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 Victoria

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. I had every intention of blogging this great digi yesterday..late afternoon but BT said no. It came to the point where I wanted to throw the computer and the router out of the window. I just had to give up and hated it. Every time I went to post the picture the connection went off. And according to the little BT person in India there is nothing wrong with the She told me that I had a speed of 8.75..I asked on what planet..we have never had a speed greater than 0.5...on a very good where she was looking I don't know. Yet another complaint is coming..I can feel it in my water.

But back to the important item..this great digi of Victoria. As most of you know, I love Adele's work..there is something about her digis that are so great to work with. I loved Victoria because of her much can you play with that?When I was a little girl, I loved nothing better than spending hours designing dresses, colouring and glittering. And now as an adult..the fun is still the same. I love to make dresses that I would love to wear but sadly..I just don't have the figure. For this card, I coloured the digi with my promarkers and then doodled over the dress with a black pen and followed that with glitter. I added pearl jewels to her necklace and to the points of glitter on her dress. I then cut her out and placed her on the card. I had found a lilac based backing which I mounted onto some purple card. I created a border with the same, added a ribbon and some black jewels. I also added some glitter and a black jewel to her hair. The whole thing was a joy to create. So many of Adele's digis can inspire you..why not pop over to the Jiggery Makery shop and take a look at what is available.

Despite the weather men stating that we were due thunderstorms and a deluge of hasn't come yet. As I write it is probably heading this None of the cats are in at the moment but if it rains, no doubt they will head home at great speed. The sky is looking a strange colour, so you never know .I'm aiming to have a couple of days crafting..I can really count my blessings today. An afternoon crafting, after watching some athletics..I don't ask for much more. I had a visitor yesterday..a friend of mine..we worked out that we have been friends for 21 doesn't seem like 5 minutes since we first met.He is now married to a wonderful lady and they have 2 of the cutest children. I'm so grateful that life has treated them well..they both deserve it. It was so nice to see him and to catch up on all his news. It made me laugh that he is now the owner of two cats..two white torties at that...well known for having a little attitude. He showed me pictures of them they are both very I just wished him good He was meeting up with some other friends last night and they are all due to go gorge walking today. I hope they have a great time, despite the inevitable

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to pick up the pens and get on with it. I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
