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 Christmas Mouse


Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at a Snowflakes Promise Challenge Blog. As well as the challenge blog, there is a facebook page. I hope that you will pop over and take a look. There were an amazing amount of entries to our last challenge..I hope that you will all pop over and join in the fun.

This fortnights challenge has just begun and we have been so lucky to  have been sponsored by the fabulous team over at Stitchy Bears.

For todays card I used this wonderful little's called a butterflies snowflake. That may seem strange but it has a wonderful saying that snowflakes are winters butterflies, but I loved the little mouse so much, I just used him on his own. The great thing about digi stamps is that you can colour them to fit whatever colour way that you like the most.

As you can see from the image above..on this one I used the red and green, where as the first image I went with blues and lilacs. I still haven't decided which one that I like the

What a day today..all thanks to BT. I said the immortal words yesterday...BT has been really good this weekend...and I should have known that it wouldn't be long. So here I was first thing this morning all set to go..blogs to do, photos to watermark and upload and work to put in folders ready for different posts and then it happened..BT said no way. It's at this moment 2.30 and I've been trying since 8am. Hopefully it will hold it together enough to let me finish this

Now to let you all know..Flossie has settled down really well and seems to be quite taken with She did spend the first few days hissing at him..and he just ignored now they will get nose to nose and talk to each other. I said the other day that Jeffrey was on three legs but he is now back on four. Bless him he is still the house baby and felt so sorry for himself, he had to come for Mother cuddles every day. But today he is back on form...goodness help us seems to be turning into a little the moment he is lay in the sun on the studio roof. He has started to sleep at the foot of my bed. When he arrived he was just so scared and used to hide when anyone see him now is such a joy.

Well the coffee is calling and I've still got more uploading to do,so keep your fingers crossed for me. I'm hoping that a coffee will keep me So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
