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 Frog and the Flower

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I was lucky enough to get to work with this lovely stamp from the Nellie Snellen stamp range. This one is called 'Frog on Flower'. I have never used this range before and have to say that they are fabulous to work with. The stamp is really easy to use and the stamped line is just so detailed and fine. I decided to go withthe theme of black and red.I mounted the backing papers onto black card and added some peeloff daisies to embellish the card. Onto the daisies I added these wonderful jewels. I just love the bling that they add. The stamps and jewels are all available to buy from Julie ,over at JB-Crafting Supplies...why not pop over and take a look at all the wonderful goodies that she has...also she is a wonderful source of sewing goodies. It truly is an Aladdin's cave of crafting joy.
I feel so honoured to be actually able to blog today. BT are driving me up the wall. It seems as if the whole village is on and off..the lights on my hub are flashing more than the lights of Blackpool. Yesterday it just wouldn't have it at all. After trying for 5 hours..I just gave up. Tomorrow I have every intention of ringing them...I may have to take a tablet But it can't go on like this.
It's truly been bank holiday weather here in the mountains..rain, wind and even hail have bombarded us. Last night the wind raged and it even managed to scare the cats. They all came on the bed and stared at the roof. Bless them. Jeffrey and Hobo have been at it all day...thank goodness they have stopped fighting but now they both sit facing each other on the studio...yowling their heads off. Noisy just isn't the word for
Well the coffee is calling and a good dose of caffeine is definitely needed. Sparkle has been trying to unblock the bathroom sink. It has been blocked for a while..has had 2 good doses of plughole unblocker, boiling water and a thing that is supposed to grab anything that is down there,....and nothing. Bless him he's tried so hard but he hasn't given up...the big plunger is due to come out now...goodness only knows what the problem is. If in doubt blame Between him and Reg they are currently costing me a fortune...with broken phones, broken wires, broken telephone wires and a broken tv connection..there seems to be no end to their destruction. But you just have to love So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting
