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 is just about to begin and will run for the next week. The theme for this challenge is Anything not square or rectangle. As always you have the option of going with a LOC make. All details for this option are on the LOC blog.

We are so lucky to have been sponsored by the great team over at Aliciabel. There is such a great collection of images over there...they are well worth a look. I chose to work with this beautiful image of the curious fairy. I created the leaf and flower background using my H2Os. I coloured my image with my promarkers.

I hope that you will pop over to the LOC blog and join in with the fun. The other ladies are as always a wonderful source of inspiration.

Well the coffee is calling  and I have to say that trying to blog today has been a nightmare with BT playing at their normal games. The internet has been off and on flashing like a disco so it's a case of do it while you can. So I Until next time..take care and happy crafting.
