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 Roses

Todays cards are a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. The two cards have been made using the same sheet but I made them up differently. The first card is as it appears on the sheet..but the second is using the same elements but in a different way.The bottom card needs a greeting but I haven't decided what one to use yet. The Decoupage Delights cdroms and downloads are a part of my library that I use so often and in so many ways, I find that I couldn't craft without them. As most of you know, I adore vintage images, so they are a perfect go to item to me. Why not pop over to their facebook page and take a look at what is available. I know that it is far too early to mention the christmas word but for those of you who have to start early to get all your christmas crafting early..take a look at the vintage christmas cdroms..they are fabulous. And of course the vintage fashion cdrom is due out soon..from what I've seen, the fashions are wonderful. So many of my friends would love the dresses, so no doubt they will be getting a card featuring one of them.

I was due to blog these cards yesterday but as usual BT were playing up.I am just getting so fed up with it.Trying to up load pictures, taking hours and still nothing. But of course you talk to the little BT lady in India and she tells you that you have amazing speed and what can you do. When you do manage to speak to someone in the UK, they tell you that it is the worst speed that they have ever seen...but still no one does anything about it. Just what to do next. It seems to me that the next option is to get in touch with the local mp. He seems to be doing something for other people in the valley with problems...but why should you have to? I'm going to give it some thought and set off on a course of action. Probably head down like a bull in a china

The weather today is back to being lovely. Yesterday it was like being in Brigadoon...the mist was up and down like shutters at a window. One minute you'd look out of the window and you couldn't even see across the street and the next time you'd look the shutters had lifted. And it was like that all day. Today the sun is shining and the whole valley looks very beautiful.

I am so lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful place. And the views you can see are my cats playground. Oh and I've got good news...Pinkie is home. She walked in last night...well in the middle of the night if she'd only been out for a couple of hours. I was in bed and the other cats had woke me as if something was wrong...they were jumping on me and pacing about. So I got up and when I got to the parlour, I could hear a cat crying at the window..and there she was. I'm so happy to know that she is ok. All the family are all's well with the world.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to do some work. I've still got colouring to do and some canvasses to finish. I will be sharing them with you over the next few weeks. So until tomorrow..BT willing, of course..take care and happy crafting.
