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.

JB-Crafting Supplies....One flower Stamp

Todays cards are all design team makes for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. All these three cards have been made with the same stamp..the only difference is the colouring medium that I have used. Cards 1 and 3 have both been watercoloured and card 2 was coloured with my promarkers. Just to show really the difference that your colouring medium can make. I used kraft card as the background, as it seems to be so popular. The only thing that I've got left to do is to finally make the decision between a red gingham or red dotty for cards 1 and 2 and from a selection of blues for card 3. Sometimes I just can't decide and have to look at them for a week or

All my cats have left home because the weather is dry. I tell them all the time to make the most of it because winter will be here before we know it and then you won't be able to see the couch for furry bodies. What makes me laugh is the way in which all the cats decide on their own place and goodness help anyone who sits in it..and that goes for humans as I have cat beds which they all turn their noses up at..yet get a cardboard box and there is chaos as everyone fights over it. They have lots of fleeces which they ignore until I use one to cover my legs and then they fight over sitting on it.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be back to painting. I'm waiting for some deliveries but I think that they won't be here until Thursday. I've ordered a steam cleaner...yes I know that I may have lost my mind but I have an urge to steam clean everywhere. I'm hoping that once I've done it the urge will leave me for a See what happens when you begin to tidy get strange ideas. I really want to do all my kitchen cupboards and my bathroom. It's the paw prints that are driving me mad. How on earth I've managed to get paw prints in some of the places I have..well they're going to be steam blasted So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
