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 Blossom Days

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous JB-Crafting Supplies. It uses a Sheena Douglas stamp from her little bit sketchy range. Ijust love this design of the blossom and feel that it would suit lots of different occasions. I mounted some backing paper from my stash onto some pink card and then created a small border from the pink as well. I stamped the image using my memento ink pad and then coloured it with my copics. I embellished with pearls and two types of pink flowers. I love making this type of card because it's my chance to go a little bit If you met me you wouldn't think that I had a girly bit to me but it's there..just hidden well. When I was a little girl I was extremely girly..dresses with rosebuds on, playing with my dolls..but then life happened and all of a sudden before I knew it I was punk and was as far away from pink rosebuds as you could

It's a dry day today here in the mountains. Most of the cats are outside apart from my best cat friend at the moment..Rave. For the past week she has not left me alone. Her favourite place to sit is between me and the computer...which is all very well, until you want to type. So as I type this I have put her on the wing of my chair and I can virtually hear her tapping her paw..waiting for me to There's alot of movement in the village of the holiday homes has decided to become a permanent let, so they are emptying the house. We can only hope that they are careful to who they let it to. I have lived through many, many tenants that move to the valley and then cause absolute chaos. I think alot of people forget just how long I've lived here and with some houses can go back through the last 6 owners. Really these days with some of them it's all about the money and they don't care about what the other village residents have to put up with.Don't get me wrong..there are some houses let and you can't find fault with the people that rent..but in the past there's been so many just makes you wary. We shall have to see how this one goes.

Well the coffee is calling and there is still lots of work to do. I hope you all had a fab weekend...I had lots of visitors and hence not many cards made. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting
