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

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at a Snowflakes Promise. A new challenge has just begun...Anything goes with an option of Spring.

I was so lucky to be able to work with this wonderful image of the ducks in the grass. It just made me smile. I enjoyed working with this image. The other members have created some fabulous makes...I do hope that you will pop over and take a look. They are a constant source of inspiration.

Simon, one of the kittens was in disgrace this morning...and is likely to stay He has discovered that there is a top shelf to my unit and has decided that is there he wants to be. It wouldn't be a problem but he is not very good at jumping, so he has decided to claw his way up the curtain to get there. At the moment he is sat on my left elbow...which is really handy when you're trying to
I would have blogged earlier but it seems as if BT are up to their usual tricks. It couldn't get any slower if it tried. There was a feature in a newspaper about a certain village had the slowest broadband in the country..with a speed of 1.5....all I can say is that here in the mountains we could beat that...we have never been above fact it was quicker when we had the old dial up system. I do hope that it's not going to be like this all week as I've a lot of makes that I would love to share.
Well the coffee is calling and then I have to get all my organisation done for the next week. I'm currently working on makes for April and May.I need to keep a list so that I know where I With all the tablets I'm on, some days are better than others. I keep some colouring work for days when my legs are not working too well. Then at least I can feel productive on days when I can't move well. I count my blessings every day and know just how much crafting has saved my sanity...not that I had too much to begin  I'm off for my caffeine until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
