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.

Dreaming of the future

Todays card is made using a decoupage sheet from Le Shu. The baking paper is from the Perfect Prints..Blue Dawn paper pad. I completed the decoupage and mounted it to the card onto which I had mounted the backing paper. I added a sentiment from my stash, alongside a bow and some jewels. I just had to do this decoupage simply because the cat reminded me of a cat I had years ago called Peter. He was a little rescue kitty and was always at my elbow, helping me with whatever I did.People always ask me how on earth I can tell my cats apart..well I always find it easy...their personalities are just so different.

And now for the most exciting part of the blog today...let me introduce you to Merlin. He is Dotties new puppy

Isn't he the cutest puppy. He is a papllion and looks such a perky little boy. When he's a little bigger, he will be coming on a visit. I can't wait. I am truly blessed with the amount of animals in my life. When Henry was alive he could always remember the names of dogs or cats but sometimes couldn't remember the names of the To him the animals always came first. The next dog I will be introducing you to is Jack who's human is Virgo man. That will be in the next couple of weeks.

All my animals have retired to bed after their breakfast and there is no sight or sound of them. It looks like a quiet day for once. Goodness only knows what trouble they will be up later. It's still very cold here although the sun is shining. Not the time to take my socks off yet though.

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has just I will put on my hard done to face and hope he makes a So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
