Carving up clouds




“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo


Check the
Sky Watch Friday site for 100s of bloggers who took the time to notice the beauty of the sky and share their views from around the world.
















Artists uncover creations and Sky Watch fans seek out the most interesting skies to share with friends.

One of the nicest things I have discovered in the world of blogs are lots of nice folks sharing their interests, making the world a smaller a much nicer place.

A couple that deserve special mention this week include Sarah with her Beach Cottage Giveaway, over at Chenoa's Meandering Pearl there are the most darling little mini journals on show and Jill at Bittersweet is busy preparing a fresh batch of home made goodies for a farm show. Thank you ladies for making my day a little brighter.


Little yellow sewing box is one of the Rapt In Paper kits with my own addition of velvet strawberries and a mini album wrapped around a spool.

There could very well be an angel in those lovely clouds too. Love how the sun is nearly showing but the light is there. Beautiful scene.
