Ey Up!!!!.....Le Tour De France in Yorkshire????

Hi There
Its Le Tour De France crazy where I live in Yorkshire at the moment...Yes it passing through where I live this weekend and everyone has gone Tour De France crazy!!
You would think it was Christmas or forcast heavy snow!! The supermarket shelves are empty. No Milk, Bread or even potatoes....Its bizarre!!

So inspired by all the craziness surrounding me, I thought I may as well join in..Though Tilda isnt in the Tour De France...she's on the look out for David Beckham and Brad Pit who are very near by and were spotted in 'Betty's' ( A famous TeaRoom) in Ikley yesterday...4 miles from my house!!!!! whoooaaaah!!!
Even Prince William and Kate passed through my village yesterday!!! :D

On the route there's banners and flags flying everywhere..
Here are some pics of the welcome they are going to get.

This church that's replaced god with a yellow jersey.
This is painted on one of the local rds and the huge! shirt is hung on Skipton Church Clock.

This is actually down the rd from my home. hee hee


Even on the canalside they are joining in.

and the Farmers

Photo: Things have gone mad behind the scenes at Daleside Nurseries!
and this is my favourite....just brilliant
Anyway back to my card ...I painted with Distress ReInkers
Dies used are DooHickeys Slender Tress, Gate, Rose Leaf and Flag Banner.
Flowers I made with Marianne rolled Roses Die
Papers are Maja Coffee in the Harbour

I will pop back in next week with some more photos of when they cycle through...I will give you a wave on TV!!! ;D
Until then I wish you an amazing weekend
