This is a very photo heavy post so if you have come to see my Moment, just scroll to the bottom. Otherwise grab a cuppa and join me on my day out.
The weather was really perfect, scorching hot but our seats on No 1 court were under the canopy in the shade. Oh what bliss. We arrived at 10.20am and our first stop is always for a cappuccino...complete with Wimbledon logo in sprinkled chocolate.
We checked the order of play
and went to our seats after lunch
which of course included a glass of Pimm's
We donated our seats later on as they are resold for charity and it gave a chance for someone to see a late evening men's match.
Each time we have visited Wimbledon my Hb has bought me a dated Links of London charm so when I saw this advert outside the Court No 1 shop I knew where I wanted to head.
On the way back our bus was none other than an old route master....I can remember these buses as a child.
I also added the sun rays using my Tim Holtz stencil and used my great Rubber Dance sun stamp. I also added some Little Claire's flower stamps using plum Archival ink
I also added some dots and "balls" using texture paste and more stencils
I stamped and coloured my new T. Holtz flowers...I finally succumbed, these have been on my wish list for months.
And after a few hours play this is my finished Moment
Scrap Across the World July They have an awesome mood board.
I was inspired by the butterfly and flowers. I also thought that we have walked many steps that day and the players even more. I also loved the sunset and created a sun and rays in my own Moment .
My Moment measures 9" X 8"
I also loved the rich vivid colours.
Our creative corner mexico moods such a great photo which I have incorporated into my Moment with my circles and bright vivid colours.

Thanks for getting to the end of my post. I did promise on Monday that I would share some of my Wimbledon photos with you. It is always such a great English day out.
The weather this week has been steaming and I must admit on Wednesday it really was too hot.....39c in my garden is not fun! It has been much more pleasant today with a cooling breeze. We hope it lasts until tomorrow as we are off to Daisy's nursery BBQ.
I am very excited that Tracy over at Noor UK has invited me to Guest Design for her for the month of July and I will be here on Monday with my first piece...to give a sneaky clue....it goes with Wimbledon very well ;0) I'm off now to watch some more tennis on TV.
Have a lovely weekend,
Bye for now,
