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.

Crafting Musketeers...The Tabby

For the first time ever, I having to redo a blog post. I had this image ready to blog yesterday and had scheduled it to load..but it didn't and has now disappeared altogether. So some where in the ether is a blog post about this beautiful tabby cat, If you see him, please tell him to come

This card is a design team make for the fabulous team over at the Crafting Musketeers. This months challenge has the theme Anything Goes. We have been lucky enough to have been sponsored by the great team over at Crafty Ribbons.

The prize for this months challenge is some ribbons. The design team were lucky enough to receive some ribbons to work with..and I have to say that they are fantastic quality. I used this blue ribbon with green dots on my card because they fit in so well with the colours on my card.

My card features this lovely image of the tabby and is from Joanna Sheens cdrom...Leslie Anne Ivory Cats. As a cat lover this has been part of my library ever since it was released. It has since been retired but it is still possible to get hold of on certain selling sites. For the card, I have mounted the image and the backing paper onto some blue card. I created two borders with the same and added the ribbons either side. I then just added a bow.

I hope that you will pop over to the blog and join in the fun. The challenge runs until the end of the month and the design team has produced some wonderful inspiration for everyone to enjoy.

Well now I'm definitely off for a coffee now. And as I said before...take care and happy crafting.
