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.

Boofle...and Reg

Todays card is featuring one of my favourite characters..Boofle. The image is from the Docrafts digital designer. The cd is so easy to use and there is just so much on it. There are papers, decoupage and templates...just so much to play with. I loved this image of him holding the roses. I layered the image onto the dotty paper, then onto pink card and finally onto one of my patchwork backgrounds. I know I said that I wasn't going to do any more patchwork for a while but I had already made this background and then I noticed that it had the same dotty paper included in the I just had to use I was so impressed with cd though..the images were so clear and really easy to size. Some cds just confuse me...when you see the sample cards they are beautiful but when you come to do it need to have knowledge of graphic programmes to get the best results and that's not me. I use cdroms most of the time and I love the crafting elements that I can bring to try and enhance the image. I don't want to spend all my crafting time on a computer. But as I said this cd is really easy and in fact it's a pleasure to use.

I took Reg for a wheel today and I think that he has just had enough of the heat. The last few days he hasn't known what to do with himself. He spends his day going round and round the house trying to find the coolest place. His best spot seems to be by the fridge..followed by the bathroom floor. The cats are all doing well and I hope to let Milky out tomorrow. Tank is going to take a little longer but I have to say that they have both perked up

I've been cardmaking since I got up and am loving every minute of it. I watched the team triathlon earlier and sat here making up some decoupage while it was on. I have to say it's drying really surprise there. I'm sat in front of the fan again and the breeze is wonderful. And I'm off to do some more cardmaking this afternoon. I'm feeling very virtuous today because last night I managed to do some for tonight a quiche is waiting to go with salad and I've managed to make some raspberry coconut slices for pudding. Scones have been made as well.

Well the coffee is I may be having a scone with it. I hope you are managing to keep cool and are having a great weekend.So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting

  1. Lovely card-Boofle is great isn't he? The picture of Reg is nice.

    Its been very hot & airless here and we are on the coast. Was meant to be going to a craft demo at Inspirations but I cancelled at the last minute, glad I did considering how warm the day has been.
