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.

For my Babe... my forever and my everything...

I am entering this card to Ms. Emma Aguilar's Throwback Thursday "Cricut-less" Challenge.  Woot! Woot! I am finally able to join her and her creative followers again.  Sometimes, it's really hard to push yourself when your muse suddenly disappears.  Well, thanks to my sweet darling daughter.  She was the one who pushed me to make cards.  Actually it was more of a selfish reasons since she really wants me to make her a card for Daddy. 
Going back to the challenge, the rule is so simple for this week.  She wants us to make a card entry that is Cricut-less, with some kind of a 'thank you' theme/sentiments and you gotta use old school tools.  Here's my take:
I used TGF Miss Anya Love stamp.  All these Miss Anya stamps are so sweet.  I colored the image with Copic then adhered the image to a die-cut doily mat.  I got the doily dies from MFT.  Then, I matted the image and diecut again on Wilton doilies. If you noticed the image is sitting in a sort of dried grass/leaves, which I hope represents the current season - Autumn. The dried grass/leaves was a homemade fluff (flower soft), which I will blog later..
Made the sentiments from a set of sentiments/words stamps from Stampendous. Then embellished the cards with some flowers, glittered ribbon and some flourish bling from Prima.
PAPER: DCWV, GP 110 white and some unknown CS brand
STAMP: The Greeting Farm and Stampendous
INKPAD: Memento Tuxedo Black
OLD SCHOOL TOOLS: Cuttlebug machine, MFT doily die, MS edge punches, PC paper trimmer and ATG gun
COLORING: Copic markers
EMBELLISH: Glittered ribbons, Prima flowers and Prima bling
OTHERS: Doilies and homemade fluff (flower soft)
Hope my Baby will like the card I made for him.  I misses him so much...SAD, SAD, SAD
