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.

Playing with string

Todays card is from the Leslie Ann Ivory cd brought to us by Joanna Sheen. Being as cat obsessed as I am, it was a must have cd and I've used it ever since it came out. There is not a time when there is not an image to suit my mood. I loved this image of the ginger kitten rolling around. Theymanage to get themselves into unbelievable positions. I mountd the image onto some gold mirri, and mounted that in turn onto the backing paper. This card is A5 in size so you can see that this is a good sized image. I just added some string at the bottom. Every cat I know loves nothing better than a play with string or ribbon..usually some that I want to use on a

I thought thatI would share this picture of Reg and Jeffrey in the new 'cat' bed. They could not possibly lie in separate beds.It makes me laugh because in this picture you can see just how large Jeff is. Reg is not a particularly small dog but Jeff is definitely I think it must be all the dog treats. I remember when he arrived he was such a tiny kitten with the biggest feet and claws I have ever seen.He always jumped across anything like superman with his legs straight out in front and always had his mouth was so funny. He is now still only 1 year old so has a bit more growing to do before he starts filling out. Goodness help us.I've just gazed across the room at the empty cat bed and you could fit at least 4 normal sized cats in At the moment the two of them are in the large dog basket...alongside 4 crafting boxes. Jeff thinks it is so funny to knock my pile of boxes this time I haven't moved them and they will just have to lie round them. He did it 4 times yesterday so I'm not playing his games today.

Well the coffee is calling...and I really need one. I've been trying to take photos of my cards today and it has been driving me crazy. It must be a really dull day here in the mountains.I must have tried about 50 times to take them, different backgrounds, different lighting, flash on, flash off. I got to the point I wanted to throw everything out of the So I have given it up until tomorrow, and I'm hoping having a coffee will help. I hope you all have a fab weekend and manage to find a little 'me' time. I'm sure that you all bother about everyone in your life but forget to put yourself first. So please this weekend do something for yourself and have a little treat. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
