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.

The Crafting Musketeers....New Challenge

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team at The Crafting Musketeers Challenge. I decided to use this wonderful image by Pollyanna Pickering. It is from her British Wildlife cdrom.Our sponsor for this month is the fabulous team over at Delicious Doodles. I hope that you will pop over to their Etsy store and take a look at the wonderful digis available.

The theme for this month over at the Crafting Musketeers is to use the sketch below as the basis of your card.

If you pop over to the Crafting Musketeers blog and take a look at all the other design team will see all the different ways that we have all worked the sketch.

For my card I began by mounting the image and the backing paper onto some burgundy card. I created a border of the same card. And then I mounted the image onto the border and added an embellishment of some flowers and a ribbon. I also edged everything with a peeloff.

The weather here in the mountains really hasn't made it's mind up minute it's raining and the next the sun is fighting to show it's face. All the cats have decided not to bother going out and Nicademus has taken over my wheelchair as the place to go to Yesterday as I sat working, Raven decided to sit on my legs and didn't move all It was like having a hot water bottle on my legs all day..quite nice

Well the coffee is calling and I have a pile of work to get done today. I'm so hoping to get some help tomorrow to empty the cupboard of doom. I hate the fact that I'm not able to do it myself and have to ask for help..but I've just got to get my big girl pants on and do it. I so wanted to get it emptied and then shelved. I need to do the cupboard before I start on the studio..that will be a trial all on it's So I'd better have a caffeine hit before I try to finish my work. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
