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.

JB-Crafting Supplies...The Vintage Shoe

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous JB-Crafting Supplies. Just a simple card showing off this wonderful shoe stamp from the Stampendous range. I have made this card just by matting and layering some printed mirri from my stash onto a 6x6 card and adding the stamped image to the top layer. I also added a silver bow. I loved the detail that has been managed to be incorporated into the stamp and it can either be used on it's own as a focal point or would make a perfect embellishment to a vintage card.

 The weather here at the moment in the mountains is lovely..just a bit breezy..which I don't mind. At least the sun is shining which I never poured it down early this morning. But now all is fine and it means that the cats have all gone out. Apart I have to say apart from Jeffrey who for some reason has decided to take over my legs. And what a weight he is..but at least it's like a huge hot water

Well the coffee is calling and after that it will be time to refind the parlour. The cupboard of lost memories has now been emptied and has nearly been sorted. The cats are not happy because there is nothing to sit Nothing is going back in it at the fact now I've been through it all there is nothing to go back. I have 1 bag of material and leather which I have plans for and a bag of sewing threads which will go in the studio when that's done. I've sorted a bag of blankets suitable for the cats, which can live in the airing cupboard. Apart from my coin collection and Henrys pictures there is nothing else that I'm keeping..all the rest is bagged and on the patio waiting for the skip to arrive. Do I feel virtuous..not yet..I'll probably feel better when I can see the But I think that I did too much I'm just taking it easy today. I may feel better later after I've kept my legs up for a while. Later this week is time to start the studio...goodness help So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
