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 cards are all design team makes for the wonderful group of A Snowflakes Promise. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next fortnight. The theme for this challenge is summer but as always you have the option of going for a Christmas make. As you can see from a couple of my makes..using the moose and the deer..they called out Christmas for me. I had so much fun creating with these wonderful images that I just couldn't you will

The sponsor for this challenge and the creator of these fabulous characters is Melonheadz. I do hope that you will pop over and take a look at the hundreds of characters that are available. I think that I may have bought the set just so that I could use the cute deer and moose. They just make me smile. If you pop over to the Snowflakes Promise blog you will see some other characters used by the rest of the team.

The weather here in the mountains today is undecided to say the least. It's quite dark here but it's not raining at the moment. I will no doubt be left with many wet paw prints running over me if it begins. All the cats are outside with only Nicademus asleep in a box that is really too small for him and Rave who is sat on my legs. The kittens who now really are young boys..teenagers nearly with their in and out, making sure that nothings going on that they should know about. With the three of's not just Nosey who lives up to his They act rather like a little pack of dogs...running to the door if someone arrives. If it is the evening and they hear someone at the door, they all stand at the top of the stairs until they know who it is.

Well the coffee is calling and then I have some cards to make. I'm quite looking forward to a bit of gentle card making. The flooring in the kitchen is due to go down on I expect that the house will be in an almighty mess until it's all finished.I will let you know how it all goes. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
