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.....Vintage Roses and Gentian Butterflies

Todays cards are design team makes for the wonderful team over at Decoupage Delights. All the cards today are made using elements from the decoupage delights cdroms but perhaps not as intended. On the first card I was desperate to use the little vintage image of the girl with the cat. I knew that I wanted a decoupage of some roses and found just what I wanted on the Fancy Floral cdrom. It's knowing that you have a resource as good as this cd in your stash that makes all the difference. The cards below are used making the gentian and the butterfly image which I can announce will be a free download for you all on the decoupage delights facebook page on Friday. There will be a free quick card sheet containing the decoupage and a sheet with a matching insert. On the next two cards I have used the image but not as a Quick card. Last week I was working with the lamb and the lilies image and mentioned that I had a piece of blue backing paper left...well I used that to provide the backing paper on the card below.

 As you can see,I have used the same image on both cards..just using different backing paper and different shaped cards. So please pop over to the decoupage delights face book page on Friday and enjoy playing with this design.

It's still cold here in the mountains and it may be the time for special socks. The cats in the duplex are both cosied up on the bedroom level. Full tummies seems to have that effect on them. There has been a lot of chatter in the cottage with Virgo man about chickens and fruit trees on the watch this space. It would be lovely to have some chickens but we shall have to talk some more and make some plans Exciting times are ahead I think.

Well the coffee is calling and I'm about to start some invitations for a 21st birthday party. I will share a picturewhen I've finished them. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting
