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....Make a Wish

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I have been lucky enough to be able to work with a delightful paper pad from The Wild Rose Studio called Cherry Cupcake. On this card, I have used the paper as a backing paper and then used a stamp from my stash to make the butterfly. I coloured the butterfly with my promarkers. I added it to the card and made a trail of black pearls, leading to the greeting. Julie over at JB-Crafting supplies is the most helpful person should you be after a certain crafting item. She has an amazing selection and the shop is a real Aladdin's cave of crafting goodies. The shop also has some really fabulous material and wool in stock.Why not pop over for a look.
What a weekend I had. My legs have given me so much grief..Saturday found me in bed in the afternoon. The main trouble seems to be with my 'good' leg. After all these years of being the good leg, it has decided that it wants to be bad as And while I was asleep Reg the super guard dog did his job...or so I thought. It turned out that his dog walker came round and Reg let him in, went for his walk, came back and let everyone have treats and then saw him much for the guard
As I sit here..would you believe's just started hailing. Yes as a special treat here in the's May and we have an inch of hail. Only of the cats have decided not to face the hail and have all added to the chaos  by climbing into the cupboard and knocking everything least Virgo has arrived and he has offered to put it back. Good Luck with that I
Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has also I'll keep my fingers crossed that the caffeine is coming. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting
