Sports Mom Car Vinyl

Wow, has it been awhile.  We had an amazing summer and school is in full swing.  Now I can get back to crafting.
We have 3 boys in 3 different sports.  For football, I ordered the car decal and put the wrong number number on it.  Baseball didn't order one and you just don't get to order anything for golf.
At first I made their decals from Sports Mania.  I had numbers and names...they looked awesome.  I went to open it this morning on Design Studio and it said that the file was empty...WHAT?????
I saw this similar one on a car yesterday that had lots of bling...oh I love bling, but I didn't think the husband would like it as much :)
First, I created this image on DS.  You can see that I cut it out a couple of times.  I was going to do different color vinyl, but since I am impatient and did not want to venture to HL, I used all white.
M - Plantin Schoolbook 3"
Baseball - Sports Mania 2 1/2"
Football - Sports Mania 2 3/4"
Golf Ball - Sports Mania 1 1/2"
I welded the M and the baseball together.  I also welded the golf ball and other M together.
This is what it looked like when I took the outside vinyl away.
For my Cricut I set everything at:
Speed - 2
Pressure - 2
Blade - 6
This works amazing for me.
 Next came the tricky part.  I had to place everything on transfer paper...aaaahhhhhhwwwww!!!!
It was not that hard, it was time consuming and all the little cut outs from the balls are still stuck to my nails.
This is the final product on my truck.  I am thrilled because I made this. 
When I pick up the boys today, I know the first thing will be..."Where is my name and number and team name?"....boys!!!!
