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....Day 2

Here I am again..though actually I'm amazed that I have managed it. BT have been up to their games again and my connection has been flashing on and off like a disco light. Every time that I've tried to upload it's gone off and it's a wonder that I haven't thrown the computer through the window in But enough of I am with a design team make for the fabulous Decoupage Delights. This is another card make from the upcoming new cd. For todays card, I have used some backing paper from my stash..but I thought that it went well with the image. On the cd there are two different backing really you could make three cards totally differently depending on your choice of backing paper. I loved the image..for some reason it reminds me of Cornwall..I don't know why..but I thought it would be a great card for anyone who had been on holiday or was just interested in fishing. I just loved the colour ways in the image and the way in which the different layers add up. It was so easy to cut but I loved the finished decoupage. Tomorrow, I will be back with another card and it will not be featuring any thing to do with

The weather hasn't changed but the mists do seem to be coming down the mountains...we may end up in Brigadoon again. The cats have all settled. I have just had an iced lolly..strange I know but I had a hot flush and thought it would help..which it did. But as I was enjoying it, Jeffrey arrived on my lap. He suddenly decided that it looked good and blow me he had a lick. I have never ever had a cat interested in an ice Milky and Tankie do have a thing for ice cream and if I ever have any..they sit right by me in the hope that I will leave them I had some friends visit yesterday and they were amazed that Gannie loves sultanas. I had put the remains of a cake on a cat dish and he was having a wonderful time picking the sultanas out. Each to their own I say.

Well the coffee is calling again and then it will be time to start moving the parlour round I think. I will have to remember to go down earlier tonight as I have decided to make fish pie for dinner last night. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
