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

Here I am These cards are design team makes for the fantastic team over at Gruffies and Guests. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the next month. The theme for this challenge is Summer..but of course you have the option of going Anything Goes. The only rule is that the card must feature either a Gruffie, a Happy Hopper or a House Mouse. All are created by the ever talented Ellen Jareckieand I just adore them, as I know many of you do too. This challenge has been sponsored by my fellow Gruffie Vicky and she will supply a lovely prize..all details of this are on the Gruffies and Guests Challenge blog.

Both of my cards are from the Gruffies and Happy Hoppers cdrom which has been created by Joanna Sheen. I have to admit to having a bit of a passion for the Happy makes me smile as much as a happy rabbit.

Well the coffee is calling..I decided to blog these cards whilst the kettle was boiling. So now I'm off for my caffeine hit and then I'll be back. I hope that you will pop over to the Gruffies blog and take a look at all the fabulous makes. And if you love the House Mouse images as much as I do..why not join in the fun and enter the challenge. So until after my caffeine hit..take care and happy crafting.
