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.

We are so lucky this week to have been sponsored by the fabulous MoonFlower Digi Stamps. I found it so hard to choose which image to work with but finally decided on this breath taking Oriental maiden.

Today's cards are design team makes for the wonderful SLS Lines. As most of you know, I adore these kind of skulls and love nothing more than colouring them. My plan with these skulls is to create a panel that will sit on the outside of my studio door..bringing a little brightness to my world outside. I don't think that my neighbours will complain seeing as they have put up a fence that is about 7 foot high. They did this because their dogs kept biting people that were coming up my path..so what did they do..they put up a 7 foot fence that runs from my gate to my front door..so now it's a bit like living in a compound. What made me laugh is that the area where the dogs were biting people..they never placed anything there. Now they have but it is only half the size of what is by my path and the dogs can still reach people when they really want to. So now when I look out of my front door I can't see anything if I'm downstairs..just a huge green fence. Their latest trick is to have added a length of string and nails, all along the top of the fence..I think that it is meant to stop my cats walking along the fence. My thought is that they should hang bells from the string as my cats just sit on the fence and twang the string..lol. I feel as if I have put up with a lot over the years ..even having a camera pointed at my front door for no good apparent reason...so my answer is to bring a little colour into my world..lol
