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....Sheep in Sunshine

Todays card is a design team make for the great company of JB-Crafting Supplies. I should have done it  yesterday but BT were not playing . The card above has been made using the stamp set from Hobby Art featuring the sheep which I intend to use on my Christmas cards, but I can think of so many times that I could use this image. For this card, I began creating the background oval. I drew some grass and flowers and added a little sparkle. I coloured it with my copics. I stamped out the sheep, the hat and the sunglasses..they were also coloured with my copics. I then cut them all out and added them to the oval. I then mounted it onto some dark blue card along with some backing paper from my stash.

It's a strange day today. I had the nurse first thing for my bloods and then I had a delivery from Sainsburys. I have done a basket comparison with Tesco and very surprisingly Sainsburys came in a lot cheaper. So I ordered from there. The biggest difference was the cat food and as you can guess..I buy rather alot. I'm so lucky that I don't have fussy cats. I know so many people that do have and have heard so many tales of cats pulling faces when confronted with certain brands. I think my cats work on the theory that before they came here they had to search for now it's given at regular points through the day..they'd better eat I also think that competition helps...if they don't eat it..some one else Flossie seems to be growing bigger daily..I don't think that she will be that long until the big moment...bless her. Just keep your fingers crossed that it all goes well. I just worry what happened to her before she came here. She is so loving and desperate for fuss. Sometimes I wish that I had a good leg to kick people with. How dare they just dump her.

Well the coffee is seems to have gone on must just be one of those It's fish, new potatoes and salad for dinner. One of my favourites. My menus will be changing as the weather gets colder. The slow cooker will be dusted off and back on friends laugh how I play spot the meat..I throw every type of vegetable I can get my hands on in...and a very small amount of It makes it go so much further.  So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
