An inauspicious start! Card of the Day – Day 5

Hi folks,

I started this post about an hour ago and while trying to upload a couple of photos I took today, I’ll get to that, the internet decided to go down, great just when you are in the middle of writing a post and you want it done….. and it will be another hour before its done.

Anyway, I was going to continue sharing the cards I shared  with the Michael Strong Stamps group a couple of weeks ago but first I wanted to show you our “delightful” smog.  You have no doubt heard about all the bushfires in Australia these past months.  I haven’t seen anything like it since we stopped using coal for heating in winter.  Although, I think Sydney had and still has the worst of it, we have until now been lucky in our part of the country, not had too many in our region but over the last week or so they have been increasing, I am hopeful we will be safe.

The two photos I am sharing, one was taken 7:23am this morning and the second at 5:35pm.  Unfortunately the morning one is through a window with a fly-screen but doesn’t affect the colour or lack there of.  Not a lot of difference but this afternoon’s was redder than this morning, yet the photos on my phone show orangey in colour of the afternoon photo but comes up pinkish here(?) but then again it could my poor computer.  The graphics are getting tired:)

With that out of the way, I can now share the card for Day 5 of Michael Strong Stamps group’s week of cards.  This one is using patterned paper with Michael’s dragonfly stamp:

I know some of my work is a bit quirky but that makes it fun.

Today’s card is quite easy to make especially if your patterned paper is as good as this, you just need a couple of dragonflies and you’re done.

I have to admit this is one of my favourites.

COD Day 5 – Dec.2019

 

 

 

 

 

Usually a week of cards is really only 5 days but this time I did an extra day and shared 3, one I have already shown you, in an earlier post and I called it Card 6.3.  I will share the other two next time, hopefully tomorrow.  In the meantime, stay safe everyone and thanks for reading.
