Andy Murray Did It!!
I couldn't bear to watch Andy in the US Open final. Youngest son kept me updated until I went to bed. I was delighted to hear the good news when waking this morning. I am so proud to share his nationality. Credit should also go to his parents and his lovely grandparents who have supported him through thick and thin.
I decided to make a card to celebrate his commitment to success.
This is a variation of a patriotic card that I have made several times before. Once I saw the Hero Arts sentiment I knew that I had to use the same format.
This card was made at a Craft Group that I attended for the first time tonight.
Local crafters just go along with their own materials and craft ....and chat.
I had to join the community centre as a member to take part. It cost me £1 for the year. (Sh... don't tell Aberdeen City Council!!)
I sat next to Wendy who paints pictures. (I also discovered that I have know her husband in a work capacity for years) She photographs her artwork and makes beautiful cards with the images. Wendy attends an art class at a centre very near to my home. She encouraged me to go along and give it a go. ... tempted.....
Two of the ladies were making the most amazing lace creations. They both said that it was an easy skill to learn.... Yeahhh. I am still in awe of what they produced.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thanks to Fiona for asking me to come along.
