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.

JB-Crafting Supplies..Joanna Sheen cd

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at JB-Crafting Supplies. The cd that I have featured is Janet Kruskamp..The Collection. It has to be one of my favourite cdroms but yet it seems to have been a very quiet release and doesn't seem to have been well covered in the crafting community, yet it is filled with fantastic images and it seems such a pity. If you would like to pop over to the JB-Crafting Supplies blog, you will find other cards that I have made from this cd. The only different thing about this card is that the backing paper is from another Joanna cd..The Age of Elegance..and this is a William Morris design, many of which are featured on that cd. For this card, I diecut and coloured a plant pot and some small leaves, then added some small sequin flowers. I must be a very sad person, as I have hundreds of tiny sequin flowers...just because I love them

I've had a hell of a week..just so much work to do and the end isn't even in sight yet. After dinner tonight, I will have to finish another card and then, I've lots to do..about another 6 before Saturday. I'm so busy that I've had to shut all the cats apart from one out of the parlour. The only one in here is Jeffrey..not because he's spoilt but because he's not too well and he's just lay with Reg. As most of you know he had a huge fight and has a wound on his face. All the other cats let me see to any injuries without making a noise...but not Jeffrey. The whole time I was dabbing the antiseptic on...he cried like a baby. Not fighting me, not moving, just crying. And after it was all done he wanted an hours fuss being told what a wonderful boy he was. I think sometimes I forget that he is such a baby because of his size. he's now the biggest cat in the house, but in his head he's the baby. He is now lay with Reg demanding

I'm so glad to say that the invitations have now left the building..and thank goodness for that. I was so worried in case the cats created any more chaos. I have to say that Sprout is still covered in .Because he got caught in the falling cards he got covered in glue and glitter. The glitter I was using was it fitted in very well seeing as he is black and He now has that little added twinkle.

I don't know what to cook for dinner may well be pizza and salad .I'm waiting for my meat order, thats supposed to be arriving tomorrow. I buy my meat online and there should be enough to last a couple of months at least. It saves me a lot of money and means that I only have to buy my vegetables and fish in between orders. I tend to buy my potatoes and carrots in bulk and hopefully will soon be doing that with my onions. I live in hope that my onions will be a normal size and not the tiny ones that I've been getting lately. I know I buy value onions but my Grans time she would have laughed and called them pickling onions. They have been so small, that you need to peel 5 to get the same amount of onions as you would with one good sized I'm hoping to have salad tonight so it may well be pizza but haven't really decided yet...I may make quiche..I've just thought that as I'm typing. So it'll be cheese, onion and mushroom quiche with boiled potatoes and salad.

Well the coffee is calling and then I'd better get on with some more work. My friend the pa is coming to pick up a special card, so I'd better check it now before she arrives. It's finished but I always have to have that final look. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
