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.

Todays card is another from the wonderful cd Waters Edge by Design House.This is another type of decoupage which they call side stackers. You build up the edges using strps of the image. What I love about this is the fact that you are only cutting straight lines, so if you need a card which has a bit more than a flat image but don't have much time then this is the ideal card for you. Again this card would be ideal for a man or a woman. It is very rare that I've been lucky enough to see a kingfisher in the they have always seemed very special to me.I just love this image.

I took Reg for a wheel today, joined by Rave and Tankie. There was no Jeffrey today..he is still sulking because I won't open the new dog treats. I have put the box on the floor..almost like a cat puzzle. He keeps going over to it and pushes it round the floor and then looks at me as much to say undo it mother..but I The way I see it he shouldn't have been so greedy with the gravy bones. It was a lovely wheel today but I know my skin has suffered.I have recently discovered that I suffer from vitiligo.(I probably spelt that and every time I go out in the sun I come out in brown neck is looking as if I've got a leopard print on it. The advice I've been given is to not go out in the sun but the sun comes here so rarely, I'm not going to miss The wierd thing about this condition is that in skin that's ok it gives me leopard print and any skin that's goes white. I have always said that I'm a freak of least I'm keeping the doctors busy.

Well the coffee is calling and I've got to get on with some serious work. I have a new cd to share with you soon but first I need to make some I hope that you are having a good day. It's lovely to hear from so many of you and the fact that you share your fabulous work with me, makes me feel really blessed.Thankyou. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
