In Pursuit of my Tennis Passion

So I've been away for a bit and it was exciting. First of all I got to visit my middle daughter who has just moved with her husband to Toronto! It was a double pleasure because I had purchased tickets for the Rogers Cup (Canada's Tennis Tournament) even before we knew they were moving.

I spent four exciting, hot days at the Rexall Centre watching people like Milos Raonic, Andy Murray, Djokovich, Del Potro, and Tsonga, exercising their skills. This was the first afternoon so there wasn't a huge crowd...

But I had a great seat... beside the camera man!
And in case you don't see how this has anything to do with stamping, well... Lindt is one of the sponsors and gave a free box of chocolates to everyone who brought in their ticket stub... and I was there for 8 sessions...

And we all know stampers LOVE chocolate...

Unfortunately there aren't any Lindt Chocolate Boutiques in Nova Scotia where I live so I gave the ticket stubs to my daughter in Toronto and she picked them up after we left. :0) (Or I would have eaten them all myself!)

I'll be back tomorrow with a paper stamping sample to share!

Happy Stamping

  1. My husband, daughter, and myself went to the Rogers Cup several years back. We had a great time. We are from North Carolina. Right now the Winston-Salem Open is in progress. My husband has volunteered for the second year and gets to drive the players to the tournament. He is in heaven. He has texted me all day names:Sam Querry, Tsonga, Nalbandian, Melisse, James Blake. Thanks for sharing your pictures!
