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 New Challenge

Todays cards are design team makes for the great team over at A Snowflakes Promise Challenge Blog. I do hope that you will pop on over and join in the fun. For this fortnights challenge we have been lucky enough to be sponsored by The Stamping Boutique. The images are fantastic and well worth adding to your collection of digis. I so love the two designs that I was lucky enough to work with.

The top image is called 'My little christmas presents Audrey' and I so enjoyed crafting with her. I coloured her with my promarkers, cut her out into an oblong shape and matted her onto some green card. I then took 2 pieces of christmas themed paper and mounted both them onto the same green card. I then layered the three on to the card and added my embellishments. I die cut a gold poinsettia and some green foliage and added that. Finally a bow made from twine.

The card below is made with the image 'Hippy Christmas', which just made me smile.

For this card, I began by laying a pale blue card covered in snowflakes onto some blue mirri. I then created a border using the same blue mirri. I then painted a layer of snow on to the top of the border and of course had to sprinkle the glitter onto the paint whilst it was still wet. I coloured the image with my promarkers and then cut it out. I added this to the card and finally added the greeting, ribbon and snowflake charm.

Well the coffee is calling and I've lots of work to do. I don't know what time I will be able to blog tomorrow or Thursday as the village is going to be out of electric. And I have to say that my cottage is as dark as night without any electric. No doubt the cats will blame I do hope that you will pop over to a Snowflakes Promise and take a look at the other team members fantastic work. So until next time...take care and happy crafting.
