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.

Jiggery Makery presents Elizabeth

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous Jiggery Makery. Let me present Elizabeth. As soon as I saw this wonderful digi, it raised a smile because it made me think of one of the funniest books that I have read and it was called coffee, tea or me. It was popular in the early 70s and it was about the changes affecting air hostesses at that time. The other thing that this digi made me think of was a lot of gentleman who this would be perfect for. They may say to many I haven't the time for ladies, I'd sooner have a good cup of the tea..but I know that they still have an eye for a great pair of This is going to be a card that I send to them...I haven't got good legs but at least Elizabeth has. It would raise a smile. I really enjoyed working with this fabulous digi. I loved the idea that I could decorate the cup and saucer as well. I chose to draw some stylised roses on this card but was also thing of using some of my smaller stamps and creating other designs over the cup and saucer. If you get the chance, please pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and check out the fabulous creations of the other members of the design team. They are truly wonderful and very inspiring. What always amazes me is that you can give the same image to any number of people and they come up with very different designs..all great and they can in turn inspire you to create something totally different for yourself. I feel myself to be blessed to work with some very talented ladies.

The weather today in the mountains is back to normal..rain, rain, rain. But I have a weekend of great crafting to look forward to..which always cheers me up. I'd like to say have a great holiday to Sunshine and Mr. 5 Cheeks who are off to Italy today. Everyone I know seems to be off to Italy in the next few days. I hope they all have a fabulous time and have remembered to pack their Henry Tshirts. I wonder who will be first to post from Italy. It is really surprising how many T shirt post there has been. I'm getting orange dots all over the world.When people come to see the map, they're always really shocked just how many we're getting. Henrys owl really is flying the world.

Well the coffee is calling and then it's time to craft. I hope that you all have a great weekend. So until tomorrow..and BT willing of course..take care and happy crafting.
