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 creations are both design team makes for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge is just about to begin and for this week has the theme of Tall Card Base. I decided to make 2 wall featuring a cat..what a the other featuring these wonderful flowers.

Both of my makes were coloured with my promarkers and the flower one was embellished with glitter. You could say that I have covered all my favourite things..cats, flowers, glitter and the colour orange..and I loved every minute of  creating them.

The challenge for this week is sponsored by the fabulous team over at Bugaboo Stamps. I do hope that you will pop over and take a look at all the wonderful images that are available there.

The sun is shining here in the mountains today. Most of the cats have gone it is quite peaceful here despite the Jeffrey has decided to have a sleep in the window and Gannie has joined him. At least they are quiet. Yesterday I saw the funniest thing ever..Simon was in the bathroom with me and he was stood in the bath. He spotted a spider..well he began by growling at was the first time I had heard him growl..and then blow me he ate it. I thought I will now be calling him Simon the Brave and shall have to rent him out to friends who don't like He was so pleased with himself that now he is keeping check on the bath and lord bless him for doing it. I have thought that everyone has their own special talent and now I know what Simon's

Well the coffee is calling and I shall be back later with another design team make. I'm going to try and have the window open...but it all depends on the kittens. I can't believe just how quickly this week has gone...some weeks just go in the blink of an eye and others can feel like a year. I think it's just depends what space your head is in.Mine is shouting need until later..take care and happy crafting.
