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....The Lady and The Daisies

Todays cards are design team makes for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. The card above is due to feature on the upcoming cdrom..Vintage Fashion. I can't wait for it to come On the card above I have decoupaged the lady and have created a background using some matching background paper and some mirri holographic. The card below is this Fridays freebie. It would make a lovely Easter card as well as a spring birthday card. So remember to pop over to the Decoupage Delights facebook page and collect your free download.

As I'm sitting here by the window, I have to laugh about how quiet people say the countryside is. Well if they were sat by the window with me they would understand me when I say it's not. A cockerel is crowing his head off, and it seems as if every bird in the valley is And on the inside, Twinkle is on heat and calling her little heart out. Goodness knows how a tomcat would cope with her...the noise that she makes is enough on it's own. All the other cats are outside because the sun is actually shining. I can see blue sky and a couple of fluffy clouds..the only other thing that would be nice is a little is still really cold. My friend the pa is back from Barcelona and we were laughing about the weather. In the photos my friend is wearing a tshirt (one with Henrys owl on it), yet all the other people were bundled up in coats and scarves. To the people of Barcelona it was a cold day but to my friend from here in the mountains it was quite other funny thing was that there she was in Barcelona and bumped into someone from the next world can seem like a very small place sometimes.

Well the coffee is calling and I have to figure out what to make for dinner. Last night I made a chicken pasta bake...and have to say, have no idea what to do tonight. My mind is a total blank. It could well mean that it's sausages or a crumble...I think that I'll have to have a look. So until tomorrow..when hopefully my brain will have come care and happy crafting.
