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....Game,Set and Fabulous

Here I am again...with a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. All this sunshine has made me think of being outside when I was young. My friend and I were members of a tennis club..hard to remember a time when my legs worked I'm sure that the reason we joined was due to all the attractive young men that also went..but we always had a good time. All my memories of that time recall sunny days and chasing the ball about madly on a grass court.What a lifetime ago now. Anyways will those thoughts running through my head, I couldn't resist making this card. Not..I would like to add did I ever look that good in my tennis outfit but it was still Adele, the artist behind all the Jiggery Makery ladies has the knack of making all of them look gorgeous..and they are always a pleasure to work with.

For this make, I began by making a three fold tag card and backed each tag with some backing paper. In the middle I added the tennis star, eating her strawberries and cream..I could do with some of The outside panels, I decorated with strawberries and flowers. I coloured the tennis star with my promarkers and finally added the sentiment. As far as this card is concerned, to me, it celebrates a good place in my life and provides lots of many happy memories.

As you can probably guess the sun is still shining here in the mountains. The cats are all stretched out on the studio roof and all the kittens are sulking because I won't let them Soon enough they will be big enough and I will have to go through the trauma of letting them through the window into the wide world. And goodness help the village when the tabby terrorists are loose.

Well the coffee is calling again and then I'm going to get the water colours out. I will be sharing all the makes with you all very soon. I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend..I've a pile of work to do..thank goodness and will be back with you all on Monday. So until then...take care and happy crafting.
