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......Crazy Hair

Todays card is a design team make for the fabulous Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and the theme is Crazy Hair and will run for the next week. The rest of the design team have created some fantastic makes and obviously have had a lot of fun in the process. With my card.. I coloured the image with my promarkers and then added coloured pearls to the eye of the peacock feathers. I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this image.
We have been so lucky to have been sponsored by the fabulous Stitchy Bears. As always they are a wonderful source of designs and inspiration. I do hope that you will pop over and take a look.

It is just so cold today..I've actually put my cardigan More than anything the trouble is the wind, plus the fact that my windows seals have given up . But all the cats are looking really cosy..they are all lying round the parlour, all curled up. The only ones not curled up are of course the kittens...they are racing around like the little nutters that they

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