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......The Funky Chickens

Here I am again with another design team make. This is for the wonderful company of JB-Crafting Supplies. I have been lucky enough to work with this wonderful stamp set from Hobby Art...The Funky Chickens. For this make I began by using a stamp from my stash and created the backing paper. I stamped the three cockerels from the stamp set using my memento inkpad and then coloured them with my promarkers. These cockerels really make me smile and I thought it would make a great boys out on the town card. Sometimes you need to make a card just to make someone smile and these chickens really fill that gap.

If you need or want any crafting supplies, please pop over to the JB-Crafting Supplies face book page and take a look. Julie the owner is so helpful and will no doubt find what you need. She also supplies an amazing variety of materials and knitting supplies. Well worth a look.

It has stopped raining here in the mountains and the heat has returned. All the cats have departed outside again, apart from Jeffrey, who is staying in because he's not too well. For the past few weeks, I have been driven crazy by people who don't put their dogs on a lead and are quite happy for their dogs to run off and chase my cats. At this time last year, I had 5 of my cats bitten by loose dogs and it seems to be starting again. Jeffrey has been bitten by a dog and has a poorly leg. So he is staying in to recover..bless him.

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has just I will be spoilt and not have to make my own. It always tastes better to me when I haven't had to make So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
