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

Todays card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next week. The theme for this weeks challenge is Cute and Dark. You , as always have the option of going LOC should you wish. For all details of that, please check out the details on the LOC blog. 

We are so lucky this week to have been sponsored by the uber talented Nicki Burnette. I just adore her images and found it really hard to decide which one to work with. I finally decided on the one that I've worked with because besides being such a cute witch..she has a cat I'm sure that some of mine would love the bat wings. Simon He doesn't do well at jumping so wings would be a great bonus for him. I coloured the image with my promarkers.

I do hope that you will pop over to the blog and take a look at all the fabulous creations made by the rest of the team. I adore all the images and if I had the time, I would have worked with more than one. But seeing what I've been doing this week..I just couldn't find the time. As most of you know I have been clearing and sorting my craft stash. All I can say is that I'm not doing it again in a hurry. I think as I tidied my crafting mojo also got tidied away. Late yesterday, I sat down to craft and felt really blocked. I'm so used to having everything I need on a daily basis by my side..all of a sudden it was packed drove me I had embellishments all over the place in lots of different boxes and always knew where they were. Then I tidied and put all the embellishments into a few large boxes....and suddenly I couldn't find a thing. Even my backing card was so organised it drove me crazy. I think that maybe I'm destined to be a messy crafter and that if people want my stuff, they're going to have to put up with a bit of disorder. Even the cats don't know what to do with

I'm excited that tonight there is Athletics on the tv. They are only on the red button but I have a pile of crafting to do whilst I'm watching. So if you're into the athletics..don't miss them.Friday night used to be a night when I was definitely going to be things change over I'm planning my evening around If nothing else it costs a lot less.

Well the coffee is calling and I shall have to put my legs up a bit higher. I went flying today and have managed to twist my knee...and of course, it's my 'good' leg. But I'm sure with a little rest, a coffee and a tablet..I'll be fine. I'll be back later with another design team make, so until then..take care and happy crafting.
