For the most part, it's really good! The 3rd one was a little difficult to catch. Did you say "Credit card"? If so, I'd say you could put a bit more stress on the 2 syllables of "credit".

In words like "Temper", your pronunciation sounds a bit like "TEMPA" with an A. This is common in some accents and dialects. But generally, it's not that strong. Focus on the difference between an A sound and a Schwa sound. 

The second "Doll" was much better than the first one too!

For "Certainly", again, make sure you're pronouncing all the syllables and don't rush. Cer-tain-ly. 

To hear native pronunciations, I always recommend the website Forvo.com. You can search the word and compare your own try to theirs. I hope it goes well
