaked...but Reg really doesn't mind the wet. My old dog Hilly absolutely hated the rain..if you took her out ..she would just stand rooted to the spot and refuse to move. Not one step would she take. Many a time she had to be carried back when it started to rain whilst she was

Today has already had one shopping didn't arrive. The little tesco man telephoned to say the van had broken down...oh coffee. They have rang to say that it will be later..much please keep your fingers crossed that I will get a caffeine hit later in the day. And hopefully I will get lots of lovely salad for tea tonight. Just lately I have so been into salad...I've had to have it every night. Henry was a bit of a meat and potatoes man and would put up with salad once a week but no more...he used to say I'm not a rabbit Mother. It always made me laugh. Looking at my diet lately, I seem to be going into a fish and salad phase. I'm hoping for plaice tonight....we shall have to see.

So I'm off to have a nice cup of tea...I can't even have a biscuit thanks to So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
