Men and hobbies

Hei, marjanpoimija täällä, pari korttiakin syntynyt, nyt miehille! Golffarille ja kalastajalle.
Hi, still busy with those berries and garden stuff. But finished two cards for male.
First is LOTV's golfer stamp, coloured with Promarkers and papers are Lawn Fawn.
Another card for fisherman, stamp is Penny Johnsson ( or something...), coloured with Promakers too, papers are from Maja Design.
...
Viikonloppuna olimme Sonnirokissa, ja siellä ukkosmyrskyssä esiintyi mm. Arttu Wiskari, tätä korttia tehdessä lauleskelin "Kuningaslohta".
Maanantaina sain kortisonipistoksen olkapäähän ja olen nyt kärvistellyt allergisen reaktion kanssa, tässä ei paljon selfietä nyt oteta.
...
On Monday I got a cortisone injection to my shouder and got an allergic reaction too - to my face, so not any selfies now!

Dragonfly

Hei, eilen tuulisena, mutta lämpimänä päivänä terassille laskeutui upea sudenkorento lepäilemään.
Tulihan sitä kuvattua ja antoi ihan läheltä tarkastella pitkään. Siitäpä muistin, että minullahan on melko käyttämätön sudenkorento leimasin. Hetihän sitä piti lähteä etsimään - ja kortti syntyi samalla.
Hi, this beautiful dragonfly rested a while on our terrace. I took some pictures and admired it's beauty. Then remembered I have a dragonfly stamp, not many time used. So I found it and made a card immediately.
Stamps: Penny Black
gold and transparent embossing powders
