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.

The Crafting Musketeers....Spring is in the Air.

Here I am back again. This card is a design team make for the wonderful Crafting Musketeers. A new challenge has just begun, sponsored this month by the great team over at Crafty Sentiments. The theme for this month is Spring is in the Air. For my card..the image came from Crafty Sentiments and features this lovely little bear. The sentiment is as well from Crafty Sentiments. The more I look at this little bear, the more I think that he would make a beautiful belated birthday card. I coloured him with my promarkers , cut him out and added to an oval cut out. I mounted this onto a card which I had covered with this pink backing paper and finally added some lace paper along the bottom and the side.

I'm sipping my coffee as I sit here..but as always the cup is never big enough. There is still noise coming from the landing and stairs but I'm trying my hardest to ignore the crashing and banging. I'm waiting for a design team parcel and as always it's like Christmas when it arrives and then I get into a panic just hoping that I can do it Hoping too that I can keep it safe from the My last parcel contained some ribbons to use in 3 different challenges during the year. I have only managed to use 1 set..the other 2 sets have got to be washed before they can be used..all thanks to Gannie who ran off with the whole bag and managed to spread them everywhere..there were many bad words said that Raven has now decided to sit on my left elbow which makes it rather hard to type. She is purring really she obviously loves sitting in such an awkward position.

Well I've got to the end of my I will be heading to the kettle I hope that you will consider entering the Crafting Musketeers Challenge. Ignore the rain and jump into Spring. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
