More picture including Gypsy screen shots below the instructions!

I am so excite to be a member of the BBTB2 Design Team.... It has long been a dream of mine to be on the BBTB design team.... and here I am!!.... this weeks challenge was to use the the Card Cut on From My Kitchen... to find it use the shift key and function key 3rd down on second row ... its the card feature and then shift... then its on the forth row down and the second row over...that is the cut in the challenge...I must admit that I thought oh my goodness what in the world am I going to do with this cut!!... and then it came to me... I altered the cut on my Gypsy... screen shots and instructions below... Be sure and stop by the BBTB2 and see what the other Design Team members created!!

Gypsy files for this card are available by e-mail... just copy and paste the following e-mail address into your own e-mail ... ... and I will be glad to send you the file.

*Because of all the welding I wasn't able to include Cricut cuts for this card.*

From My Kitchen
Card cut (choose the shift button and the coffee cup feature key) cut @ w 3.65 x h 2.38...
Larger card cut for the inside cut @ w 3.65 x h 2.38... for this cut you will need to unlink the w & h.
Rectangle for behind card cut @ w 2.36 x h 3.57... for this cut you will need to unlink the w & h.
Larger sentiment rectangle cut @ w 2.19 x h 0.88 for this cut you will need to unlink the w & h.
Smaller sentiment rectangle cut @ w3.97 x h 0.63 for this cut you will need to unlink the w & h.
The sentiment is computer generated.
Triangle that creates the corners inside the card cut  cut @ w 0.90 x h 0.40 for this cut you will need to unlink the w & h.
Circle that creates the corners inside the card cut cut @ w 0.42 x h 0.32 for this cut you will need to unlink the w & h.
Weld these two shapes together...then duplicate and use the flip features for each corner...for the larger inside peace you will need to change the size of the grouped triangle and circle to w 1/17 x h 0.67 for this cut you will need to unlink the w & h.... you can duplicate this for each corner and flip each piece to  fit in the corners.
Walk in My Garden
Snail and its layer and shadow cut @ h 0.93 ...set the height on each and the width will be sure to relink your w & h when you do this.
Easter 2010
Grass cut @ w 1.46 x h 1.0 ... place two on the mat and weld together for the length you need for inside your window.... before you weld these to the window duplicate and add a rectangle cut @ w 2.50 x h 0.21  from George to the bottom.. weld these three pieces together then duplicate.

The easiest way to get everything to line up on each layer is this....Place your card on the mat... then weld your grass to it...then weld the snail shadow to the grass...then weld 2 corners to the top.... group all of this together... duplicate... then delete the snail shadow... duplicate this and delete  your grass .... now for the tricky part... on the piece where you have deleted your grass and your snail click on this then click on your weld key.... click on the triangle to un-group just the triangle ...then click on the circle inside the triangle to un-group that... click on your group button again... now click on any clear space on your mat... then click your group button and click on your un-grouped triangle and your un-grouped circle... this will group just these two items together so you can duplicate them and make corners for the bottom of your top square...see mat.... after you get all your corners placed group everything together and make sure everything is welded.

I'm praying that my ole back will heal soon and I can get back to doing what I love...its been very depressing, not being able to sit and create for long periods of time, like I used to...but God is good and I know He has a plan for me!!!
