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.

JB-Crafting Supplies Just a piece of Paper.

 Todays cards are all design team makes for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I created all the backgrounds with distress inks and a piece of paper. I had a play the other day just creating backgrounds. Some paper I just inked directly, some I crumbled before inking and on some others I used glossy card. I then cut various shapes out, stamped them and mounted them to create the cards. I loved playing with the inks and then just seeing what I could create. Some I sprayed metallic inks on and some others I added some mica powders..just had a really good play..which I have to admit...I loved every moment.




The weather here today in the mountains is glorious. The sky is blue with white fluffy clouds. The type of clouds that when I was a child, I used to lie in the fields looking at and imagining what they looked like. Fluffy bunnies seemed to feature quite a bit..lol. I can't see any bunnies today but I'll keep looking.

All the cats have deserted me..they are all lay out on the studio roof. They keep coming in to have a little nibble of their food and then they go straight back out. Last night,when I went to bed there wasn't a cat in the house. But when I woke in the middle of the night..the three kittens were all curled up round me. Nosey is getting more and more like a little dog. He likes to lie at the top of the stairs so that he doesn't miss anything. If he happens to be outside when he hears someone arrive..he will run in to see who it is..and then just leaves again. He certainly lives up to his name..lol 

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has arrived to fix my computer for me. I seem to have lost a whole programme and I don't know how to get it back. He has just put the kettle on..so my timing is perfect..lol. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
