I used some of my favorite Hero Arts bicycle stamps, and a really cool sentiment stamp I picked up sometime back from Hampton Art. I chose the black and red color scheme for a couple reasons - first and foremost, because they are Cadel's team colors. But also because I'm playing along with this week's color splash at The Play Date Cafe - I made a black & white card with a SPLASH of red!
Have any of you read my blog long enough to remember WHY this Australian is my favorite cyclist these days? Well back in 2009 during the tour, I did this post inspired by him and shared it on Twitter. In reply, he sent me this tweet.
For me, that was one of the best days ever! I COULD NOT BELIEVE he said that, such a thrill for a cycling dork like me. So today, I'm so freakin' happy that he has achieved his dream, and cannot wait to see him on the podium in Paris tomorrow. YELL FOR CADEL!!
