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

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge is just about to begin and will run for the next week. The challenge for this week is Winter Wonderland.

We are lucky this week to have been sponsored by the fabulous team over at Limited Runs . I chose to work with this image called chilly owl. I thought that it was perfect for the theme. When it's snowing may look wonderful but it's definitely chilly...and as I always say it's the perfect time to stay in and This wonderful little owl, I coloured with my promarkers. I do hope that you will pop over to the Limited Runs page and take a look at all the other wonderful digis that are available.

As I sit here today, I can look out of the window and see the white topped mountains. Peaceful you may think but as always the cats are ensuring that it isn't quiet. Milky and Obie are having a tiff and have been having it for the past couple of I don't know what has caused the wind to be up their tails but goodness me they can cause some mayhem. All the other cats are staying out of their The kittens are all in the basket with Reg. Last night I gave them a catnip mouse and I haven't stopped laughing at their antics. This little leopard print mouse has gone from mouth to mouth and has been up and downstairs a number of times. We have had some serious rolling in As I write it keeps trying to snow..everytime a new fall happens, the cats that are outside all run in and try to tell me that it's all my fault. Well of course it I hope that the weather is being kind to you wherever you are.

Flossie is due to go to her new home in about 2 weeks. She was going before but we wanted to arrange that she would be doctored before she went and the vet has said that he only doctors cats on a Wednesday and was booked up next week. So now she is booked in and Fiesty..the black and white kitten hasa new home as well. Then that leaves only the tabby terrorists to home.

Well the coffee is calling and then I will be back later with another design team make. So until then..take care and happy crafting.
