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...Happy Halloween

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. I tried so hard to blog last night but of course BT weren't playing. But then I thought to myself..well make the most of it and use this card to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing , I hope that you have a fabulous time.

For this card I took the image of Tess..the glamorous witch and cut out 3 circles featuring her head and shoulders. I coloured them all differently with my promarkers and added tattoos and different makeup. I then created the two banners. I then drew 3 insects and added an orange hand. It was a fun card to make, made all the easier by the fabulous penmanship of Adele, the owner of Jiggery Makery. If you get the chance, please pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and take a look at all the different pieces made by the others on the design team. What I love is the fact that we can all be given the same image and yet all come up with very different makes.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be on with some work. As I'm sit here, I can see little Fiesty sat at the front of the pen, watching the work go by. She really is a sweet little thing. All the kittens are starting to play about with each other. It is so funny to watch. It's liver and onions with mashed potato and gravy for dinner seemed just the thing for I hope that you all have a good night. Until next time...take care and happy crafting.
