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.

Flowers for you

Hello everyone..I'm back. I just had to have a few days off following last week.I would like to thank everyone for their kind messages and support. It means so much to me.

Todays card is from The Gruffies and Happy Hoppers cdrom brought to us by Joanna Sheen. As most of you know, I alongside all my other passions, I have a little love of rabbits. On this cd the art work featured is by the very talented artist Ellen Jareckie who also is responsible for the adorable House Mouse.To make this card I have mounted the image first onto some purple mirri and then onto some holographic card. I then mounted the backing paper onto the same holographic card.I created a border using a strip of the same holographic and some spare flowers that were left on the backing paper. I cut them out and overlapped them to decorate the border. The greeting was also on the printed sheet with the image, and I also mounted this on the purple mirri and holographic.

During my days off Virgo man has created the new cat duplex. And they love it. Twinkle and Icabod now have twice as much room as well as an upstairs bedding loft.As I write, they are both upstairs asleep. I have to say that Twinkle is still a destroyer of the bottom layer but it so much easier to clean and put straight. I have now two doors to reach through and it is the perfect height, so I can sit down whilst doing it. The only thing I've left to do is to sort the mountains of paper out..but now I'm quite looking forward to it. Somehow it's worked out that I have more seating in the parlour..which seems strange..but the cats love it. I'm planning to do some sorting later. Al the cats are well and Milky is sat by me as I write this. So according to the weatherman we are due lots of snow from Wednesday onwards..we shall see. Ihave to saythat everywhere else has had quite a bit but we've only had one sighting here. I was watching the news today and America is bracing itself for about 3 feet. I've warned the cats but I think they'll all be happy as long as the electric blanket is still working.

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle is here so my wishes will come true. And then it's onto finsh some cards and then the paper mountain is to be So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
