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.

A Jiggery Makery Present

Tdays card is a design team make for the fabulous team over at Jiggery Makery. Ever since I've seen this digital image I've been singing..Signed, sealed I thought that it would make a great card for the man in your life. I painted the image with my watercolours and then cut her out. I used some backing paper from my stash and mounted that onto a card with some mirri card. I edged the mirri and the sentiment with some glittered peeloff. If you get the chance why not pop over to the Jiggery Makery site and take a look at all Adeles wonderful creations. I'm sure that there is wonderful inspiration for your future crafting...the other ladies on the team have created some truly amazing projects.

It's really cold yet again in the mountains today but at least I can see the mountains. The cats have all just gone out. They demanded breakfast today as if they hadn't been fed for a week. I had to go to the bathroom accompanied by 7 little furry bodies all running round meowing at me. I know that they all need more in the cold weather but you'd think they would at least give me a At the moment all apart from Rave have disappeared out of the window. Raven is of course sat on my legs. I've been working at full speed for the past few days, trying to finish some cards for a local christmas fair. I still feel as ifI'm knee deep in I have finished setting all the cards up..I just have to embellish them. So this afternoon will see me surrounded by poinsettia and holly leaves. Please keep your fingers crossed that I manage to get it all done. Tomorrow will find me doing all the inserts. For the first time in my life I'm looking forward to doing will at least mean that I've managed to get them finished. I think that it's going to be a long

Well the coffee is calling and so are a huge pile of cards. Caffeine is definitely needed. So until tomorrow  take care and happy crafting.
