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.

Decoupage Delights...Spring Flowers

Todays cards are design team makes for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights.For today I decided to feature these lovely spring flowers in a hope that the weather will The two first cards are from their Fancy Floral cdrom.  Just to show how good these cards are..I have added nothing, I just have made the card using what was printed from the cd. Somedays you have ages to spend making a card and personally I love taking my time, embellishing it to the full but other days, you'll wake up and realise you've forgotten a card for someone  and need to make one as soon as possible. The two cards featured here, I intend to feature the same designs next week with embellishments added. The image will be the same but the cards will look very different. I picked these cards because they represent spring to me. Daffodils because of my Grandmother and daisies just because they make me smile.I think that the daffodils would make a fabulous card for Saint Davids Day for any welsh friend. Also it would make a great Easter card.

And speaking of Easter, the card below is a free download on Friday on the Decoupage Delights facebook page...don't miss out on these really cute little chicks...what a great way to start your Easter crafting

I really must apologise for not posting since Friday.I have just come to the conclusion that I don't have enough hours in my I've been concentrating on an order for invitations and goodness me at themoment I don't want to see another one. I personally blame the cats for my distress. Part of the invitation was a purple square in the middle of which was a highly raised glittered 21. Well it took me an age to glitter all these numbers and they were drying on a tray in an area out of the normal route of the cats...or so I thought. Well Sprout decided to have a flid and suddenly jumped up,caught the tray and the whole lot of glittered squares, shot in to air and landed face down on the carpet. I have to admit that the language was very blue and it took me 2 coffees to calm enough to begin again. Not one had survived the You may laugh but it took me a while to even raise a smile.

To make matters even worse, my computer has been having a moment. The space bar decided that it wasn't going to work. That will serve me right for trying to clean the keys...I must have caused something to move which got itself stuck under the bar...trying to type became a real pain. Mind you at the moment it feels very hard typing, thanks to the cat that has sat on my left wrist.It's Raven who has decided to sit there in disgust because Jeffrey has decided to sit on my legs. She has always considered that to be her place and now has her nose out of I have tried to move her about 10 times but have now given up on that. As soon as I put her down, she turns round and runs back. So here she sits on my wrist, so I can't move my arm and she is purring like a good engine.

Well the coffee is calling...I'm hoping that Sparkle will arrive soon. My plans for tonight involve making a card that features an actual shuttlecock..which is going to be blinged looking forward to having a play. So until tomorrow..and I will be back with some design team makes for the fabulous JB Crafting Supplies...take care and happy crafting.
