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....Days 3 and 4

Today's cards are both design team makes for the wonderful Decoupage Delights. I would have done one of these yesterday but BT wouldn't let I tried all day to get a signal and it just wasn't having it. So I finally gave p and decided to do two today. Both these images are on the very imminent hopefully will be available in the next week or so. I'm so excited. It will be called 'Those were the days' and will feature mainly images for men..but on a personal many of these images would be suitable and something really different for some of my female friends. The image above shows a female rider on a vintage motorbike..something unusual but brilliant. I have friends that rode motorbikes during the war and in the 50s and would just love to receive this card. Even memories of their Mothers riding motorbikes..either way a great card.

The card below even though it features car of my friends was involved in motor racing during the 50s and 60s and was quite famous..and I know that she would love this card. On both cards, I have not used the backing papers from the cd but have used papers from my stash..just to show you that even though they are vintage images, you can mix and match with what backing papers you use. The cd has some fantastic backing papers on it and I know that I will be using them in all my crafting.

As I'm sat here typing, the sun is shining and all the cats are outside. As I couldn't get BT to play fair yesterday, I decided to move things round in the parlour. The new armchair and the sideboard are now in place and it will be about another day until it's finished. The sideboard held a lot of my stamp collection..I do admit to having over 1000..and it grows every year. When I say 1000..that's counting a set as you can see it's all quite mad. But in my defence, I have been collecting for over 20 years and have stamps from all over the world. My friend Sunshine bought me a set back from India and I do have a collection of old printing blocks which are fabulous. And I always look on them as an investment as I've used them over and over again.

Well the coffee is calling and then I don't know what I'm going to do. I do have some paper cutting to do..I may do all depends how I feel after a coffee I've decided what to make for dinner..which is always a good's going to be plaice with new potatoes and vegetables. As always it's a favourite. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
