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.

To everything there is a season

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at JB-Crafting Supplies. It features the stamp set called Seasonal Branches from the Sheena Douglas range called A Little Bit Sketchy.I have to say having used rubber stamps for many years there is a world of difference out there..quality and price wise. I have paid a lot of money for some stamps that no matter how you try it..the stamps are hard work to use. These stamps in the Sheena range are I think reasonably priced and the stamping is so easy. Every time I've used one of her stamps, no matter how detailed they are..stamp cleanly with a very sharp image. Just what you want. I stamped the image using a memento inkpad and coloured the image using my copics. I then used my distress ink round the outside using my blending tool. I mounted both the image and the sentiment onto some burgundy card. The card itself I took the same burgundy card and mounted some white card on top, along with some burgundy lace. I finally added a burgundy flower. Next week I'm hoping to make a christmas card using the same image.

I had a lovely weekend and managed to get a lot of work done. I'm hoping that this week is going to be a better one..but you can never tell who is going to turn up. I'm hoping to get some painting done..I've two skulls to finish and a small canvas. I will sharing a couple of new cds later in the week.I am thinking to myself that I will have to start making christmas cards..oh yes the glitter will be coming I will need to have a sort out of my stash..all my christmas stuff gets put away I will need to dig it out. Poor Reg..he hates nothing more than when I 'm going through drawers and making piles of stash. He never knows where to put the Jeffrey who loves to be in the middle of all the chaos. Jeff especially loves it when I get the ribbon box does get that bad that I end up having to shut him out of the room.

Well the coffee is calling. I would just like to thank everyone who leaves a comment or messages means such a lot to me. And I love it when you share your wonderful creations.I noticed today that It's gone over 8000 views...goodness me I can remember when I was astounded to get up to a thankyou all. Until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
