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.

Jiggery Makery..Georgia

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Jiggery Makery. Ever since I received this wonderful digi from Adele...the song lyrics have been going through my head..and I thought that the only way for it to stop was to use them on the card. The image has been coloured with my promarkers. I have printed the digi out in quite a large size to fit a 8x8 card. Over at Jiggery Makery there is a great valentine challenge, using one of the 4 valentine girls..why not pop over and take a look. And I have to say watch this space..there are some fabulous digis coming out soon. I can hardly wait to get to work on them.

 For some reason, I just love this image...I only wish that I had a figure like her. Saying that I would probably get into so much trouble if I had such a's probably safer this way.It's strange really..having bad legs..I can't even remember what it was like to have 2 legs with no scars.Just recently I found an old photo of a time when my legs were unscarred and I didn't even recognise It's just a head space thing I Gran always used to say that scars were just a map of the journey we have travelled...all I can say is that I've had a hell of a

It's still very cold here, but I'm nice and cosy..blanket on my legs and a cat on top of that. Raven is the equivalent of a never cooling hot water bottle..and she is really toasty I have to say. All the snow has disappeared except for the flat roof of my studio. I'm hoping to get in there in the next couple of months..once it's warmed up a bit. I can't wait to see what I've got that I've forgotten. I know that there is a large number of stamps in you'll probably see lots of them come the summer. One thing that I'm going to do first is to create a dining room, in the downstairs parlour. I haven't touched there yet in my doing the house quest..but it's pecking my head at the moment.But again..I'll have to wait until it's a little warmer. My legs can object lots to cold weather and that just wears me bring on a time when it's not below freezing.

Well the coffee is calling, as always. I think that as a car needs petrol...I need caffeine. And I can smell it on the air because Sparkle has just brewed. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
