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...That Special Gift

I know that it's late for me to be blogging but it seems to be the only time that I'm allowed to by the wonderfully reliable BT. I have been trying for the past two hours to get online. But enough of me moaning..let's get down to the important things.

The card is my design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery, who are having a special Christmas in July moment. Let me introduce you to these two fabulous characters..Percy and Lilly Penguin.On this card Percy has got his nerve together to give Lilly a special present. To make the card, I first created the little circle background, inking some hills and then adding some blue and then of course (you know I just had some glitter. I coloured Percy and Lilly with my promarkers, cut them out, curved them a little and added them to the background using my pinflair glue gel. I then created the card by first adding some red card and a background paper from my stash. I then added a red panel down the front. To this I added the picture and some snowflakes from my stash. I used my favourite christmas colours..but I will be hard pressed to part with this card. There are more cards to come that feature Percy and Lilly, but if you would like to see more of them now, why not pop over to the Jiggery Makery face book page and take a look. There are some wonderful creations both from Adele and the other members of the design team. It never ceases to amaze me that you can give the same image to a group of people and they all come up with different ideas. That's what I love most about crafting..the possibilities are endless.

It's been a bust day.My friend Dotty came for a visit and it was great. The time went so quickly..we chatted the whole time and she was cuddled by Jeffrey the whole time. Merlin (her dog) is growing so quickly. Dotty has sent me some new pictures of Merlin and has taken one of hopefully...BT willing.. I will share them with you tomorrow. After Dotty had gone, I took Reginald for a play date with Virgo mans dog Jack. I just think Reg couldn't remember how to play...he just lay down and sunned The funny thing was that Jack doesn't really know about cats yet and of course two of my cats had to come with us. Tankie and Milky followed us all the way down and spent their time up the trees. Poor Jack didn't know what had hit him. My cats are like..well it's only another dog..excuse me while I groom myself up this

Well the coffee is definitely calling now and then it will be time for dinner and then back to work. I hope that you are having a great weekend. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
