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.....The Vintage Fish

Here I am again with a design team make for the wonderful Decoupage Delights. This image is from their upcoming new cd..'Those were the Days'. I'm so lucky this week to be able to share a card a day for the next 7 days, featuring some of the fabulous images that are due to be included in this wonderful cd. These images are going to be the one that you go to when looking for a card for a man. They are all fantastic images but include some unusual images. I especially love the motorbike themed ones and the classic cars. As I said I will be sharing a card a day with you for the next week. Besides the images there are some fantastic backing papers that I know will come in so useful for all of your crafting. I also love the fact that this cd is vintage area of crafting that I adore.

For my first card, I chose this image of the fish. I loved the way that the backing paper features a scene and that it had a sentiment that said 'what a catch'..I think that this would make a perfect card for any fisherman but also perhaps they enter competitions as well..what a way to congratulate them. I know that there are lots of fishing cards out there but I think that this one is something a little different. I'll be back tomorrow with another image from this upcoming cd.

I've managed to have a caffeine hit and I've taken some more tablets, in the hope that my nose will recover shortly..or that at least the pain will go away. I never realised just how much 2 and a half stone of cat can hurt when aimed at your face. I have to say that it wasn't a decided aim ..more like the fact that my head was in the way of a cat I'm sat here wondering what to make for dinner tonight,,maybe fish pie or steak pie I think. I just can't believe that it's the first of August today. Time seems to go so quickly.

Well the coffee is calling again and then it will be time to get all my pile of work sorted. I'm currently working on two canvasses for later in the month and they're proving to be tricky..thanks to all the help that I'm getting from the cats..the canvasses have had to change colour twice..just to cover up the Sometimes they look if they were meant but sometimes the paw print is so clear and so not meant..they have to be covered with another layer of So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
