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..The Cute Challenge

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at The Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog. It features this cute image of cupid from the great team over at Cuddly Buddly. They have an amazing online store..well worth a look. They have provided the image and the backing paper for this month for the design team as sponsers and have kindly given a gift voucher as a prize.I just loved working with this image and had a great time working out what I was going to create. I have coloured the image of Cupid using my copics and a silver gel pen. I mounted the backing paper onto some silver holographic and created the border using the same. I sat the cupid on the border, after edging it with peeloffs. I then created the heart decorations using peeloffs and heart shaped buttons.

I didn't blog over the weekend because it was the first time I faced Henrys birthday without him. I was lucky to have had lots of visits from friends and lots of phonecalls...I did manage to hold it together until last night and then I was a bit of a mess. But as always I got through by remembering to count my blessings and fuss a cat. And I have got loads of work to do this week...that will at least keep me occupied. As I write this Raven has just arrived and demanded me to lift my board that I work on, so that she can return to lie on my She is acting a bit stupid silly at the's coming up to a full moon and it always seems to affect her. Do any of your animals get affected by the changing of the moon. Ever since she was a kitten she has always gone really giddy come a full

My friend Dotty came yesterday. It was so good to see her and I have to tell you that her family have just become the proud owners of a puppy. Goodness me he is the cutest little bundle of fluff I have ever seen. He is called Merlin and is a Papillion It will be so exciting to watch him grow up. When I have remembered to ask Dotty I will try and post a picture of him. Hopefully when he is a little bigger he can come over on a visit.Saying that I don't know how Reg would feel. He loves Dotty and goes and sits by her...our Reg really is a ladies man. Some days he will let you think..oh bless him he's an old dog and the next thing..a lady has arrived in the parlour and he's skipping round like a puppy,managing to jump up on the couch and dominate the visit so it's all about him. When they've left he's back to 'old man dog'...demanding everything done for

I hope the weather is being kind to you wherever you are. We have snow and the gritter hasn't managed to make it here. If we have just a bit more..I'm going to take the wheelchair out and have a It does keep trying to snow some more but it's very little. I count it as proper snow if I can see the flakes without my
