I’m very excited to announce the launch of my new Sportsy Greeting Card Collection! I’ve been working on these for a while now and really wanted to do a collection centred around activities and sports that was fun and not too serious. I think the name ‘Sportsy’ reflects this too 🙂
I have a lot of friends who are runners or cyclists, my family were always tennis obsessed, and I also do yoga with a lovely bunch of people, so they were my inspiration. I’m sure you also know someone (or several someones) who is a running fanatic or a cycling devotee, a golf maniac or a tennis enthusiast. These cards are for them!
I’ve tried to cover a variety of occasions, so you’ll find birthday cards, anniversary cards, good luck cards and well done / congratulations cards.
You can view the whole Sportsy Greeting Card Collection in my shop at loulongworth.co.uk (there are too many to show here!) There are some examples from each sport below though, and you can click on the photos to go straight to that particular card in my shop.
Sportsy Greeting Card Collection sampling
Yoga greeting cards
I love yoga and am part of a lovely class with other people who can also still see the funny side of it all (Happy Baby pose anyone?!) This is an example of one of the two yoga themed birthday cards in the collection.
Cards for runners
I love running and made a lot of good friends when I used to do it regularly. I’ve not run much for a while now due to various injuries and issues with my back, but still have some lovely runner friends that I stay in touch with, and am determined to get back out there again one day! Below are two examples of running themed cards in the collection. There are also good luck and well done cards for when that runner in your life needs some encouragement or applause for an event 🙂
Cycling greeting cards
I also have friends who seem to manage to cycle very impressive distances. My bum seems to get sore after just five minutes on a bike. (And it’s not like I don’t have a lot of built in padding…) So I’m in awe of anyone who can keep going for longer! There are several different cyclist themed cards too, in addition to the example below, including anniversary, good luck and congratulations cards.
Tennis greeting cards
I grew up in a family who are tennis OBSESSED! They love to play it, watch it, discuss it and my Dad even managed a tennis club for a while. Unfortunately I didn’t seem to inherit the same talent as the rest of them… It is one of the few sports I can bring myself to watch on telly though. So I couldn’t not include a few tennis themed cards in the collection… There is a tennis anniversary card in the collection as well as the birthday card below.
Cards for golfers
I’ve tried golf a couple of times. But I must admit I’m more interested in the lovely surroundings than in the sport itself. And I’m constantly worried I’m going to take a ball to the head when I’m anywhere near a golf course. It does seem to be one of those activities that people get particularly obsessed with though. So it seemed like the right thing to include a few golfing themed cards in the collection too. There is also an anniversary card version.
Fishing is the one activity in the collection that I must admit I can’t see the appeal of at all… Those poor fish! However I know that there are plenty of people who love it and I’m sure you know one or two. As well as the birthday card below I’ve also included an anniversary card in the collection.
What do you think?
I had a lot of fun creating this greeting card collection. I hope it brings a smile to the face of that sportsy fanatic you know 😀
I’d love to hear from you by email or on social media if you have any feedback or if you have any suggestions for some sports or occasions that you think I should add. And if you love any of the cards above, please pin them to one of your Pinterest boards to share with others!
