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...Red Roses

Todays cards are design team makes for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. The card that I have chosen to work with is one of the 8x8 cards. The top card is made exactly as it is has been decoupaged and the only thing that I have added is a small bow at the top of the card. Sometimes you just need a quick card..and this would be one. The decoupage is not overly complicated and yet gives a wonderful effect. For the second card I have used the main decoupage but added my own backing paper and used some of the small roses to create a border at the bottom. I also added a double cream and one burgundy. I do like to have a play and see what a different card I can up with. The cdroms from Decoupage Delights give you an endless variety of options and are well worth every penny. Why not pop over and take a look.

I has every intention of blogging yesterday but BT were playing their usual games and I couldn't get my pictures to load. It drives me insane..and I always end up wanting to throw the computer out of the window. It's a bit gloomy here in the mountains today..raining on and off. Nicademus has decided that the couch is the best place today. Everyone else is out on the landing and downstairs. I was really annoyed this morning. And all the cats are to normal Jeffrey woke me at 5 a.m. by stroking my face  and I thought that, that would be the end of my being abused but no...Raven decided that she would get me up by jumping from the wardrobe onto my stomach...again and again.It drove me mad..and to add to the mayhem, Sprout decided it would be fun to yowl down my ear. In the end I gave up the fight and got up. Consequently all day has been like walking through And I've just remembered that I haven't taken my wonder I'm in so much pain. At least it makes me feel better..knowing some relief is The trouble is that one of my other tablets makes me forget it seems I'm on a strange roundabout some 

Well the coffee is definitely calling..and I think some caffeine with my pills and I'll be a whole new wish. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
