Stars And Stripes

Good morning, well here we are well into the second week of July, hope all the girls in the USA had a fabulous 4th July!! I bet there were lots of fire works and party's going on over the week-end!... We had our own celebrations here in Yorkshire this week-end, what a fabulous turn out it was for the Tour De France!! It brought back so many memories for me and my hubby as David and Steven used to do all the cycle race's in South Africa, they were both very big into cycling!!  My South African followers would know the well known 'Die Burger' cycle run, 'The Argus -PicknPay Rotary cycle tour, 'False Bay Round Table' Cape Point cycle tour just to name a few!! these were all back in the late eighty's and ninety's... It's a fabulous feeling of pride to be part of such an amazing event, and Yorkshire really did the tour proud... 'Well Done Yorkshire'!! We mustn't forget to mention Lewis Hamilton too, what a fabulous win for this great racing driver!!!

Having said all that I had better get on to my card for today which is for this weeks 'Papertake Weekly' Challenge.  The theme for this week is 'Stars and Stripes'...
