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.

Halloween is coming


Todays card isa design team make for the wonderful team over at the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.It features this sweet image from The House Mouse Triple cdrom brought to us crafters by Joanna Sheen. The Challenge theme is Halloween or Halloween Colours and the wonderful sponser is Di's Digis and they given a $10 voucher as the prize. Why don't you pop over to the blog to take a look and enter the challenge.
The card is what the makers called a snowflake shape but as far as I'm concerned it's a funky shape and could be used at any time. I covered the card with the matching backing paper and then mounted both the image and the greeting onto some gold holographic. I then cut out some leaves from the backing paper and decoupaged them onto the card overlapping the image. I took a second picture so hopefully you can see the effect more clearly.

As I'm trying to type this Raven is sat on my chest, ticklin my nose with her tail. I'm having to type with one finger, she is so determined to be there. She is happily purring away as I'm getting a crick in my neck, trying to see over bet you're thinking why does this stupid woman just not move the cat. My answer to that is that as soon as I move her, she jumps back over the computer and it goes on and She has been like this all week. I think she just needs 2 D rings and a handle and everyone would be happy. Despite what the weather man's a lovely day here in the mountains. The rest of the cats are in and out of the window like yo-yos and even Reg is feeling perky.

Well the coffee calls..I know I'm a caffeine head but it my fuel of choice. I hope you have a great weekend. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
