Love me some Argyle!

Today's post is ridiculously late, I apologize. Perhaps I should have taken that Tour de Craft rest day afterall! There's been too much fun going on outside of the blog. My brother is in town for a visit - yesterday the rain cleared for a bit so we finally celebrated the 4th of July in Atlanta, and today we took my brother to some Atlanta sites. But, I couldn't let today end without a blog post, especially after my favorite team kicked some cycling butt yesterday in the mountains!! Today I have an Argylerific card, in honor of the awesome effort of Team Garmin-Sharp in the Pyrenees!

I've had this cool bike stamp in my collection for quite a while, and this is the first time I've actually inked it up - oh the humanity! It's from Stampington & it's called, you guessed it, "Cyclist". I thought the "life is good" sentiment was fitting, because when the boys in argyle are attacking and winning stages, life IS good! I attempted to color the cyclist in Garmin-esque colors, although the image isn't quite right - there's no way they'd be wearing longsleeve kits while climbing mountains on a hot day in the Pyrenees! If you look closely, you'll also notice a little argyle on the card - I have an argyle-print embossing folder I used in the background. I tried my best to match my paper to Garmin blue, and this is the closest I had. Yes, it pained me that it wasn't 100% perfect. But it is pretty close.

Check out this photo of Dan Martin, winner of Stage 9, from the Team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda Facebook page. Doesn't he look like my card?? :-)

I also have the winner from Friday's giveaway - congratulations to Lysa, who said: "Great pages! I just some PL page inserts myself... planning on mixing them in with my "regular" scrapbook pages. :) Thanks for the chance to win some Hero Arts goodies!" Lysa, please send me an email to and I'll get these sets out to you!

  1. Love the movement in the image and the background which reflects the team colours, and the argyle :-).
