Yahoo. I got my gypsy up and running and even welded my first words together for my church bulletin board. Man let me tell ya so much easier putting on one whole word instead of the indivudual letters. I have been creating other bulletin board ideas on there. These ones are a little more elaborate. Once I get them cut out. (hopefully today) I will post pictures for critiquing. Thats it for today. Oh by the way I am planning on starting to do some of the challenges that are out and about out there. First one is the LID challenge on the cricut message  board. Let me know what challenges you are doing and what you think of mine.
