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.

Jiggery Makery Apres Ski

Todays card is one that I've made for some friends of mine. They regularly go skiing as a family but the Mum doesn't ski but really enjoys the lets them all go off skiing all day while she enjoys sitting by the fire sipping on hot chocolate..and who could blame her. She has always said to me that she'd sooner be inside looking at the snow, than outside freezing and falling over.

The digi design is called Cindy and is the work of Adele over at Jiggery Makery. There is a link to her page on the sidebar. Why not pop over and see all the other delicious ladies. I printed out Cindy to fit an A5 card. I then coloured her using my copics and cut her out. I have to say that I really enjoyed colouring her jumper..I just love the detail. I decided to colour her so that she is only wearing her jumper and shorts because that's what my friend does..stays so warm that she could walk round in a She is always fresh and ready for all the partying that happens later on. I created a background for the card using my copics and some glitter. The other members of the team have made some fantastic projects..why not pop over and take a look.

Well today is really the day for some hot's hailing and snowing outside here in the mountains today. All the cats have been for a look outside and have given up on the idea of going out. I don't blame I received a present in the post today which was a lovely surprise.It was a black lace scarf and some marzipan fruits which I love.I have got to get to grips with my presents. They are at the moment all in boxes in my bedroom..I really do need to sort them out. I haven't even got enough wrapping paper yet. How is your christmas prep going? I've still got some presents to least I know what I want to get now...that's one better on last week where I didn't have a As most of you know, this christmas has been hard going but Henry always loved this time of year and I know he would hate the thought of me not celebrating in some way. He will always be with me but at christmas I intend to make it a special time and remember all the wonderful memories we shared.

The coffee is calling and then I have to make some christmas cards for myself. I haven't decided what images to use yet, and also I need to make some more notelets as a present. So if nothing else..I'll be busy. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
