My trip to Michael's...and a card

I went to Michael's this weekend to take advantage of the amazing sale on Cricut cartridges. I was able to really build my cartridge collection. I picked up
Mickey and Friends
Lyrical Letters
From my Kitchen
Wild Card
Stretch Your Imagination
Winter Woodland
Pooh Font
A Child's Year

and...a Gypsy!! I didn't really think I wanted one, but the price ($49) was too good to pass up, especially given the current deal of 5 free downloadable cartridges.

Sadly, my Gypsy does not work at all and needs to take a trip back to Provo. I couldn't wait to get it out of the box (by the way, why is the box so darn hard to open?) and I followed the only set of directions in the package and tried to turn on my Gypsy and....nothing. The blue light came on to indicate that it was turned on, but the screen remained totally black. I followed every set of troubleshooting suggestions I could find on-line with no luck. So sad that my new toy does not work!

So, while I had fully hoped to be posting my first Gypsy project today, I am posting an old card that I made a while back instead. For this card I used:
Doodlebug patterned paper
Create-a-Critter for the giraffe and the sentiment
Cuttlebug Traffic Jam Embossing Folder
ribbon from Michael's
pop dots

I made this card to fit inside a business sized envelope.
