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.

Braver, Stronger, Smarter

Todays card is one that I made for the jb-crafting supplies design team.The flowers are designed by Adele over at Jiggery Makery. I used the flowers to decorate the frame that surrounds the words. The leaves are from the Signature die range and I coloured both using my copics.

I hope that you are all having a good day. I have already been visited by quite a few people today all wanting to share their memories of Henry. It has been a bit of an emotional rollercoster so I'm going to retire for the weekend. I keep getting phonecalls from people who are hoping to call in..and I'm looking forward to seeing them..hopefully I have enough

So with all this in mind please excuse me until Monday. I'm going to keep the coffee and tissues to hand and keep remembering to breathe..and then hopefully everything will be fine. I hope that you all have a fantastic until Monday..take care and happy crafting
