Thursday Tutorial for FCCB - Word Window...

Hi All,
I'm Sheila and I will be taking over our Thursday's Tutorials.
Thanks again to Holly for manning this 'post' for the past few weeks, 
she did such a great job.
I've been paper crafting since the fall of 2007, and purchase my Cricut Expression in winter of 2010. I've been hooked ever since. 
I like to say that the cards I make are little works of art expressed from the heart.
I hope you'll bear with me while I try to bring you something new and different for the next few weeks.

One of the most useful tools I've found, is my Gypsy.
Another Sheila, over at She's a Sassy Lady has a series of very helpful videos called Gypsy made simple. She demonstrates an absolutly gorgeous Get Well card here that has kind of a word window. This technique makes a very nice card like this one pictured below.
The videos below shows how you can do it too.

Here's my version below.
Thanks for stopping by,  Hope you've found this helpful.
