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...Just a little sunshine needed

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous JB-Crafting Supplies. I was lucky enough to get to work with the wonderful cdrom..The Gruffies and Happy Hoppers. I chose this perfect image of the gruffie relaxing in the sunshine.I'm forever hoping for some summer weather. Last week was like the middle of For this card, I mounted both the image and the backing paper onto some blue card. I also created a border with the same. I was lucky enough to find some sunflowers in my stash, so I added them to my border. It makes me laugh when people say things about my may sit around for a while but it comes into it's own in the end. I have been looking at these sunflowers for about 5 years..but I knew that they would come in useful at some

The weather is actually ok today. The sun is shining and I am looking at a blue sky. All I can hear is Icabod snoring and that's competing with the birdsong and the cuckoo in the distance. Yesterday the cuckoo was calling all day long. I'm surprised that he has any voice left. Jeffrey has gone out..dodging the magpies no doubt. Yesterday they came and sat in the tree in the front garden and terrified him again. They are a pair of calculated birds.Sprout is still being kept in, to make sure that he recovers from the fight. He is looking a lot better. He was off 2 legs through loosing claws in the fight. The front leg is totally's just his back leg..but he is stretching it out's just where he has lost his claws. I noticed this morning that he is starting to put it down..which is a good and I think a few more days rest and he will be better. Reg is also having a little limp at the moment...but then he is getting to be an elderly dog and sometimes he just gets a little stiff..bless him.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time for my favourite job..colouring some new images. I have already printed them out and am ready to start. It is the only time that I'm guaranteed to be No doubt the tip of my tongue will stick out as well as I'm trying to The hardest thing is that my glasses have to come off now and again so that I can see the's just an age thing. Some days I feel as if they should be on a string..they are off and on all the time. So until tomorrow...and of course BT willing that is...take care and happy crafting
