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....The Vintage Car

Well I bet you thought that I'd disappeared but I am again. I was busy with visitors over Easter..I felt really spoilt. But then I was back down to earth with a bump when my camera decided to play up and there I was with a huge selection of cards ready to go and nothing I could do about it. It's all fixed now..thank goodness and it feels like I will be playing catch up all week. I hope that you all had a fantastic Easter.

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous JB Crafting Supplies. I am using a picture from a Joanna Sheen cdrom but my main objective was to use this wonderful car stamp from Stampendous Stamps. It seemed to fit in so well with this image that I just had to use it. I stamped the image using my memento ink pad and then coloured it using my promarkers. I cut it out and then added it to the card as a form of embellishment. I also added some twine. It reminded me of when the family owned a petrol station and to close at night, we just ran a rope across the entrance. I can remember serving petrol back in the day and it was only 25p a seems so unbelievable now. Somewhere I still have a little plastic tiger that we had to hand out with every remind you to put a tiger in your Also I remember that the first time that I ever saw a smurf was when I was giving them away with petrol as well. It's strange what you

Well the sun is shining here in the mountains today..and all the holiday makers have left the valley. Virgo man came yesterday and he seems determined to get me I had to go through all the rigmarole of explaining that I can't sit out in the sun because of my skin...I have a condition which means I don't have any protection from UV and if I get over hot, I end up with brown patches. Virgo has now decided that he's going to get me a parasol for the garden. He's a bit like a dog with a bone when he gets an idea in his no doubt before summers over I'll be sat under a At the moment all the cats are have to enjoy every moment of peace you Jeffrey is still waking me at 5a.m., thinking a kiss will make it all better. It must be in the male gene..both cat and I have to say I don't mind it half as much when it's a cat.

Well the coffee is calling and then it's back to work...until it's time to make's going to be chilli with jacket potatoes tonight and maybe some salad. I think that I may be salad obsessed but that can't be a bad thing. Nothing makes me happier than some spinach,rocket and watercress.I would be a very cheap So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
