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.

The Happiness Birds

Todays card is one I made for the design team over at jb-crafting supplies.It is another from the wonderful Halcyan Days cdrom by the team over at Crafters Companion.This was a really simple card to make..I only mounted the image onto a toning card. It was an 8x8 size card. I just love the image of the two makes me smile. What a great card to send to someone who just needed a lift. I have taken a second photo of the image so you can see just how much detail there is.

It is the work of Abigail Mill...a lady who creates these wonderful nostalgic images with material and machine embroidery..I'm so envious of her talent. I'm very tempted to have a go myself and I know that Julie at jb-crafting supplies has some really wonderful material stock in her shop. All this inspiration from one cd.

Today the weather here is fantastic and I really enjoyed taking Reg for a wheel. We managed to have a run today...the cats couldn't keep up. It put a smile on my face because when Reg was running he looked as if he was laughing the whole time. When we got to turnaround tree we were joined by 3 very disgruntled Obviously they didn't appreciate the unexpected speed of my cats has begun to throw herself down in front of the looks so funny..she does it every few steps..I've come to the conclusion I need a snow plough attachment for the chair which will scoop her up before there's an Because the weather has been so nice..somedays it feels as if I have no cats..they have all been outside enjoying the weather..but at the first sign of rain..they all come streaming back.

Well the coffee I hope that you are having a good day.I have lots of plans for this I'll be sharing as I go along. I've also blogged today on the jb-crafting supplies blog..if you get the chance why not pop over and have a look. Also if you have a moment pop over to the jb-crafting facebook page and see all the fantastic goodies that are available. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
