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...I just couldn't help it

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. And I really couldn't help know that I've picked this image before but it is one I just adore. I was actually working on some vintage motorbike images to share with you, when I found this image which I had printed out. I had used the decoupage on another card and this topper was what remained. So really I had no other

I just love all the vintage images that are available from Decoupage Delights. I'm very excited about the upcoming cd rom. There are many unusual vintage designs which are perfect for the men in your life and I just can't wait for it to come out. Next week I will share one of the vintage motorbike images that are due to be on it. So far I have made two versions using the same image...goodness only knows just how many I will have made by next

I'm still working on a card for a little girls first birthday but my head is full of another design. I'm so sad that I lie in bed at night having ideas about cards that I could make. My new idea involves 2 digi designs,parchment and needlework..I don't even know if it will work yet...I'm going to have to have a go..else it will drive me crazy. If it works, I'll share with you all soon...if it doesn't I'll just keep on with the original thought in a different way.

Well the coffee is calling and the colouring pens are as well. On the cat front..they are all stretched out on the stairs..pretending to be well behaved. They have all had their lunch and are now sleeping off their full tummies. It's the one time of the day when a little peace By dinner time they will all be running round and round, telling me that they haven't been fed for an Anyways until next time..take care and happy crafting.
