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.

Crafting Musketeers.....New Challenge

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful Crafting Musketeers. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next month. The theme for this challenge is Weddings. If you get the chance please pop over to the Crafting Musketeers blog and take a look at all the wonderful creations made by the rest of the team. They are a very inspiring bunch of crafters. The chapel image and the bride image are both from the fabulous Stamping Boutique. We are so lucky because they are our sponsors for this month. The design team worked with the same 3 images and all our cards are very different. To me that is the great thing about crafting..a group could all be given the same image and the creations would all be different.

For both of my makes, I decided to go a little gothy. One of my friends is getting married and she is a lot gothy but that it would be fun to make her a special card. The trouble is now I don't know which one to go For the first card I created a background and then added the chapel and the bride, which Ihad coloured with my promarkers. The background was created using my Lyra watercolours.At the end, I added some flowersoft to give the illusion of flowerbeds and flowers climbing up the chapel. I love my flowersoft and don't think that I use it enough..I shall have to remedy that.

So if you get a chance pop over to the Stamping Boutique and take a look at all the wonderful digis that they have available.

The sun is shining here in the mountains today..the sky is blue as well as the air, after my trial with BT today. I was so angry I actually spoke to a lady in the Chairman's office. She rang my number to speak to a friend who has been having problems for over 2 years and just at that moment my internet had been off all I let rip. She must be thinking goodness me the people in that village!.. but I did point out that the service is so bad..a service that we are all paying for and getting fobbed off with excuses. Lets just see if anything happens now.

All the cats are outside, sunning themselves on the studio roof. I must tell you about last night. As I've told you before Simon is now Simon the Brave..the spider hunter. He growls at them and then eats them. Well last night in bed, I was reading my book and Simon came on the bed. Suddenly he looked over my shoulder and started growling. I was immediately frozen..knowing what that growl meant. I looked over my shoulder and saw a spider. It must have been a big one because I could see it with out my glasses on..but all was well..Simon the Brave dealt with it. He is now officially my hero. I'm seriously considering renting him out to my spider hating

Well the coffee is calling and then I'll have to get on with some work. I hope that the weather is being kind to you wherever you are. Peace is still reigning here with the sun shining down on the little furry So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
