I am happy to share my Gypsy file by email...just copy and paste this email address into your own email account...

I realized that I needed a couple of b'day cards that I need to make and send...they may be late...this is one of them... I saw this cut from Gypsy Wanderings with the music notes in it and the card grew from there...I just loved this cut!!... this was not one of those cards where I felt I knew just what it was going to look like when I finished....I was so excited when I finished and was so tickled with the outcome.... thank you so much for looking... I thrive on your comments!!... have a wonderful day... Hugs, Jeannie
*No Cricut cuts included on the card because of all the welding.*
Gypsy Wanderings
Bookplate cut with notes in it cut @ w 3.48 x h 4.45
Bookplate shadow blackout cuts for the shaped card (in red welded to the rectangles) cut @ w 3.95 x h 4.45... I placed one on the mat and welded a square from George @ w 3.42 x h have to unlink the width and height to get this size...
weld and group these two shapes
Bookplate background cut...that goes behind the Bookplate note cut cut @ w 3.95 x h 4.45.
Frame Bookplate for inside of card cut @ w 3.37 x h 3.80.
Top Bookplate cut for inside of card cut @ w 2.97 x h 3.35.
Branch and its layer cut @ w 3.79 x h 1.37.
I cut two extra layers in green so I would have the extra leaves... I welded one of  regular branch cuts  onto the Bookplate Note cut to have a good place to pop dot the branch from.
Home Decor
Bird and its shadow cut @ h 1.63 ...set the height and the width will be right...I placed an extra shadow from the bird on the Bookplate Note cut and welded it there so have a good place to pop dot the assembled bird and its shadow to...the other bird is on the inside of the card.
All letters cut @ h 0.77 set the height and the width will be right...overlap the letters for each word and weld together.
There are two mat shots because I had to lay this out on two mats ...I did this best by  putting all the cuts on one mat...then I named the file and saved it... then I deleted the items I wanted on the second page...and saved it with a -1 added to the end of the file name... then I opend the file with all the cuts... removed the cuts alread on page one...and saved this file with a -2 at the end of the file name.

I have got to tell you..way to go on all your followers! I just adore anything that you do and apparently do does everyone else! LOL!
I am trying to think how long its been since we've talked and I think it has been awhile, with that said I have current pix of my kiddo's on my blog and my baby Cody just turned 10 months old. So pretty busy between the 3 kids and crafting!
I hope to get over here more often now!
Take care Jeannie

Oh Jeannie,
I love this card. It's almost like birds are nature's choir with the note in the background....
But I guess this bird has a speaker since the note is so big =)
Absolutely fabulous!

Hey if I had to sing Happy birthday I would sing it loud, proud and off key =)

Great Job!
