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

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at a Snowflakes Promise. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next fortnight. The theme as always is Christmas or a Winter themed make. We have been so lucky to have an amazing amount of entries and I have so enjoyed looking at them and reading the blogs.

We have been lucky enough to have been sponsored this challenge by the fabulous team over at Just Inklined. I had a really hard time choosing which image to work with but as I looked out of my window, my friends geese walked that decided my and it will be a nice card to give her this festive season.

I do hope that you will pop over to the Snowflakes Promise blog and take a look at the wonderful makes that have been created by the rest of the team.

I have to say that the weather here seems to be very calm at the moment...I just wonder what it's thinking of hitting us with next. There has been a lot of talk about possible snow..we shall have to wait and see. It's a bit cloudy today but that's about it..even the postman was surprised that it wasn't raining. He is a lovely man and is never matter what the weather.

I'm a bit I sit here typing..there is no sign of any little kitten..I dread to think what they may be doing. They are normally either running around like little maniacs or asleep on my legs. I have a horrible feeling that they be downstairs playing pinball with my bottles of Christmas juice. Today was my delivery before Christmas..the only other thing left to get is my fresh veg which my friend is going to get me next week. As far as everything else..if it's not in the house won't be coming. Packing the fridge was like a game of jenga..if you pull something out goodness knows if the rest will stay. At least the cats will be happy..all their food is here..and what a pile it is..what gets me is that no matter how much they have..they could always do with some The worst offender for playing I need more food is Nicademus..he will follow you round demanding..even though he just had his breakfast.

Well the coffee is calling and then I've still lots to do..some painting, finish some cards,and make some the caffeine is needed. It's going to be my favourite dinner with baby potatoes and salad...I shall be a happy doesn't take All the meat for Christmas is in the I'm a happy woman. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
