Je t'adore.

Today's card celebrates my love of France, for giving me such a beautiful bike race to watch every summer. France - je t'adore. I adore you!

I cut this Hero Arts fleur-de-lis shape on my Silhouette - I just resized it a bit to make it longer & skinnier. Then I coated it up with tons of Martha Stewart Onyx glitter and added sequins and gems to make it fabulously blingie!

It's Freebie Friday, so I have another stamp set to giveaway! The Tour de France will reach Paris on Sunday, so how about some Parisian goodness! I have the Paris set from Hero Arts - just leave me a comment and it could be yours!

It just occurred to me that I completely failed to pick my winner from last Friday's post! Oops! So I'll post both winners on Monday.

I also made today's card in honor of Christophe Riblon, who won yesterday's Stage 18 of the Tour de France. It was an amazing day, with two separate ascents of a classic TDF climb, Alpe d'Huez. I loved his post-race interview, when they asked him what it is like to win, as a Frenchman, atop Alpe d'Huez in the 100th Tour de France. He said "eet ees... mageeekulll" in his wonderful French accent. Je t'adore!

See you tomorrow,

  1. your post gave me the giggles! I can hear the accent coming through loud and clear! :)

    this is a gorgeous card! and what a pretty stamp set, too. haven't seen that one before. after all of my years taking french classes, then my sons taking french classes, I am such a sucker for anything with a french flair. it's also my heritage, so that probably has something to do with it. ;)

    enjoy your weekend and stay cool!

  2. Just like you I love everything French too but your passion for it cracks me up. Your card is so beautifully crafted, stunning fleur de lis!!! Have a lovely weekend!!

  3. It's hard to decide which I like more....the fleur or all the onyx glitter ......or those sequins! Love love love !!!

  4. J'adore this card! Ack! love everything about it.

  5. Wonderful card Libby - the bling and glitter is fabulous :-)
    Your post made me smile when you 'wrote' the accent.
    Our N.Z. rider crashed face first onto barbed wire yesterday morning:-(. Thankfully there were no fractures, but I still flinch when I think of it.

  6. Great looking card! Love the Fleur de lis! And I love how you are using your Silhouette in a lot of your creations! Inspiring!

    And I love Hero Arts!
