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

Hello everyone, I'm back again.This time is a design team make for the great company Decoupage Delights. For this card, I took the elements that were on a quick card sheet and used them as I wanted to..creating this card. I began with the green mottled paper from my stash and then layered some dark pink in the middle. I created the floral borders with some of the quick card background. I decoupaged the main image with 4 layers, and added that to the centre. I finally added a bow. This card is from Decoupage Delights floral cdrom. So many beautiful images and so many different ways to use them. They have a new cdrom due out any time soon featuring fashion and flowers...I can't wait. They are also having regular offers and freebies on their facebook page...why not pop over and take a look.

Well the sun is still shining and the cats are still outside. I have just finished colouring a new image, so I'm in a good mood...I got to colour in total pawprints on the paper, Milky running off with the vital pen or my glasses and no Raven trying to sit on my elbow the whole

I suppose it's time for another seems that caffeine is to me what petrol is to a I'll see what other work I can get done before it's time to make dinner. It's chicken curry tonight I think. We had chicken and mushroom pie last night and fish pie is imminent this week but I really feel like a curry. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
