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.

A Snowflakes Promise...A Brand New Challenge

Todays cards are design team makes for the new team over at A Snowflakes Promise Challenge Blog. I'm so excited by being on this new team, I can hardly contain The challenges run fortnightly and are a great way to get ahead with your own christmas cards...why not enter the challenges and before you know it, you will have a stash of christmas cards all ready to go. We were lucky to have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge..Bugaboo Digi Stamps and Sassy Studio Designs.
My first card above is made with a design from Bugaboo. I just loved this image of the lady in a cocktail glass. I have a number of friends that this would be the perfect card I have coloured the image with my promarkers and have mounted it onto some red mirri. I have also added a corner embellishment.
My second card is a design from the Sassy Studio Designs. I again coloured the image with my promarkers. I mounted the image and the backing paper onto some green card. I just love the colouring and making the decision of what colours to use. I find it so relaxing and I have to say that my images are always better dressed than I ever Mind you they always have the perfect figure to start with..something that I have never had. 
This image is called the candy cane elf and comes from the Sassy Studio Designs. I have to say that I'm so envious of her boots...just look at her friend Sunshine is the only person that I know would be ale to wear heels like this. Whenever I see her shoes, I always have a serious case of shoe
The sun is trying very hard to see if it could possibly shine. It has rained on and off today but at the moment the sun is trying to peep through the clouds.The inquest is on Friday, so I won't be blogging then but I will be back on Saturday.I have my outfit ready and my hair has been dyed, all ready to go. I have dyed my hair in honour of Henry who always said that he wanted me to grow old I have dyed it green but it seems to have gone green into dark blue but I have to say that I love it. After waiting so long to get the inquest over with..time seems to be flashing past. Before I know it,it will be all over and then I don't know what I'll be doing or thinking. Everything has been leading to this moment and I have just concentrated on getting to the inquest. I suppose after the event I will have got to the point where I must make decisions about the rest of my life...a life without Henry. We shall have to see.
Well the coffee is calling and then I need to photograph a load of work..light willing and then I have a lot of colouring to do. At least it will keep me busy.I hope that you will pop over and take a look at The Snowflakes Promise Blog. The other members of the design team have created some wonderful makes..well worth a look. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
