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.....New Challenge

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous team over at A Snowflakes Promise. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next 2 weeks. As always the theme is a christmas or winter themed card.

For this challenge, we are lucky enough to have been sponsored by the wonderful team over at Bugaboo Stamps. There are a great amount of images that I would love to was really hard picking one to work with. But as most of you know, I am a crazy cat I just had to choose this one with the adorable cat.

For my card, I coloured the image with my promarkers and then mounted the image onto some red card. I mounted some christmas paper to some more of the red card and then added the topper. This card would be so perfect for a lot of my friends who are also cat mad and the good thing is that you can colour the cat to the same as theirs.

And while I'm talking of cats, I will update you on the little ones. I can now tell you in all honesty..they are all This morning as soon as my voice was heard, four tiny furry bodies ran to me. And I had to walk into the parlour with one one each foot and two others hanging onto my skirt. It took until 2 oclock for them to wear themselves which time I was ready for a lie down As I speak, they are all fast asleep with their Mum..but I know that within the next hour, they will be up and at it again. Reg has been so good with them and quite often can be found with 2 or 3 kittens curled up on him. They all play in his dog bed as well.

Well the coffee is really calling and then it will be time for starting dinner. It is my favourite dinner, which I have once every two weeks. It is fish, small potatoes and salad. I had a shopping delivery this morning...mostly cat related I have to say..and I love it when the salad is fresh. Thinking about it, I have come to the conclusion that I am a bit fish obsessed..I love it. I usually have fish 3 times a week in one form or another and I could have it every night and would be quite happy. Sometimes I do have to admit to having to hide my plate from the furry  I'm off to hit the until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
