Well, I sat and watched it from beginning to end, on the edge of my seat most of the time ... and wasn't it a dramatic tennis final ... one of the most exciting I've ever watched, and at my age, I've watched a few!!!
Disappointing that Andy didn't pull it off ... and I did feel for him ... but there is always next year.
I made this card for the Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge - 28 over at Di's and intended posting it earlier today but, well, see above - I played hooky ... hangs head in shame :( You could say, tennis stopped play :))
When I was printing out the Mo Manning image, Cat's in the Christmas Tree for another card - see previous post - I came across this one of rowan berries, somehow neglected and forgotten. I can't think why because I love rowan trees (mountain ash) and like to have one growing in my garden to ward of witches ... an old Scot's superstition!!!
But then, I have a lot of things that are neglected and forgotten in my stash, be it on my PC, like many a digital stamp, or in the (too) many boxes and drawers in the craft space, like the paper lace I've used to embellish this card. How often do we buy something, use it once, move on to the next project and promptly forget it ... I know I do this a lot and it's a shame.

Now that the excitement of the the tennis is all over, normal service (pun intended) will be resumed in the Worthington household, the floors will be hoovered, the furniture will be dusted and the ironing basket will be bottomed ... life goes on ... until the Olympics and yet more tennis :))
Watched Wallender this evening ... my, but that is one awfully dreich (e.g. drizzly, cold, misty and miserable) looking setting - just the place to suffer from SAD, I'd say.
And talking of the weather I'd like to send my sympathies and best wishes for everyone who has been affected by the incessant rain and flooding that is happening in various parts of England and now the east coast of Scotland. The situation is dire and, having had my house flooded many years ago, I know just how destructive water can be ... there's not much more I can say except my heart goes out to all who are affected.
Take care everyone,
