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.

Left of Center......New Challenge

Todays canvas is a design team make for the great team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun..'Things with Wings'.

We are lucky enough to have been sponsored this week by the fabulous Moonflower Digi Stamps. There are some wonderful images...well worth a look.
And as always, if you don't want to go with the new can always enter using the LOC theme..all details are on the challenge blog. For some LOC makes, I have painted these 2 skulls. You may remember me starting them ages ago...but I finally managed to finish them. The skulls were cream colour and are money boxes that I picked up cheaply from Home and Bargain. I actually bought up all they expect some more in the future.

Well the coffee is calling and I shall be back later with more design team makes. It has been a busy day already, with visitors and cat work to be done. The kittens are especially bouncy today and I think Flossie needs a lie down. They are just beginning to run around and are trying to climb the pen...goodness help us all. I shall begin weaning next usually means lots of gravy kisses and little kitten noses with cat food on. And then you also get the lets have a run round moments, when you discover just how many little places there are a kitten can get So until later..take care and happy crafting
