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.

The Crafting Musketeers......New Challenge

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful Crafting Musketeers. We are so blessed that today is our 3rd. Birthday as a team and all want to thank everyone that has supported us and entered our challenges. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the following month. The theme for this month is it's a perfect excuse to focus on what you would really like summer to be. As I write this I'm wondering when we will be seeing some more no body would think it was May.
We are so lucky to have been sponsored this month by the fantastic team over at Sunsational Stamps. They provided the team with the images to work with and I was lucky enough to be able to work with the pirate. I thought that it would make the perfect card for a little boy.
As I look out of my window, all I can see is the sun shining and hear the sound of banging over powering the birdsong. I as so amused by different messages that I received from lots of seems that I'm not the only one to suffer bank holiday weekend power tool We should form a support group for people who would like the chance to hear some other than a chainsaw, banging or thudding on a bank
I'm so relieved to actually have internet connection..last night, the whole of the top of the village was offline and this morning was exactly the same...who knows when it will go off again. I have started to growl every time I see a BT advert. The best service they say..the worst in the world I say. It has been officially acknowledged that we have the worst service in the whole of the U.K Even a BT customer service person said that they had never seen anything as low as we have.So I may be writing this now but who knows when I will be able to upload
Well the coffee is calling and then I've got two birthday cards to finish.The cupboard is now sorted and it's really easy to get to anything. But yesterday I had to laugh..I went in it to get my beads out for a project and remembered to lock the door. Well as soon as I turned away..pathetic noises began coming from the cupboard. Unbeknown to me Simon had jumped in and had got himself locked in there in the dark. lol. I don't think that he will be doing that again in a hurry. So until next time...take care and happy crafting..and I hope that you manage to have a few quiet signature
