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....Panda Days

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. This image is from their Wildlife cdrom. I had great fun with this design, I have matted and layered 2 of the matching papers onto some silver linen mirri and added them to a black card. The panda image is only one of three on a I could make this card 3 times. I have used some silver peeloffs to edge in different places and finally added some card candi. I think that this card is suitable for anyone.
I hope that you will pop over to the Decoupage Delights face book page and take a look at the fabulous cds that are available. It won't be long until the new cd is out...I'm so looking forward to it. From what I've already seen..there are so many images that I could use for my male friends.
As I'm sitting here I can hear chaos happening in the kitchen. I dread to think what is A few minutes ago there was a crashing noise and Nosey Norman and Simon came dashing upstairs..and then acted as if they hadn't done anything. I've never seen 2 kittens trying to look as if they were totally Simon seems to be determined to get outside..but it isn't going to happen any time soon. Bless him he is a little dim. Jumping is not his He is the one cat that can be walking on the worktop and manages to fall off. His ideas work quicker than his brain. As you can tell when you see him fall off things 20 times a day.
I started clearing my corner on Monday afternoon and have nearly finished. There was a time yesterday when I wished that I had never I was stuck in my chair surrounded by craft goodies, rubbish and about 20 boxes that needed sorting. And I couldn't get I worked away for hours and now I have only about 3 boxes that need putting away but I have to say that I'm worn When I was clearing I did find the kittens hiding place..I know now where the dog treats disappeared to.
Well the coffee is calling and I think that a good dose of caffeine will help. And then I have some work to finish.Legs up today I think. So until next time...take care and happy crafting
