I was so honored to be a guest on Libby’s blog on Tuesday last week. Every year Libby invites a bunch of designers to her blog to celebrate the Tour de France with some themed crafting. The Tour de France was riding for a big part through Belgium that day – too bad I’m on the other side of the country. So that just had to be my day for a little bicycle love.
We’re not the kind of people that can’t leave our house when there’s a cycling race on the TV. But whenever we have the opportunity we will watch. The Tour de France is special however. There’s a big piece of nostalgia attached to it for me. And summer has never really started without the Tour de France taking off. It is a big deal.
A week or two ago a new bike shop opened next door to us, the perfect occasion to make a fun bicycle card for my new neighbors. I just loved that sticker from Crate Paper’s Poolside stickersheet. Items like that make it very easy to make a beautiful card with minimal efforts.
Thank you very much, Libby, for inviting me to your blog for this year’s Tour de Craft! The Tour de Craft is still in full swing, so be sure to hop over and follow along. Enjoy the rest of the Tour!Els.
