HELLO AGAIN fellow Detainee’s
THE Magic here is the launch of the SPACEX DRAGON space craft which was built and launched from the US.. First time since the last launch of SPACE SHUTTLE ATLANTIS. BOB said it was definately a Dragon ride up to orbit… huffing and puffin little more bumpy than the space shuttle had been. They made the trip in 19 hrs and connected to the INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION for the first time in 9 yrs. Really exciting and I had hopped that I would see the launch from my lanai across the state ( but it is a very flat state) however the weather did not cooperate and while 9 yrs ago I was able to see the launch of Atlantis once it was air born and then see the contrail but not yesterday. Below are the photos that I took and the color is a little off due to fact that I am using my i phone 11 pro to take photos off the TV… which makes the color a bit wonky. If you go to your TV and type or say NASA you will see a complete set of photos and videos of the launch and the entering of the ISS…
this is the launch
the crew from left to right are BOB AND DOUG ….
this is the dragon that was on board the SPACE X DRAGON note the logo in the previous photo
Bob coming aboard the ISS
Bob and Doug and Doug is whipping at his head as he hit something coming aboard and apparently was bleeding a little.
the complete crew two Russians and 3 Americans now on board the ISS.
Incase you can’t tell space is another of my passions and I am trying to figure out how I can send them a weathergram or several WEATHERGRAMS to hang in the ISS…can’t hang them out side but maybe they could just let them go outside… and float around in space…till they dissolve… bet Lloyd would love that..ok moving on.
NOW FOR THE DEJA VU
The following photos are of cards I made this past week using the same format that Janie the Card Princess used to in my previous post of One SIMPLE FOLD.
FOR some reason I am into making small cards and I stumbled on some tiny pieces of stamp art and watercolor that I had done and they worked with this smaller size which is the size that DAWN uses for her thank you etc. It is basically ½ of standard size card which is normally 8 ½ x 5 ½ folded at 4 ¼ and then it can be either vertical or horizontal.
But the ½ size is 2 3/8 x 4 ¼… I have lots of cards that I have purchased in various colors so I just cut them in half and the proceeded with the double fold on one half of the card ie just like Janie showed with the standard size then a couple of them were actually the standard size…so here they are and have fun with any size you want to use..good way to use up scraps and you saw at the end of her video how tiny you can go…. so just get in there and PLAY…
again same easel and same size but this time the easel part is a full 4 ¼ tall and only adhered to the bottom of the fold… so it will lie flat to mail and stand up as an easel .I was motivated for this own by friends in WA telling me how lovely the weather was….
Ok this is Based on DAWN’s SIMPLY SWEET Z or what I call the double easel card and it was also smaller being only 3 x 4 ¼ ...
these last two are both standard size 5 ½ x 8 ½ folded at 4 ¼ then they are done in again what I am calling Double easel and DAWN calls her SIMPLY SWEET Z fold….ok now I have given you so ideas for making the cards a different size now it your turn to go and play…
AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY .…wire headed cyber toad ..aka kath
