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 design team makes for the wonderful team over at A Snowflakes Promise. I should have blogged yesterday but BT wouldn't let me.The internet connection was flashing on and off more than a set of disco I finally gave up. But anyway..onwards and A new challenge has just begun and as always has a winter theme.This will be our last challenge of 2016..challenges will begin again on the 10th January. I have so loved seeing all the fabulous creations entered into our challenges..there has been so much fabulous work.

Our sponsors for this challenge is the fabulous team over at Limited Runs. I chose to work with this oh so cute juggling snowman. I decided to make two cards..the only difference being the colours that I've used. Depending what your own choice of Christmas colours are, this is a perfect image to use them.

So the tree is still up and I can't quite believe it but the cats have left it alone for the first time in my Christmas history. They sit by it and look at it but there has been no climbing or pulling off of decorations. Because it's all white, I'm sure that they are all just waiting for that photo They're all in and out like yo-yos at the moment..the sky is blue and there's no they're all making the most of it. In between the comings and goings, they've already caused all my pencils to end up on the floor, a stack of paper to slide and several ink pads to go on a trip off the table..such is the life of a crafter who has cat

Well the coffee is calling and then I have to finish a set of cards. The person who the cards are for is coming to check them out before I add the final touches. I have to admit I shall be glad when they're all finished..they will be the last for other people..then I can add the finishing touches to my own. I treated myself to some Christmas's red and white with reindeer on it and looks really cosy..I will be putting it on the bed next week, once I've washed my's a large fur one and is really it means that the cats can lie on it without lying on my new reindeer set. After all I would like it to be my special Christmas thing. So, with that in thought and work still waiting.. until next time..take care and happy crafting.
