White Christmas Greetings from Finland

Hello Everyone and Happy Friday!
It's Sandy here posting DT Member Karita's "Winter Wonderland" card.

As you probably know by now, Karita's favourite colour is white; whenever I send the DT members new products, Karita always gets the white laces & ribbons, the white flowers, and the papers with least amount of colour on them. And if the products aren't white enough for her taste, she usually paints them white with Gesso or the Tim Holtz "Picket Fence" Crackle Paint. :-)

So with this in mind, I think we ought to take a look at Karita's card?!
As you can see, "Winter Wonderland" is the perfect theme for Karita!

You might have noticed in the last couple of days that we are now using the Inlinkz Product Manager.

You will find all products used in the card/project at the bottom of the post. We think this makes it easier for you; if you see something you like, you just click the thumbnail image and you'll be taken directly to that product page at the LLC Store.

The papers are from Pion Design's Silent Night collection, which currently is 20% off.

Speaking of Pion Design, I hope you haven't missed the announcement that a new collection,
"Alma’s Sewing Room", will be released shortly.

Myself and the DT are very excited about this new beautiful collection and I'll be placing an order as soon as it becomes available. Here's a little preview - please visit Pion Design's Blog to see even more sheets from the collection!

...and how well aren't these Wooden Mini Sewing Spools from Maya Road going to go with this new collection?!!! They are available in packs of 5 or 10.
Karita has painted the Spools white (well I told you so, didn't I?! :-) with Crackle Paint and used them to hold her sentiment in place. It reads "Joulutervehdys", which is Finnish for "Christmas Greetings", my friend Google tells me...

Here's a close up of the decorations and the image, coloured with Distress Reinkers.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great creative weekend!

Hugs from
Karita & Sandy
