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.

I was lucky enough to be able to use this fabulous stamp from the Stampendous range, featuring this lovely teapot with it's bunch of roses. I mounted this blue and white paper onto some blue card and mounted the image and the greeting onto some of the same. I coloured the image with my promarkers for a change. And finally I used some peeloff borders and a peeloff greeting to finish it off.

I have to say that earlier she did have a sulky moment because she went to jump up and found to her disgust..Jeffrey had beaten her to it. It did take some serious pushing on her part to get him off. But she is a female that never gives up when on a All of a sudden, she was in her place and Jeffrey was on the floor wondering what the heck had happened. There has been small doses of snow and hail but nothing that warrants getting a scarf out. The only cats that have ventured out are Sprout and Obie. They left quite determined to do their daily walk around the village. All the others have found themselves a little nest. Tankie has taken herself to bed and is refusing to move. Not to be content with lying on the quilt, she has managed to get herself under it, with her head on the pillow and I have to say that she looks really

Well the coffee is calling and I'm really hoping that Sparkle will appear and make me I feel sometimes that I should have a coffee bell which declares to the world..get this woman a coffee before there's I haven't really decided what I'm doing for tea but it may be curry...I've got a new recipe for some flatbreads which I'm going to try. I will let you know how they turn out and if they're really nice I'll put the recipe up on the blog for you to try. And of course, I shall have to make some scones for tablet's the only thing that I can manage to eat if I'm facing my tablets. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting
