Transport by train

Hei, tervetuloa Craft-Room haasteen pariin!
Aiheena kuljetus, autoja, polkupyöriä, veneitä...vaikka kuumailmapalloja, jotain millä pääsee eteenpäin. Minua innoitti Allegro juna Pietariin, tosin vintage muodossa... teksti on venäjänkielisestä kirjasta. Mies kävi viime viikolla Pietarissa työmatkalla, joten tämä aihe oli itselle ajankohtainen.
-Hi! Welcome, at Craft-Room Challenge "Transport" with Crafty Individuals as sponsor.
 Our lovely DT Suzanne has to step down from the team, but this was her theme and we didn't want to change it.
Show us some ships, cards, vehicles.. or hot balloons!
I was inspired of the train trip from Helsinki-Lahti- St.Petersburg - and made a vintage style card.

Stampin' for the Week-End 
 My old russian dolls,  "maatuskat". I have used to take these on table at Easter with lots of decorative and chocolate eggs. My parents visited Russian very often and brought these wooden things and of course the crystals (pots and glasses).
My hubby was in St.Petersburg last week, travelled with the fast Allegro train, it took only 2,5 hours from Lahti to St. P. It's very popular way to go there just for a day! But there's so much to look at, fourth biggest city in the Europe with great  history and art. I visited there when it was still Leningrad in 80's! I'd like very much to visit there again, just because of the art;-))m
