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....Vintage Ladies

Todays cards are a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. Both of these designs are from their forthcoming cdrom..Vintage Fashion.  On the first card I have decoupaged the figure. On the cdrom there will be 2 backing papers that co-ordinate with the main image. There are also greetings on the same sheet as the main image.I have embellished the card with some fabric roses, diamante flowers and some pearl strands.I also created a border and embellished that with some wonderful crystal gems.

For the second card, I have decoupaged the image and mounted it onto some gold mirri. The backing paper, I have mounted onto some black card and have also created a border. I have edged the border with some black lace and some crystal jewels. I just love this pink backing paper and can see that I will use it for many other projects. There is an offer on the Decoupage Delights page involving the pre order of the cd...why not pop over and take a look.

Well the sun continues to shine here in the mountains. I'm looking forward to an afternoon of crafting. Reg is so far into the may take him a week to get out. He was first in trouble for managing to break the remote control for the dvd..then the sound connection for the tv and his final act of destruction was the telephone. Yesterday he managed to spill my coffee onto the phone...the result being that the phone was full of coffee. It was literally dripping. it took all day and a lot of tissue to dry it out. It is now working thank goodness. Reg has really had the devil in him lately..I think that it's the He is very perky at the moment and is quite funny, despite the destruction. The cats are all well and are all stretched out in the sunshine. The only noisy one is Twinkle..who is on heat and is determined that everyone in the valley should know

I thought that it would be nice to share with you, pictures of the cats, one by that you know who I'm talking about as I rabbit on. So for the is Milky  

I was quite lucky to get her sitting has always been a character. After Henry passed Milky took it upon herself to be a dedicated comfort cat and didn't leave my side..even at night. Even now when I'm not feeling my best, it's as if she knows and will appear at my side. Milky is sister to Raven and Tankie. She was the only one out of the litter that had any white on her and she was the first born. When she was tiny she used to have a thing for drinking milk and used to run up my leg at every opportunity to drink cat milk off a teaspoon. My legs still bear the

Well the coffee is calling, the birds are singing and the crafting is waiting at my elbow. I hope that you are having a lovely day and that this weather lasts for a while. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
