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.

Decoupage Delights.....Vintage Dreaming

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. I have chosen to work with the fabulous cd of Marlene..Fashion and Flowers. I just love these vintage photographs. This card has been made using an 8x8 card. I took some gold mirri and layered the burgundy backing paper onto it. I also layered the image onto gold mirri and completed the decoupage of the rose. I also created a border using the mirri again and a small strip of the backing paper. Onto this border I added some cream velvet ribbons and some cream card candi. There are just so many wonderful images and backing papers on this cd, that it's hard to choose. This is a great cd to have in your crafting library and I can honestly say that it is one you will go back to time and time again. I hope that you will pop over to the facebook page of Decoupage Delights and take a look at all the cds that are available.

The weather today is still chilly but the wind has finally quietened down. Most of the large cats have all decided to go out. The only large ones that have stayed in are my two homebodies..Raven and Pinkie.I think the reason that they choose to stay in is that they are the nosiest of the bunch and are scared of missing anything. The kittens are all asleep..I'm not surprised because they were playing for most of the night. I have to admit to the urge to go and wake them up..or to just keep tapping them, as they do to Simon is learning more and more off Jeffrey and has started to tap my face with his paw..just as Jeff does to me every morning. And Simon every talks in the same way and has always a comment to make on

Well the coffee is calling and then I have some cards to finish. I did make all the inserts yesterday, so today I only have to finish them all off and then they will be ready to post off. And then it will be down to sewing I think. Before I start sewing I will have to tidy up around my chair..after all the things that the kittens have played with have been brought to my feet..they are learning early to bring presents to me. Later on no doubt it will be mice and other creatures. I shall have to start bracing myself now I So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
