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.

Feeling Tired

I was looking through the cards that I had made over the past few months and came across this one. As most of you know the current challenge over at the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog is Halloween or Halloween colours, featuring either a Gruffie or House Mouse. Well  I'd used this card for a previous challenge but as I skipped through my cards and saw this one I thought to myself that the colours were quite autumn/halloween. You never realise what you've made that might fit into a totally different challenge. Well now is the time to have a go. Why don't you pop over to the Gruffies and Guests and enterthe challenge. There has just been a half way reminder with some fabulous inspiration from the very talented design team B. I always find the other design team makes amazing..and quite often something a little bit different.

This card is the perfect one for me today. I have been up since early and quite like a cuddle with a blankie but there is just too much to One of my friends, the PA, is forever on the go. I'm sure that she must have more hours in her day than the rest of the world..or perhaps she has just given up Sometimes when she tells me what she has achieved in a makes me feel exhausted just Well the majority of the painting is finished but what is left, I can see that it will take me all next week to do it, around all the cardmaking. It may be a case of make a card, paint a doorframe, make a card. Hopefully my new kitchen worktop will go up next week..oh the excitement of unpacking my kitchen machines. I can't wait to get to the point when I can get down to the arty bits. I may be glittering the stairs wall today..if my legs will let I will have to see how they go the moment the pain is too much and I've had to put them up. At least if I can't do anything else, I can at least make some list keeps growing.

Well the coffee is definitely caffeine levels are low. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
