Le Tour de France... eh oui!

Bonjour mes amis! Comment allez-vous aujourd'hui?

Right, it's my turn this week to set the theme over at Cupcake Craft Challenges... and as the Tour de France cycle race takes place in July (and is VERY present in my house... hubby is a cycle dude... although more from the comfort of his armchair at the moment), I've decided to chose 'LE TOUR DE FRANCE' as my theme. Basically I'd like to see something french related on your project (blue/white/red colours, Eiffel Tower, Wine, Cycling etc)! And for those who are interested in cycle road racing... Team SKY are doing a great job in the Tour de France... we have two British riders, Bradley Wiggins & Chris Froome, at 1st and 2nd in the overall placement at the moment. Yeah!!! Shame about the hooligans that threw upholstery tacks onto the road in front of the cyclists in yesterday's stage... they created havoc by causing many riders to get punctures... one rider came off his bike and broke his collarbone because of their malice and stupidity!  Complete idiots!

Our sponsor this week at Cupcake is Sew Sweet, who is very kindly offering a £10 Gift Voucher to one lucky winner!

For my card I've decided to use this cute Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, she's called Michele (like me... but a lot more glamourous)... I just love these quirky little characters! If you like Michele you can find her HERE at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! She comes with the perfect sentiment... Bonjour mon ami!

Hope you can join in with us at Cupcake... I'm looking forward to visiting you all to see what fabby french creations you all come up with! Please take a minute to pop by the Cupcake blog, the DT girls have been very busy creating some petites délices to inspire you!
