Ugh, muggy weather
So it was time to finish off a few challenges, this one (see pic) has been waiting to be stuck down since beginning of June. The theme was green and purple, well that only means one thing to me - Wimbledon! I went through my old photos and found some I'd taken when I was there in 1981, which shows how the place has changed over the years. Again the Slice came in to play for the lettering - Zo thank you for your comments, I'd like a cricut but can only afford the Slice, but it is a very versatile machine and I wouldn't be without it. Lettering used to be the bane of my life, especially with scrapbooking, the Slice is far cheaper than buying endless alphabets for the manual die cutters.
Also watched the Women's open, sadly it was poorly attended, shame, also a shame that the BBC didn't devote more time to it, in fact it would be nice if they did devote more time to women's sport in general. Of course when Wimbledon is on the usual moaners go on about the women only playing 3 sets, well that was not their choice, it was decided for them many years ago, some man thought that women couldn't possibly play 5 sets of tennis! I think playing 5 sets at the majors would improve the women's game. And the men can be just as boring.
Hope you are managing to stay cool where you are, thanks for stopping by.
