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.

Blossom repeated

Does it look familiar? It should's the same stamp as yesterday but I've used the same embellishments and a different backing paper. I made both cards for the fab team over at JB-Crafting Supplies. Even though lots of the same things have been's a different card. This is something I love to do..stamp and colour an image and then make 2 different cards. When making cards I love to try lots of different backing papers and see what different effects they give. For all the details of the image please have a look at yesterdays blog and have a look at the slight differences in the card. They both have the same image, mounted in the same way. The same lace,flowers and backing card.

And this card is one that I made using all the scraps of left over paper.I laid them in stripes onto another card and edged with peeloffs. I had decoupaged this figure of Boofle and thought it would be ideal. I'm going to add a greeting..I had thought that a 'Sorry I forgot your birthday' would be funny.So out of 2 pices of backing paper and 2 sheets of backing card and I've got 3 cards.

 Well it's a little cloudy in the mountains today. Yesterday was spent sorting my crafting boxes out. Two reasons really to why I entered into the was getting some boxes free in readiness for christmas crafting and the main reason was Jeffrey. The last week or so he has been an absolute has kept pushing my boxes over and then he looks at me as much to say..what are you going to do mother. He has driven me to I decided to stop his fun. Mean woman that I am.

The coffee is calling..but first I'm going to have to take Reg for a wheel. I wonder how many cats will come today. I'm hoping that I can make it while it's still dry. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
