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 A Snowflakes Promise Challenge. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next fortnight. The theme is A Little Spring or of course you can enter an Anything goes card, especially Christmas. We have had some amazing entries and it is always a joy to see them all.

We are so lucky for this challenge to have been sponsored by the great team over at Limited Runs. I chose to work with this image..I just loved all the detail. I coloured it with my promarkers and thought that it would make a great new home card. I hope that you will pop over to both the Snowflakes Promise blog and to the Limited Runs shop. Both places are a great source of inspiration.

It will be a very short blog I'm going to have a quiet afternoon. I'm so sorry to haveto tell you that my little dog Reg passed in his sleep yesterday. He was an elderly dog andof course we know that it's going to happen but it makes no difference when it happens.Reg was adored by so many people but also by all the cats. They went for walks with him and lay with him either on the floor or in his basket. The kittens are finding it all very strange and have been looking for him.

So just for today I'm ending the blog early and am just leaving you with a picture of Reg sat in one of his favourite places by turnaround tree. Take care everyone xxx
