More pictures below the instructions.
Gypsy file for this card available by e-mail... just copy and paste this e-mail address to your own e-mail account...

I am so excited about this card!!..I have been waiting to use this cartridge...but was so blank about what to do... then I was looking through the cartridge and this idea popped into my head... I did think well what would you send this card for... but took a leap of faith and figured it would come to me... and it did... this would be a wonderful Thank You card for somebody that had done something extra special for you ... like cook for you when you got out of the hospital.... took care of your animal... when that came to me in the middle of making the card I just got all excited!... thank you for you comments...and thank you so so much for looking.. Hugs, Jeannie

Create A Critter
Tree and its layers cut @ h 3.98 set the height and the width will be right on all cuts... I cut a trunk for each layer... I have two green layers...then the layer with the leaves cut out... I the first layer is adhered to the background... the next is popped from there...then the leaf layer is popped from there... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 4 inches.
Owl and its layers cut ! h 1.86...set the height and the width will be right...on the Cricut I would cut these at 1 3/4 inches.
Squirrel and its layers cut @ h 1 inch...set the height and the width will be right...on the Cricut I would cut these at 1 inch.
A Child's Year
"Love" cut @ w 1.80 x h 1.00.. one is welded to the top layer of the tree... the other is adhered to that... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 inch... twice and glue them together then glue them to the tree.
Easter 2010
 Taller Grass cut @ w 1.46 x h 1.0 inches...there are three of these welded and grouped together...on the Cricut I would cut these at 1 inch.
Shorter grass is the taller grass duplicated... just change the height on the grouped piece to 0.75 inches...on the Cricut  I would cut 3 or 4 of these at 3/4 and inch.
Circle welded to grass cut @ w 1.05 x h 1.42 inches...on the Cricut I would cut this at 1 1/2 inches.
Circle with text cut @ w 0.91 x h 1.23 inches...on the Cricut I would cut this at 1 inch.

I have been lurking around your site for some time now. But I just had to take some time to tell you how absolutely amazingly talented I think you are. Your cards are soooooo fabulous!!! They totally inspire me. I also appreciate that you take the time to type out all of the instructions on how to make these amazing projects. I made the bunny one for my Mom for Easter and she was ga-ga for it. I have also made the Pooh bear for my hubby (who doesn't usually commment too much on my crafty stuff but he did on your card). I always tell people that I didn't design them but just copied the "recipe". I am having surgery next week and will not be able to work for 2 weeks. I am so looking forward to making most of your beautiful cards!!!! I also love that we seem to have the same cartridges. I always hold my breath when looking at the instructions because I am afraid I won't have one of the carts. Thanks so much for your creativity and willingness to share it with us. Keep 'em coming!!!!!!

OH Jeannie,
Whoooooooo would have thought that you can keep topping yourself?!

I absolutely "nuts" about this card....

can you imagine that when they get together what dinner would be like? Mr Owl would probably bring sushi and then Mr Squirrel would bring a "nut-atarian" dish of some sort.

I absolutely love love love this card....

Hopefully my cartridge will arrive soon =)

Thank you so much for sharing!

I love your cards! I came across your site through the Cricut message board. I am fairly new to card making, and I LOVE it. I set up my own blog to share some of my designs, but haven't been good about getting my pictures posted. I'm hoping to get it updated by the end of this week and then post cards 1 or 2 at a time as I make them. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations.
