Le chat français

At long last, today the Tour de France both started and ended in France! Yay! This is a day to celebrate...

And how better to celebrate than with a French kitty?? :) I don't even know who made this stamp, I bought it used because it was a cat in a beret and I absolutely cannot resist such things! (If you know who made it, let me know - I think perhaps Stampendous?). I combined it with a completely ancient stamp set from Hero Arts called C'est Chouette. You know I cannot ever let go of a stamp set described as "all things French"! I used the fleur-de-lis from this set, and also used it as inspiration for the sentiment, which I ended up spelling out with my Hero Arts Printer's Type alphabet.

I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch for this card, although in the end I strayed a little, oops.

Making this card, I couldn't help but keep saying to myself "le mew, le meow, le purrrrr"... anyone know what that is? It's Penelope cat, of course. I think Pepe Le Pew was my first "French" experience growing up - it set me on the course of loving all things French. HA!

And let me just mention yesterday's Stage 4 at the Tour. Because it was AwEsOmE!! After a rotten day of horrible crashing the stage before, it was so nice to have this stage end on such an incredibly happy note, with Tony Martin from Team Etixx-Quickstep finally - FINALLY - wearing yellow for the first time in his career. And in such dramatic fashion, too! The route took them over cobblestones - fyi, not an easy thing to ride a road bike over. Tony ended up having a mechanical, which can quickly take you out of contention in a race - but he quickly traded bikes with his teammate (who rides a different sized bike!) and ended up pulling away from everyone and winning the stage. Just look at this smile!

Tomorrow I'm back with another mega-talented guest designer, see you then!


  1. Love this card! The cat is adorable and your choices coordinate perfectly!

  2. Okay, this is seriously awesome, Libby! Love that kitty and that washi is just fantastic! Mark got me a Pepe and Penelope t-shirt when we were dating because I am such a fan...just a pinch less than my love for Hello Kitty! :) Thanks for playing along with Mojo Monday!

  3. Oh what a stunning card Libby - love it!!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
