Gypsy Wandering

I ****embled all 6 pumpkins and popped the second set of three from the first set of 3.. you could actually just cut 2 sets of shadows and one set of pop pieces..and pop the ****embled top pieces form the second set of shadows and get the same effect.

Dear Jeannie,

This is a wonderful card! If my Mother were alive, I would so lift this, as owls were a particular favorite of hers.
A question: When you put all of the shapes you want for a project on the cutting mat in the Gypsy, does the Cricut cut all of them or just the ones you select with a box around them?
With Warm Regards,
Carol Broney

You are so good with the gypsy... I love how you give all the directions.. I keep thinking of getting a gypsy, but I heard of all the problems they were having with them not cutting.. Apparently yours is ok. I wonder why you can't leave a comment on my blog.. :-(
