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...Vintage and Blue

Todays cards are design team makes for the wonderful Decoupage Delights. I was lucky enough to get to work with this wonderful image of the little girl and her flowers. The second card featured today is going to be a free I wanted to share the two different ways in which I use the images from Decoupage Delights. The second card is as the download will come..the card front ready for you to decoupage. For my first card I have taken the image and the flowers and designed another card, using these elements, but using a background paper from my stash as well as a card with a butterfly on it. As you can see I have used the decoupaged flowers and added some blue butterflies

As you can see, even using the same image and decoupaged flowers..they have made two very different vintage style cards. This is one of the things that I love about the Decoupage Delights..there is always something different to play with. On the second card, all I have added is a bow and some pearls. So if you get the chance remember to pop over to the decoupage delights facebook page and grab yourself a freebie. If you get the chance, I would love to see what you create.

It's been a busy day here in the mountains. I went out for a wheel with Reg. We went to see the Virgo man and of course Jack. Reg and Jack got on really well. The cats came so far and then all waited for us to return. I had a lovely cup of coffee on the land and got to see the new trees. They all seem to be doing really well. Reg had a lovely time, running round off his lead, sniffing everything and watching Jack. As you can probably guess the weather is fantastic. Reg is now exhausted and is lay by my feet. Jack was back and to the whole time..he kept bringing his ball to me to throw for him. He would bring it near to me and drop it and I would tell him that it needed to be closer to the wheelchair..and then, bless him, he would bring it closer so that I could reach him. When I came back towards the cottage, all the cats came out and walked home with me. I had a few with me today...Tankie, Rave, Milky, Nicademus and of course the Jeffrey. One of the reasons that I went out was to shout Pinkie..but there was no sign of her. She does this sometimes. She goes past a certain point and then forgets how to get home. Usually cats are great for finding their way home but I have had a couple like this. I know roughly where she is and she just needs scent of me or Reg to find her way back. So if the weather stays lovely like this, then I will be visiting again until she comes home.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to do some more work. I hope that they weather is being kind to you wherever you are and that you get a chance to enjoy it. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
