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......A Christmas View

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful company of JB-Crafting Supplies. I have used some of the Hobby Art 'Scenic Stamps' to make this card. I only used one distress ink pads to make the whole image. I first stamped the image and then used some water to paint the scene. To use the distress ink as watercolour, I just stamped the pad onto my glass cutting mat and added some water using a paintbrush. I also inked the edges using my blending tool. The mat onto which I placed the scenic oval has also been coloured using my blending tool. And of course I just had to add some I then added the ovals onto a card which I had covered with some blue based background paper from my stash. There is something that really appeals to me using the one colour and adding the glitter to give the whole scene a frosty morning look.

I'm amazed that I have finally got to blog. BT have been at their worst and I can feel another complaint coming on. It just seems to be getting worse by the moment and it annoys me so much. I just love being on the design teams that I'm on and spend a lot of time creating the cards and other things..yet BT are causing me real problems getting my work online. The bad language that rolls around these mountains lately has to be heard to be I wouldn't mind if it was bad weather or something but I think that they have no excuse..they are just happy to take my money and just don't care.

Enough of the moaning now. The kittens are making every day very special. They seem to be growing so quickly and I do believe that they are going to be big cats because their feet are enormous. Three of them have nick names depending on their personalities. There's Fiesty the black and white little girl..because that's just what she is. There is now Nosey and Bumble. Nosey is the light coloured tabby..who now spends her days at the front of the pen watching everything that is going on and Bumble is the black one. I called him Bumble because he just seems to clomp his way to the front of the pen, walking over everyone in his way and then sits there with his head wobbling. It won't be long until they start to be weaned and then goodness help me. They already seem to be showing interest in their Mums is forever putting his feet in the milk bowl.

Well the coffee is calling and then I will be back with another design team make. So until then..take care and happy crafting
