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.

Pink Tangle

Todays card is a design team make for JB-Crafting Supplies. It features a flower design by Adele at Jiggery Makery.I have blown up the original design and then coloured it in various shades of pink using my copics. I then zentangled over parts of the design and added a huge gem to the middle. I have had those gems in my stash for quite a while..just looking and stroking you I mounted the flower onto some white card and then onto some pink holographic card. This in turn I mounted onto the base card, added some peeloffs and the greeting.

Well today is a strange sort of day..both in the physical and head wise. This coming weekend is Henrys Midgestock...a music festival in the village to raise funds for Henrys memorial fund. We are hoping to raise enough money to get 2 difibulators for the village and also a bench in Henrys memory. A lot of people are coming from all over the country and there is going to be a picture of Henry going to be unveiled in the Shiloh (which is our village community centre). I'm very touched that this is all going ahead and hopefully going to be a permanent memorial to Henry in the village.People have been so kind and have showed their friendship in many many different ways. But for whatever reason today feels really hard...I can't put my finger on what is the matter but I feel completely drained. I think sometimes I just carry on and then all of a sudden it catches up on me. I reckon I need a good kick up the

So as always..everything will be better after a good cup of until tomorrow take care and happy crafting

  1. Todays card is great, I love the zentangled image.

    I think you are expecting a bit too much too soon from yourself-take things easy! I decided that I didn't want to go out much after Mum died & i've given up my charity commitments as I was finding it all too much on top of work. I go out one evening to my slimming class & thats it which suits me fine.
