When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Throwback Thursday Challenge

For weeks now, I've been trying to play at  Ms. Emma Aguilar's Throwback Thursday Challenge  yet too  many things are going on with our lives and this was the first chance I get to play with her weekly challenges. 

Anyways, the rule for this week's challenge is to create a "SPORTS' theme project, using "Sportsmania" cartridge or any old cartridges that has sports relevance.  My little boy had been bugging me for weeks now to make a project using Disney - Pixie Cars.  But nothing would fit the images on the cart until now.  I made the design while being out yesterday afternoon and been cutting images and doing paper piecing almost the whole night.  With this design, I combined Pixie Cars and Everyday Paper Dolls cartridges.  I really had a hard time doing this card but I was so pleased with the result...

I am not really in the mood to ink the edges of the card so I decided to use my precision pen and white jelly roll pen.  I also added some bling, bunch of baker's twine from the Divine Twine and some stamp sentiments.  I also used Peachy Keen faces.
When my baby boy saw this card, he started chanting non-stop, "I want it for my birthday"...
RECIPE:
PAPER: Embassy, PTI, MS, Stampin up!, CTMH and DCWV
STAMPS: Peachy Keens, Autumn Leaves and Fiskars
INKPADS: Memento Tuxedo Back,  Versamark
TOOLS: Cricut Expression, Gypsy, MS Score board (scored the trophy just to give a little dimention), Fiskar circle punch, PC paper trimmer, Marvy Uchida heat tool, 
CARTRIDGE: Disney Pixie Cars, Everyday Paper Dolls
EMBELLISH: Baker's twine and metallic bling
OTHERS: Jelly roll pen, precision pen and white embossing powder

To note, lately, I've been joining some hard challenges and I think the harder the challenge, the more I am having fun!
