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

Today's cards are design team makes for the wonderful team over at Left of Center Creative Challenges. A new challenge is just about to begin and will run for the coming week. The theme for this challenge is Quirky or that just about sums up most things that I As always you have the choice of going LOC. For all details about that, please check out the LOC blog.

For this weeks challenge we have been lucky enough to have been sponsored by the fantastic Bloobel Stamps. I just adore the images and found it so hard to decide on which image to in the end I worked with The one above is so understandable for a caffeine head like me and the one below I just loved the details..especially the plant eating her Both images I coloured with my promarkers.

It's been a hectic day here in the mountains.Things have been going in and out of the skip all day. I had the tree trimmed had gone so out of control that it covered the whole patio the patio is clear and nearly ready for the umbrella to go up. It's guaranteed that it will rain for the rest of year as soon as it goes The new cottage sign and the village notice board are also going up in the front garden. I have a new sideboard for the parlour...lots to go out..lots to go upstairs and lots to do down and out to the skip..the whole thought is very exciting. A new armchair is coming in for the parlour as well. I won't know myself by the time it's all finished. Hopefully by the next weekend my bedroom will be done as well. Fingers crossed. The cats are still not walking on the new carpet..they all still come in through the window and go round the edge of the room on the furniture and then jump out of the door onto the landing I know I warned them that if they made a mess I'd make them wear slippers..but I never thought that they'd take me With all the going on today, they've been back and to all the time. They do like to keep an eye on things.

Well the coffee is calling and then I've got some painting to finish. It seems really strange to be blogging at this time of day but I'm a good girl..well sometimes..and do what I'm asked. I do hope that you will pop over to the LOC blog and take a look at all the fabulous makes that the rest of the team have made. I'm heading for the until next time..take care and happy crafting.
