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.....Vintage Fashion

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful Decoupage Delights. This image and backing paper are from the cdrom Marlene Vintage Fashion. I just love this image featuring a very 20s looking lady. I really adore the backing paper because it is unusual and have used it lots of times on different cards. I hope you will pop over to the Decoupage Delights facebook page and take a look at all the other cds that are available. Also there are lots of freebies at different it's well worth keeping your eye out. A new cd is due out soon as exciting times ahead.

The sun is shining here today in the mountains. And as usual when the good weather is here...all the cats leave the house. They are all stretched out on the studio roof. Jeffrey decided that he was going to sleep with me last night and I have to say..he takes up quite a bit of the bed..bless him. He was stretched out as long as he could and didn't move all night.Simon had his nose put out of joint because he thinks that he should be the only one next to

Last night I decided to do some inking and goodness me I made a right much that all my nights work ended up in the bin.. my temper was a sight to I had began by inking some cards with different coloured distress inks. I then wanted to stamp images over the top but didn't have the patience to let it dry there is no-one to blame but myself. I was trying to stamp and then two of the cats decided to have an upset right on top of me..hence the stamping block got moved and smudged everything. It's a wonder you didn't hear me I had worked on four cards and somehow they all got paws in wet ink tend to make a mess. So my intention this afternoon is to start again..cats willing of course.

Well the coffee is calling and then I shall return to the inking. I think a nice large brew will help me concentrate. I was very good yesterday and sorted a lot of my stamps out and put them back into the right packages. I even cleaned a lot of they are ready to go next time I use them. They are the self clinging stamps and I'm well known for ending up with the back of them covered in glitter and cat hair. So I'm feeling very virtuous I will let you know how I get on. I shall be back on until then..take care and happy crafting.
