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.....Bright Flowers

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful company of JB-Crafting Supplies. For this card I have used acrylic paint and a stencil. First I secured the stencil and covered it with white acrylic paint and then let it dry. I then used a sponge and added my colours. The white underside has really made the colours pop. When it was all dry, I went round the edges of the petals and leaves with a white pencil. If you need or want any crafting goodies, then just pop over to JB-Crafting Supplies. Julie is a very talented crafter and will no doubt help you find what you want.

Looking out of my window, I can't believe that the sun is shining. All through the morning it has hammered down and I was laughing because today is officially the first day of summer.And now, the sun is shining and the cats are stretched out on the studio roof. The kittens seemed to take it as a personal affront when it rained. And then last night I thought to myself that since they have been allowed out it has hardly rained at all..where as the older cats are well used to the normal village weather. If they get this affected by the rain..goodness only knows what they will make of snow later in the year. I always find it so funny to see a cat approach snow for the first time. It's as if they want to cover an area without actually touching Milky has gone out as well...the last 24 hours she has spent in a box on the couch. She wasn't into sharing with any one and only got out of it to eat. I have to laugh at her and this was brought to the house by a friend who knows how much they love a box and I honestly don't think it's been empty since it

Well the coffee is calling and then I will be back with another design team make. So until then...take care and happy crafting.
