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 Christmas Sheep

Today's make is a design team make for the fabulous JB-Crafting Supplies. I just had to share these fabulous sheep, brought to us by Hobby Art. There is just something about the faces on these sheep. Living where I do..most of the sheep round here actually do look like this most of the time. I shall be playing with these stamps at the weekend, playing with different colourways and different looks. 

For this card, I first picked two papers from my stash and layered them both onto purple card. I then created an oval scene for the sheep to be in front of. For the sheep, I stamped them out with my memento ink pad and then coloured them with my copic pens. I finally cut them out and glued them to the front of the card. I of course just had to add some

The weather here in the mountains is glorious today...what a change. The sun is shining and all the cats have decided to go out. There is some serious sun bathing going on, on the studio roof. I also have some news. It has turned out that Flossie is expecting kittens. So I'm even more annoyed with the people that dumped her. She has already had a litter before she came here and now it turns out that they let her out without even bothering to get her doctored. She is doing well though and is in good health. When she has had these kittens and they have been weaned, I will be making sure that she is doctored. As I type she is curled up asleep and I can see her tummy moving to it's own tune. I have moved her to a larger pen, so she has plenty of room. I get so any with people..there was no need for them to get a cat if they didn't intend to do their best for her. She is so pretty and so affectionate...she didn't deserve to be treated like she has. I will keep you all updated.

Well the coffee is calling and I've lots of lovely work to do. I've already decided that it's chicken curry for dinner tonight. It's what a term as an easy dinner. I made a sponge pudding for old fashioned syrup sponge. It was so nice. What's your favourite pudding? I have a really sweet tooth. My friend Sunshine makes the most delicious brownies...I'm lucky enough to be sent some occasionally.My friend Pretty also makes some wonderful makes at Christmas...I must remember to put my order in As the caffeine is calling..take care and happy crafting.
