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.

Gruffies and Guests....New Challenge



Todays cards are design team makes for the fabulous team over at Gruffies and Guests. A new challenge has just begun and has the theme 'Red and Green' or Anything goes. But as always please remember that your creation has to be featuring a Gruffie, Happy Hopper or House Mouse image...and you know that I love them all.



The other news Gruffie related that I have is that there is a DT call on at the moment. Why not come and join us on the team. All details are on the blog. I have seen many of your cards and know just how good they are...so why not apply.

.We are so lucky this month to have been sponsored by the great team over at Dis Digi Stamps. A great source of images.



Both of my cards are from the Gruffies and Guests cdrom brought to us by Joanna Sheen.

It's a horrible day here in the mountains today. All the cats have decided that inside is the best place to be is inside..lol. It seems today that I have more cats than I actually have..lol ..everywhere you look in the parlour there seems to be a cat. And of course..they all want to sit on me and help me blog. Nicademus likes nothing better than walking on the computer..lol..it makes for an interesting page. Jeffrey is stretched out on the couch and believe me there is no room for anyone else. I had a little shock this morning when I fed Flossie. I am intending to start weaning the kittens next week..which I might add is the right time to start...unless of course you are the dark tabby kitten. This morning as I put Flossies food into the pen..little dark tabby ran to the dish. Now this is the only kitten without a nickname as he is always asleep or feeding on Flossie. But this morning he is earning a nickname..and I think that it's going to be gannet. I have never seen in all my years of rescuing cats had a kitten head for the food without prompting. Even Flossie looked at him as much to say what on earth are you doing..lol. He really liked it though and he is now fast asleep.

Well the coffee is calling and then I will definitely be back. I had intended to blog another design team make last night ...but BT weren't playing...at all. I couldn't even get onto the internet/ And what makes me laugh is all the BT adverts saying how fast their internet is..well not here in rural Wales.So I'm heading to the caffeine and will be back soon. So until then..take care and happy crafting.
