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.

Through the leaves

Todays card is from the wonderful cdrom by Creative Crafting World which showcases the amazing paintings of Pollyanna Pickering. This has to be one of the most requested cards that I make. This cd features so much..I would buy it just for the backing paper..which to me speaks of what a great buy it is.I mounted the backing paper and the image onto some cream pearlised card and then edged the image with some peeloffs. I stamped some leaves..something you know that I love to do..and then coloured them with my copics.

Yesterday was quite productive..I spent the day colouring and searching for quotes. But when it came to bedtime I realised that I hadn't made a card! I probably have the pieces to make 10 but haven't got to putting them altogether yet. Mind you I did have a fall of them that takes your breath away and you end crying with the shock of it. So I was feeling particularly tender yesterday..and then I woke up this morning and goodness me everything hurts. I'm ok apart from when I move my If I move my head I get a huge pain in my side. Sounds strange I know but then you always feel worse the day after a fall. As I was on the floor yesterday following my fall I was kissed by Reg who was obviously trying to make me feel better. The cats looked at me as much to say what on earth are you doing Today Rave has not left my side..I must look like I need cuddles.I'm hoping that today I get finished a least a few of the projects that I've

Well the coffee is calling along with a couple of painkillers I think. I have the nurse coming tomorrow to have a chat about my illnesses...that should be until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting

    Thank goodness you are OK after your fall, bless Reg coming to kiss you. Pets are clever like that, aren't they?

    Take care, Michele.
