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.

Jiggery Makery....... A Spanish Feel

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. For the card today, I decided to use the digi of the fabulous Pamela and have a play with the design on the skirt. As you will know, this week I have been playing with paper cutting and thought that I would have a go for her skirt. I copied the shape of her skirt and drew a pattern on it. I then cut out the pattern and coloured it black. I over lay the cut paper over a piece of red card. The top half of the digi, I coloured with my promarkers and then joined the two pieces together. I added a ribbon rose at her waist, alongside some jewels on the waist and some in her hair. I called it 'The Spanish Feel' because when I was a little girl I always thought that Spanish ladies always dressed in red and I had been given a Spanish dancer who was in red and black and there was a tapestry picture of a flamenco dancer and she was also in red and black. So it just stayed in my mind. Thinking back, my mother had a picture called the red skirt..of another Spanish dancer. I still have the tapestry lives on the landing.

I do hope that you will pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and take a look at all the wonderful digital designs, created by Adele, the owner. I just love the variety of pin ups that are available and all the different creations that you can make. There is a lady for anything that you want to convey on your cards.

As I'm sitting here writing this, I'm watching the of my favourite things to do and I'm also surrounded by the cats who are sulking because it's The kitchen flooring is in process og going down..I won't know myself when it's all finished. The kittens keep going to the top of the stairs and looking at the builder laying the floor...goodness only knows what they are thinking. Gannie has made himself a nest on one of my shelves..and has moved my books to make himself space. Nosey favours lying on a box on the landing and Simon is always within arm distance of Sprout is sat on the window sill..waiting for the rain to stop, Rave is of course on the wing of my chair sulking because I'm blogging and she can't sit on my lap.The only ones outside in the rain are Milky and Jeffrey. Milky just loves getting wet and enjoys shaking all over me when she come in. Jeffrey will moan for a long time when he does come in...but he will do that no matter what the

Well the coffee is calling and then I have a couple of cards to make. The only problem is I have no idea at the moment what to do. I'm hoping that my new bed will arrive next no doubt I will have to paint the bedroom..might as well get it done. I'm hoping that I have enough paint to paint it a dark red. I'm hoping to do it dark red with gold highlights..a bit of glamour for my room..mind you if you can see anything other than the books you'll be I'll be back later with another design team until then...take care and happy crafting.
