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.....A Happy Percy

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. It is next in the new christmas in July digis featuring the adorable Percy and Lilly. The digis were drawn by the ever talented Adele over at Jiggery Makery. For this card...where Percy gets his first kiss..I have coloured the happy pair with my promarkers. For a change I coloured them with blue hats. I mounted the image and the backing paper onto some dark blue card. I then surrounded the image with a glittery peeloff. I then added a row of fluffy snow balls on the left side. I love these snowballs as they add so much texture and have a lovely twinkle. To finish off, I added a silver bow. I just love Percy and Lilly, so no doubt they will be appearing on a lot of my christmas cards this year. Sometimes I think oh why do christmas in July and then I think about it seriously and know that I start all my christmas card orders in it's always good to look ahead and to have some plan of what you're going to do.

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has just I don't even have to make The sun is shining here in the mountains today and all the cats have left home to go and lie out. Perfectpeace to craft in. I will be back later with another design team until then..take care and happy crafting.
