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....On her travels

Here I am again with another design team make.This card has been made for the fabulous team over at Jiggery Makery. I just love this image. I began by colouring her with my promarkers and then cut her out. While I was making this card..a song..All around the world..kept going round and round my head..and it still is when I see this card. That's the reason that I decided to use the map as a backing paper..after all it doesn't matter how far friends are apart in doesn't matter in the great scheme of things.

I do hope that you will pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and take a look at all the other fabulous makes that are there. The other members of the design team have created some wonderful projects and they are a wonderful source of inspiration.

It's still as cold as before and none have the cats have moved from their cosy places. The kittens however have decided that the time has come for a little quiet You could not believe just how much noise 3 kittens can make. As I sit here I can see the three of them..they are all curled up together on the couch and look like three perfect little angels goodness only knows just how long it will last though.

Well the coffee is calling again and I'm wondering what to make for dinner. I may make an omelette..I have some mushrooms that need using and I'm hoping that I have some salad left in the fridge. Sounds like a plan. So I think I will have that caffeine hit and then I may do some hoovering. It's got to be done and seeing as I'm having an easy dinner it seems to be the perfect time. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
