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.

Gruffies and Guests.....New Challenge

Today's cards are design team makes for the fabulous team over at Gruffies and Guests. A new challenge has just begun and has the theme of Add a Number. This challenge will run for the next month and is a house mouse/gruffie/happy hopper challenge. Please read the rules before you enter your card as we have lots of people that enter but don't use a house mouse image and therefore are not eligible for the prize. And it is such a shame because I have seen some really beautiful cards that can't be accepted.

The challenge this month has been sponsored by fellow Gruffie Shaz and wow oh wow, just look at the prize to be won below. I feel quite jealous that I can't enter myself.

If you get the chance why not join us all on Facebook as well. It is great to see so many different makes and to share our love of all things House Mouse.

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle has just arrived to make it..bless him. I shall be back later with another design team make. The weather here is still lovely and the house is so quiet with all the little furry beasts I can see them out of the window..all sunning themselves on the studio roof. So until later...take care and happy crafting.
