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.

Tangled flower

Todays card is made using a design from the wonderful Adele over at Jiggery Makery and is featured as a project for the design team over at JB-Crafting Supplies. For this design I enlarged the digi image and then I zentangled the petals. I love doodling like is one of the few times that I'm I have mounted the flower onto some black glitter card and then matted that onto some plain black card. I'm thinking of doing something similar but using colour...if I do it, I'll post it when I've finished it.

What a day it is today. The wind is roaring round the valley. I took Reg for a wheel and I think I covered most of the ranges of weather in half an hour. During the wheel we got bright sunshine, strong winds, rain that hammered down, followed by hail. It was that heavy that poor Reg squealed. Now for those of you that don't know Reg that well..he is a bit of a big girls blouse..and can squeal like a I have to say that I nearly squealed hit very hard. We virtually got blown back to the house. At the moment the sun is shining and there is hardly a breeze. I've seen on the news that some areas are really suffering with the tailend of the hurricane I count myself lucky that the weather is as it is. Wherever you are I hope you are safe and dry. It's got to be the right sort of day to stay in and craft.

I had a lovely weekend with lots of crafting and some lovely visitors. I've so many ideas going round my head at the moment, I've decided that I need to go with the flow Lets hope that I can get all the ideas out of my head and onto the cards.

Well the coffee is calling, the wind has picked up and I have cats running in the window. I think that the wind ruffles their fur and sends them a little crazy. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
