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.

Snowman and Friends

Todays card is from the Giordano Christmas cdrom brought to us by Joanna Sheen. I started on this card by mounting some green gingham paper onto some red backing card. I then mounted the image onto some of the same red card. I of course had to glitter I added an embellishment ofa diecut poinsettia, holly leaves and foliage.

We are even more in Brigadoon today than we were yesterday. I don't know about not seeing down the valley..I can't even see across the road today. It's as if the mountains have drawn their curtains and the world outside doesn't exist. As far as the cats are concerned, they're not even going out to They all keep going to the window, looking and then go back to the basket,I can't say that I blame them. It was a wild night with the rain lashing down and the wind raging. I was glad to be cosy in my recess in the bedroom..the bed was toasty, the cats were cuddled round and I had a great book. I was one happy bunny.

Christmas seems to be rushing towards us at a great speed. I've got lots of wrapping to do and I still have some friends presents to make. Hopefully today I will get them finished. I'm just so tired today for some reason. I think that perhaps I need some caffeine to boost I had a visit off the district nurse today to give me my B12 injection which was due today. It seems that I'll have to have these for the rest of my life..what a joy. The nurse always expects me to look forward to it, as most people say that they notice such a difference when they have it..but I don't. All I get is a headache for 2 days after. Goodness I am whinging fool I need to get a grip and find some festive feeling.

Well as the coffee is definitely calling I'd better do something about it.So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting

  1. What a lovely card. I really like the red squirrel on it as we get a lot of them in the back garden.
