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.

SLS Lines....New Release Day

Today's creations are design team makes for the great team over at SLS Lines. It's new release day today which means that I got to play with these wonderful new designs. The first is the rock man. As soon as I saw this I knew that I would have to work with it. I created the background using my H2o's to create a light effect. And when I saw the black oval that he is standing in..I thought it would form an O into the rock. What a great card to send to someone who either plays the guitar or just loves rock music. I know so many people that this card would suit.

The next new release is this image of a flapper type dancer. To me it just cried out for the glitter. After all she is making jazz I created the background using my distress inks and a stencil. I coloured the image with my promarkers and added some stickles glitter glue. The really great thing about this image is that you can use whatever colour way you like and suit it to the person that you are sending the card to.

All morning, here in the mountains, the rain has lashed down and the wind has raged. At the moment the sun is trying to shine and the wind has calmed down a bit..but it's still a rather wild sort of day. All the cats are in and have all decided where to lie. Milky and Rave are both on my legs..ignoring each Nicademus and Obie are asleep in the window. Gannie is asleep on his rug and the others are just dotted round the cottage. It seems all very peaceful at the moment but goodness only knows how long that will last. Next weekend is going to be chaos and upset all the cats. The new kitchen flooring is going down. I'm having half carpeted and the work area I'm having lino put down. What a joy it will be..but after all the upset with the cats over the parlour carpet..they will really dislike me when the kitchen is done. Personally I can't wait. I'm so excited. I think when you've waited a long time for something and it's finally going to can't quite believe it. I've also got the bedroom to change round. I have a new bed arriving and I want to decorate at the same time. I'm going to paint it dark red with gold accents. My collection of angel pictures are going to go on the ceiling and surround the bed. I'm aiming for dark and quite gothic..I will share pictures when it's finally done.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be back to work for me. I hope that you will pop over to the SLSLines blog and take a look at all the other creations of the team. They are an inspirational group of ladies and have created some wonderful work. There is also some time left to enter the current why not come and join in the fun. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
