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.

Gruffies and Guests....Lazy Days

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog. The theme for this month is 'Lazy Days' and I thought that this image of the happy hopper lazing in the tub was perfect. The image is from the House Mouse Decoupage cdrom, and I had great fun doing the decoupage. Sometimes there is nothing more relaxing for me than sat doing my decoupage while either listening to music or watching the television.Sad as it may sound but to me that is the perfect I mounted the image and the backing paper ( which is from the House Mouse Triple cdrom) onto some dark blue card. I also mounted the greeting onto the same. I then diecut some leaves and coloured them with my promarkers and added some sequin flowers. I do hope that you will try and join in the fun. If you pop over to the blog, you will see all the other wonderful creations that the other members of the design team have created. There are some truly beautiful cards.

We were lucky enough this month to be sponsored by the wonderful teams over at Bugaboo Digi Stamps. They have also offered some digis as the prize for this month. The range that they offer really has to be seen to be believed. I can find an image suitable for anyone over at the Bugaboo site.

Well the coffee is calling and then I have some work to do. As I'm writing this, Raven is determined to sit on my arm and trying to type round her is quite funny. She is quite a weight and will not be moved, no matter how hard I I will be back later with another you can see it's a busy day today. My friend Dotty is hopefully coming to we will e catching up on all the news...and of course finding out how little Merlin is getting on. So until later..take care and happy crafting.
