Look what I got.......

Yay! Look what I got from FedEx this weekend.  I was not planning on getting a Gypsy until maybe at Christmas time but last weekend I was on  Ebay getting something for my hubby so I decided to search for Gypsy.  I am so glad I did....I got this for an unbelievable price.

At first me and my Gypsy were not getting along...I expected to pick it up an immediately start designing some awesome cards.  After a few hours of frustration and a little #?*!, I decided to watch some YouTube videos and that made all the difference.  I think I'm figuring this thing out.  This is the first card I made with it. I stretched the Paper Doll Dressup fence and the Zooballoo grass to  5-1/4" .  This is an awesome feature....previously I would have cut two of the shapes and then overlapped them when I glued them down.  This looks so much cleaner.    I also love that you can see everything on the screen prior to cutting....this will prevent so many mistakes.  Sometimes I guess at what size to cut and then have to recut to get the right size.  I really excited about all the fun things I can try with this.  I plan on trying a shaped card next!

PS-  The little birdie is from Create A Critter and the clouds are from Zooballoo. Pattern Paper is SEI.
