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 Roses and The Butterflies

Todays card is a design team make for the great company of Decoupage Delights. For today I thought that I would share how I use the Decoupage Delights alongside my other cdroms. I had this lovely image of the lady in the big hat which is on Joanna Sheens 'Age of Elegance cdrom but, knowing what sort of card I wanted to make, I knew that I needed a bouquet of roses. And that's where the Decoupage Delights 'Fancy Floral' cdrom came into play.I just went through the floral cd until I found flowers in the right colour for the image. The baking paper is also from the 'Age of Elegance'. I created the mat for the image using a tonic punch, then added the decoupaged roses and the greeting. Finally I took some peeloff butterflies and stuck them onto the matching pink card and cut them out and added them alongside some pearls.

Goodness me I hope that all that made I have been ill since yesterday and my head is still very foggy. I keep trying to tell myself that it's not that bad but I do look quite a bit like nose is a lovely side of red. I got up this morning and by 1p.m.I was back in bed. I have to say that after being in bed, I do feel a little better. So hopefully, with another early night, I hope I will get back to normal. Even though I live with pain everyday, when something like this comes just throws everything else out. The cats must be wondering what is going on...when I went back to bed, they all followed me and stood looking at me as if I'd lost my Sad to say when I got up, they thought that they were going to get another breakfast..they can dream on..the greedy little beasts.

Well the coffee is calling and I'd better have one as my head is going a bit mussy again. It's hurting my eyes to focus...goodness me I'm a whinging ninny today. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting
