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.

Rosey Hearts..Enchanted Beauty

Todays creation is a design team make for the wonderful Rosey Hearts. The digital design has been created by the ever talented Melissa Stevens and forms part of todays feature over on their main blog. Why not pop over and take a look at the wonderful examples created by the other members of the team. They are so talented and are a great source of inspiration. For one of my makes, I decided to tangle this image. As you have probably seen on previous makes...I do love a bit of zentangle.I find it so relaxing. I had great fun tangling the hair on this design. The only other thing I have done is a little shading with a grey pencil.There is a giveaway on the blog today..if you follow the blog and leave a comment you will be in with the chance of winning two digi designs. I must also remind you that on the Rosey Hearts Challenge Blog a new challenge has begun, with the theme Anything with wings.Why not pop over and join in the fun.

The sun is shining here in the mountains today...and all the cats have decided to go out and get some fresh air. Of course that means that I am again playing cat round Pinky is sat on the studio roof, sunning herself. All the others seem to have taken themselves off into the valley. What makes me laugh is that they will all be telling everyone who will listen, that they are all starving. It won't matter that they have only just finished eating...they will all be out there trying it on.

I'm happy to say that I've got lots of work to do today. I have at least 10 cards to do this least it will keep me quiet. I also have a lot of die cutting to do today.Trying to do that, alongside a lot of cats help can help drive me slightly insane. No doubt that the air will be blue around my chair later. I have also quite a bit of printing to do today..but I'm looking forward to deciding what images to work with this coming week.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be a case of ready, steady craft here in the middle of I hope that you all have a great weekend..I'm watching the gymnastics as I'm working. It always amazes me, the way in which they can twirl themselves in the air with such precision..goodness knows I have enough trouble walking across the kitchen...I don't think it could even be classed as walking...more of a sideways At least when I'm in my wheelchair, I don't tend to fall over. I just have to make sure that I don't run over a So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
