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.

Today's cards are all design team makes for the wonderful company of Decoupage Delights. These are all designs from the fabulous cdrom..Marlene..Fashion and Flowers. I absolutely adore this cd both for the images and the backing paper.
As most of you know..I do have a passion for vintage fashions and a special love for large Edwardian hats. I'm sure at some point I will have an occasion to buy myself such a hat..lol
I love the variety of designs and the fashions. I just love the paper on the card below.
And the exciting news is that the image, backing paper and insert that I've used on the card below is going to be a freebie at the end of the week on the Decoupage Delights fb page. So keep your eye out ready to claim your free download. I would want this so much just for the backing paper. I have found this backing paper so useful for a number of projects.

Todays canvas is a design team make for the great team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. This is destined to sit somewhere in my kitchen. It features two of my well known favourite things...owls and coffee. Both of which have a special place in my heart and in my life. The owl had to be an orangy colour in memory of Henry and you will all know my need for caffeine..lol
