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..One Summers Day

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at JB-Crafting Supplies. I have used a cdrom from Joanna Sheen. It is called One Summers Day and features the wonderful artwork of Barbara Mock. There are so many fabulous images on this cd, it is hard to know where to begin. You just want to print them all To make this card I have mounted the backing paper and the image onto some purple card and have also created a border using the same card. I edged a strip of the backing paper with some lace and then make a border strip using die cut ivy leaves and small sequin flowers.

I'm not having a good day today..but at least it's only my legs. Perhaps the cold weather has affected them. All night I have been asleep on and off because of the pain. Personally I'd like to give them away for a I've always said that waist up I could conquer the world but waist down it would take me a least it's quiet here. All the cats are asleep, so my head at least doesn't feel like a cat round a bout. Normally, as they go out through the head becomes a round a bout with the incoming and outgoing cats. This summer I'm hoping to be able to get new windows for the parlour..I've already told the builder that it needs to be operable in such a way that the cats can still get in and out onto the studio I bet that there's not many people that have to bear that in mind when buying windows.

I had a phonecall last night from a friend who told me that she had purchased some fruit trees for the land as a present. I couldn't believe her kindness..she knew that I had planned to buy some fruit trees when I had the money but she decided to get them for me. I am really blessed by the kindness of my friends. She has ordered a pear,plum, apple and cherry tree. Virgo man has been told to dig the holes in readiness.I am also going to buy a bramley cooking apple tree some time after Easter. It will be interesting to see how they get on in this little cold valley. For the front garden, I'm hoping to get some herbs. I must be feeling brave because I haven't got one green finger...let alone The herbs that I'm hoping to get are bay, rosemary, mint and parsley.And I've also decided to try basil..but in the kitchen. These are the herbs that I use the most. I do fancy having a go at tomatoes but that may have to wait until next year.

Well the coffee is calling and work is also having a little shout. I'm hoping that Sparkle will I'm still in crisis after the breaking of my mug last night. This mug was huge..Henry had bought it for me as a joke. It held about a pint of coffee and he said that he'd bought it for me to cut down on the number of brews he had to about the mug was perfect and now it's gone...thanks to Jeffrey. He also managed to break my ashtray as well..I'm just waiting for the third So Sparkle needs to be here to make the perfect coffee, he'd worked out the perfect amount of coffee, sugar and milk over the last few months and now we have to start So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
