Tour de Craft Guest Designer - Lisa Spangler!

My final Tour de Craft Guest Designer is my #1 cycling friend, Lisa Spangler! There are many reasons why I adore my Lisa, but we initially bonded over stamps and BIKES! We have a pact, that SOMEDAY we WILL be at the Tour de France together, cheering as they make their way up the classic mountain stages! So of course I have Lisa sharing a card today, during Stage 18 of the Tour de France, this year's final mountain stage through the Pyrenees.

Today's stage includes some classic mountain climbs, including the Col du Tourmalet, one of my personal favorites. I love love LOVE how Lisa incorporated the stage details into her card design. Awesome!!

Lisa watercolored one of my favorite Bicycle stamps from Hero Arts. What a cool look!! And she used the Bubble Confetti stencil to add the fun dots.

And... of course the photographs today are amazing. Because Lisa is amazing. I mean - sunflowers for the first photo!! That's so le Tour. Sigh. I wish we still lived near each other, I'd bring all my cards to her to photograph! LOL! (I know I could easily bribe her to do it for me - I'd just need to bring a donut or a cupcake!) ;-)

Thank you SO MUCH, mon ami, for joining me today. As always, I *adore* your card!! And I miss you soooo much!

Be sure to visit Lisa at Sideoats and Scribbles - you'll be inspired by each and every post!

Vive le Tour!
