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

Here I am again with my design team makes for the wonderful team over at A Snowflakes Promise Challenge Blog.My first card features this fabulous snail from the first of our sponsors..Cre8tive Hands. I had so much fun with this snail...I patterned her and even added glossy accents to her shell. As far as I can imagine she has her spring time colours on and is ready to be awesome.

My other card for this challenge features this image from our other sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. I thought that this image would make a fabulous Easter card but as it's now after Easter..I made a step away from the chocolate That's one thing I needed to do this year. I was lucky to be given lots of chocolate but had to firmly ration myself to a little every day.

I hope that you will pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at all the other creations made by the rest of the team. The new challenge will run for the next fortnight and has a Anything Goes theme.

My hope for a peaceful time just hasn't come to pass. Chaos has reigned in the cottage,thanks to the Raven is trying to rule me at the moment. She is demanding to sit between me and the computer. She nearly made me choke on my coffee by knocking the bottom of my cup whilst I was trying to take a No peace for me then.

Well I'm hoping that Sparkle will put the kettle on and then I can continue with my water colouring. I have a number of projects to do but at the moment my mojo has headed off I'm hoping that a little more coffee will help. So until tomorrow...when hopefully my mojo has returned...take care and happy crafting
