This is a very photo heavy post so you might want to grab a cuppa first. If you are only looking for my challenge card just scroll to the bottom.
Wow what a match it was... it might have looked like a straight forward win on paper but being there and seeing every point it certainly wasn't. The standard of play was unbelievable and the atmosphere in Centre Court was absolutely electric. Andy was a very worthy winner indeed.
I thought I would show you around and share our wonderful day out in SW19, the sun even came out in time for the start of play at 2pm....perfect English weather.
We started our day off in the All England Tennis Club with a cappuccino...cool eh! I love their stencil... I would love to own one!
My Hb and I like to get there when the grounds open at 10.30am to have a wander around and soak up the atmosphere. The grounds are so pretty and the flowers are always "Wimbledon" colours.
Obviously all the outside courts were empty as it was finals day but it was still fun to see them
We were sitting to the right of the Royal Box and we noticed that a certain couple had sneaked in at that same time.
When Andy won match point the court just erupted
Her delight was infectious, she was literally bouncing around the court with joy when they won.
and we celebrated too...
The dies are Spellbinder. The bottle die is an old sizzix and the bubble embossing folder is TH.
I gave it a retro feel with my Dymo labels.
I think the sentiment sums up our day..it was the 130th Wimbledon final and it really is an event which has "aged to perfection". Well done to our worthy tennis champions...we were so lucky to have been there to witness their wins.
2016 has been a very kind year to us too so far.
