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 at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the following week. I have to say as I am sat here typing it is to the sound of crashing...the kittens are on a mad dash round the I will have to sort the chaos out after I've finished blogging. Now you can see how some of my days go on. The theme for this challenge is Bling, or  as normal you have the choice of going LOC. For all details of that, please read the rules on the challenge blog.
We are lucky enough to have sponsored for this challenge by the wonderful team over at SLS Lines.
Please do pop over to their shop and take a look at the wonderful designs that are available. It will come as no surprise to you that I just had to work with this cat. I have loved working with many of their designs...more than a few of their cats and they are all decorating my stairs wall.

The crashing sounds are not coming from my I have a bit of a thing for filling bare walls with pictures and the kittens seem to fascinated with a particular picture of a butterfly..everytime I go in, I find it swinging from being played

For my card today, I coloured my image with my promarkers and then I blinged him up.If you look, he has jewels on his tail and in his ear and of course..on his collar. He has the same expression on his face that my cats would have if I decided to bling them. Mind you I have to say that there are many times when they seem to have been glittered. I sometimes look at them and they have an amazing twinkle due to me trying to contain the sparkly

Well the coffee is calling and to go with it today I have a little piece of coffee cake...more caffeine than normal. Hopefully it will give me enough energy to move the furniture round. I never managed to get it done yesterday..with the amount of pain I had and all the visitors, my hopes of getting things sorted. But today will be the day..hopefully. I'm hoping to do some sewing this weekend but need to move round again first. I will be back later with another design team make. So until then...take care and happy crafting.
