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.

Crafting Musketeers...Cuddly Buddly

Todays card is the second card that I made for the latest challenge over at the Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog. The design is a digi from the wonderful team over at Cuddly Buddly who are the sponsors for this month. I have to say that I so loved colouring this image. I spent an evening colouring it with my copics. I really let the girly side of me out.And as today is valentines day, I thought it would be perfect to share. The border lace is created with a Martha Stewart punch. The backing paper is also from the Cuddly Buddly team.

As I'm writing this I am listening to some of my favourite music. I have a strange mix of music that I listen to. I always told Henry that it's ok to listen to all sorts of different don't have to stay in one genre. I like AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac, Slipknot but I also have a bit of a passion for 70's cheese, Smokie and even Jim Reeves. It always depends on what sort of mood I'm in. I always need some noise when I'm working, which is just as well as Icabod is snoring loudly in the When I'm cooking I tend to listen to Smokie or motown...and I can sing along quite happily while I'm washing up or baking a cake.

I am so happy today as my latest order for black card and glue has arrived. I was a little worried in case it didn't would have meant that I didn't have any glue all weekend...I may have ended up in a meltdown Don't get me wrong I do have about 20 different types of glue but the one that I use the most had ran out. It's enough to send me in a So this afternoon I'm going to make the cards for next week and tomorrow start the invitations. A good plan I think. The invitations may end up making me clean the It's always the same when I'm in the middle of doing an order for a lot of the same thing, I find myself having to have a little this time I have a plan..

I don't know what we're having for dinner this evening. We had the three days of spot the meat stew in it's various guises and I have to say myself, that I enjoyed them all. I'm thinking of fish pie, sausage casserole and pizza, as my next few days meals but I don't know which I fancy the most for tonight. I also have some left over mashed potatoes which I need to do something with...I may make some potato scones but even that I'm undecided about.

Well the coffee is calling and the cats are demanding..but when is that any different. I've come to the conclusion that they're a bunch of greedy little monsters some  They've all had their breakfasts and no doubt have emptied the bowl of biscuits downstairs and are now complaining that they need it They will just have to moan until after the caffeine So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
