Anyone for Tennis?

Evening, all! And welcome to my new followers!

The thank you cards I made last week have been distributed, so I'll be posting them over the next few days. They all have a sporty theme, since the Church Holiday Club was about sport.  The first two are made with a digi of Anya from The Greeting Farm

 Isn't she cute? The bp on this one is from a book called 'Papers Papers Papers' which I picked up several years ago from The Book People. IRL the lime green dots look like tennis balls. The Tennis Net is made with a Trellis Deep Edger Punch by Martha Stewart. The ribbon was originally a sparkly silver, from Papermania via Hobbycraft, which I coloured with my Speccies. Unfortunately I can't find the lists of colours I made when doing these cards - they are somewhere in my Craft Hovel, underneath all the junk.

I suspect that neither Kim and Aggie from 'How Clean Is Your House?' nor the entire Time Team would be willing to excavate in there...

The bp on this one is a snippet of Nitwits paper but there's no note of which collection it's from.

(How do you guys organise your digi papers? I have them all in folders on my laptop, but I can never remember what colours and patterns belong to which folder and it takes forever to search through them!)

The Marianne 'Thanks' is die-cut from silver card that came in a pack meant for children's crafts. I used Nesties to cut the circles, and Mowed Lawn DI to distress the edges.

I apologise for the photos, the colours are a bit brighter in reality.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you'll all having a great week!

LOVE your sporty cards Mags, the 'tennis ball' DP is just perfect.
Sorry, can't help with your digi organising .. I don't have a printer at home so tend to steer away from them!
