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 Lady

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. This card is from the fabulous new cd which has only just been released. The cd is called Marlene..Fashion and flowers.Since I began blogging a lot of you will know me by now and know that I had to make this card because of the hat. Yes I have a passion for large ,over the top Edwardian hats. I love the masses of flowers that they managed to secure to the top of the hat. I have never worn a hat since my school days where we had to wear a boater..which I hated with a passion. But as I keep telling my friends, it's about time that someone got married so I could buy a large hat. I've always said that as a large lady..I would need a large hat to balance me

For this card I mounted the image and the backing paper onto some gold mirri. I created a border with the same. The image has been decoupaged and as always with any Decoupage Delights work, it is a pleasure to cut out. I've been faced with some decoupage in the past that I'm sure has been designed by a person that has never had to cut any is such a pleasure to cut out any on this cdrom. On the card I added some lace and some pearls, which just felt right  to go alongside the image.

The weather here in the mountains today is unusual...the sun is Most of the cats have decided to take the chance that it's going to stay fine. At the moment Milky is sat on the studio roof. I have to laugh when I see her...when she sits down..she is almost triangular. She is a small cat with a huge tummy. Whenever Sparkle comes round, she seems to think that he should put more biscuits in the cat

Well the coffee is calling and I have some colouring to do. Sparkle has just arrived so I'm being spoilt by having my coffee made for me. I hope that the weather is being kind to you wherever you are. The clouds have now come over...I have a feeling that there are going to be a group of cats running in very So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
