A maxicard and more stamps from EJ

 Card no 353 - EJ

This card is a maxi-card – i.e. it has a stamp on the front which reflects the same subject as the card itself.  In this case the stamp is a picture of the same item – a British stamp from the 1983 engineering series.   It is also a First Day of Issue card.

EJ puts lots of used stamps on his cards, effectively using them as stickers.  It’s a great idea.

First of all there was this Tanzanian stamp  Trioceros jacksonii (Jackson's Chameleon or the Three-horned Chameleon).  Two more from the same series of cards were on a previous card.

There was more wildlife on these stamps from Surinamm Korea, Dutch Antilles, South Africa and Kenya.

My favourite was the above cinnamon-chested bee-eater (Merops oreobates) from Kenya.
The stamps that actually got the card to me from EJ were these Christmas ones from 2011.
