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.

Linda's First Challenge

One of the sweet lady who found my blog happens to run her first fun challenge and she invited me to join her.  Her name is Linda and her blog is, Lindascreativity.  Her first challenge is Preprinted Cards.  She wants us to turn a dull ready made card into something nice and pretty.

I admit I am guilty of hoarding those pretty pre-printed cards and it's been sitting and collecting dust in my craft room.  Like Linda, when I grab those cards, I have all the intention of turning it into something that has my trademark on it.  But like usual, I never get the chance to play with them.  Thanks Linda for this awesome challenge!

Here's my take.  Just so you know I bought these cute little cards at Target Supercenter in May 2010.  Yeah, that long!  I got these bright and cheery pre-printed cards for $1 and it has 8 sets of cards and envies.  I made all 8 cards in less than an hour and to be honest I want to make some more!  Okay, enough babbling...
This is how it looks like after taking it out of the packaging
Almost done...
Now, I have a total of 8sets of card and who would think that it was just a $1 when I got it.
I was planning to include this set of cards as added gift to the lucky winner of my blog candies.
A closer look...
PAPER: Recollection, Bazzill and GP 110 white
STAMPS:  Hero Arts
INKPAD: Stampin Up! (Poppy Red)
TOOLS: Cricut Expression, Gypsy, EK Success scallop circle punch, PC paper trimmer, ATG, Zip Dry, and Zig 2-way glue pen
CARTRIDGE: Sentimentals (stamp) and Creative Memories Reminisce Accent

I totally love this!  I need to make one more batch for other the blog candy winner...
Please head out to Linda's blog and let's support her first challenge. Thanks for looking!
