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.

Just for Fun Challenge Blog

Well today is an exciting day for me. My first card made for the Just for Fun Challenge Blog. I'm lucky enough to have just joined the wonderful design team over there. Why not pop over and have a look? Why not join in the fun. There are some really amazing talented crafters on the design team and I'm so lucky to be working with them. They have been very patient with me and many dumb moments. I readily admit to not being the best with a computer and still being in need of advice on many occasions..and the team have always been there for me. One of the cards that I decided to make was this one featuring this cute puppy from the Moorheads cdrom from Crafters Companion. The oval doily is from the Tonic die range. It is a very simple design for me but I really wanted to use a little black for a change. When I saw this little dalmation, I thought he would be perfect. I will be sharing my other design team card with you tomorrow..I hope you will pop along and have a look..take care and happy crafting.
