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.

Autumn Fairy

Todays card is featuring a fabulous fairy from Linda Ravenscroft. This is a design team make for the fabulous team at The Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog. The theme is Autumn Colours and the challenge has been sponsered by the wonderful team over at The Hobby House. There is a £10 voucher for the winner. I really enjoyed making this card.It has about 5 layers of decoupage, and I have glittered the leaves. I felt that the image was so strong it didn't need anything else. It would also look nice in a frame I think. Please pop over to the challenge blog and take a look.Why not enter a card. I have been lucky enough for many of you to share your card making creations with me and they have been wonderful....why not have a go. I can promise you that it easy. If I can do it..anyone at first it may seem a little daunting but you can do it. If you are having any problems..just get in touch and I will try my best.You are probably better than me on the computer There is a link on the side bar of my blog which will take you to the challenge.

Well the sun is shining today in the mountains. The air is full of the sound of birdsong..they obviously have a lot to say today. Raven, one of my cats doesn't catch birds but sits in the window  and makes a barking noise at them. One day last year I was woken by a weird peeping. As I came to I noticed that Raven was sat on the window sill by my bed and to my surprise sat by her side was a little bird. Every so often she would touch it on it's head and it would peep. She wouldn't let any of the other cats touch it and seemed to love it. Henry gathered it up and let it out of the window. It just flew off..non the worse for a morning visit.It taught me one thing think about keeping my window shut at night. I have to say that even though it's sunny today..there is a definite nip to the air. It will soon be time to get my blanket out for my legs. When it turns cold I always keep a warm blanket over my legs,because with the feeling in them being so bad, I can't always tell when they're getting too better safe than sorry I think.

The coffee is calling and I've still got a mountain of work to get through. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
