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...Navy Girls

Today's cards here are all design team makes for the fabulous team over at Jiggery Makery. I just adore all the ladies that Adele makes and have serious figure I thought it would be fun today to share the ladies with a navel theme. There are new ladies on the design team and they are creating some wonderful cards..why not pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and take a look. They take my breath away. Always a wonderful source of inspiration.

 And the same lady again but in a different colourway...just because I could. Oh how I wish I had long legs like this. Oh to dream...

All my cards have been coloured using both my copics and my promarkers. I tend to mix and match, depending what mood I'm in. My collection of pens sit in boxes by my they are always at hand. But as I sit here I also notice that my acrylic paints, pearlescent paints and my watercolours are within reach....I can admit to being a bit of a colouring The great thing about Adele's ladies is that you can colour the fabulous outfits whatever you decide. It's like the dress designing I loved to do as a child.

And for a bit of fun...I have included this lady...because she's in the

Well I'm off again and intend to get a coffee. Flossie is now on the upper floor of her duplex. As soon as it was put in place..she was on it...even before her blanket was up there. Now she has her blankie and is curled up asleep...and quiet for once. All the others are peace finally reigns. I hope that you all have a great weekend and that the weather remains fine. I've just been told that it's supposed to get colder..but as a woman of a certain doesn't bother Anyway whatever happens..take care and happy crafting.
