Get it?!! The leader of the Tour de France wears a yellow jersey....this is my yellow jersey cow!!!
ok....story behind this: my family eats, breathes, and will die for bicycling. When DH saw this stamp he said I needed to make a card referring to the Tour. Soooo!! This is what I came up with!! The premise was that this was a photo on the front of a newspaper with the caption underneath (done on the computer). I paper pieced the "yellow jersey" (note~when doing this technique, one might choose a LARGER area that is easier to cut out!!) Often, the bike sponsor of the leader's team will make a special "yellow" bike for the winner to ride on the streets of Paris. This is that special bike

I'm not a bike person so I'm glad you explained it but even if you had not I'd have liked it, I'm not even a barnyard person. City girl here!! But this stamp and your coments about it are just a hoot. Love it!! I'd have probably bought it too even with it being"related" to me.

I love clever cards, and this one takes the cake! My husband and friend love to bike and follow the Tour de France with great interest, so I got your 'yellow jersey' reference. I hear ya about the paper piecing. I tried to piece a little cupcake with three different pieces, and this wavy jersey doesn't look much easier. Thanks for making me smile!
