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

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at A Snowflakes Promise. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the following fortnight. The theme is Anything Goes but as always, Christmas forms a great part.It is so good to see all the wonderful Christmas Cards, as well as all the other fabulous makes. I have to say between Simon wanting to sit on my elbow and getting use to typing wearing my brace on my hand..definitely slows things

We are so lucky this challenge to have been sponsored by the hugely talented Rick St. Dennis. I have been a fan of his work for quite a while..and it took me ages to decided what image to work with. 

I finally decided to work with this great image of the lady and her cats. It made me smile because it brought to matter what you are wearing you have to deal with the cats before you go out. No matter how posh you've dressed..they really don't care..they want to protest that you're leaving and will create any amount of chaos to stop you. I have coloured the image with my promarkers and loved every minute of doing it.

The rain has finally arrived and all the cats have returned home..apart from Pinky..and are determined to blame me for the wetness outside. Gannie hasn't stopped complaining about it and has to keep going to the window to check that it is still raining. In just the few days that we had the hot weather it was enough to make me forget just how much trouble the cats can cause.... chaos reigns once

Well the coffee is calling  and after a top up of the caffeine, I shall be back with another
 design teammake. So until later...take care and happy crafting.
