Today the Design Team used the shadow feature on several Cricut cartridges.

I would love to ask a favor of all of you PLEASE.
We all know how much I LOVE Cricut!!!!
A friend of mine sent this post to me from facebook. This is a post about the Silhouette vs. the Cricut..... The problem is they only asked Silhouette people, well if I asked all of you about Silhouette or Cricut of course MOST of you would say Cricut.
I just think it is terrible that they only asked Silhouette fans....
I could not believe all that was said about Cricut without actually owning one, go figure....
I myself own both the Silhouette Cameo AND Every CRICUT machine that they make, every cartridge and a gypsy (well 2 of them) I also have 4 Cricut Expressions, Cricut Cake, E2, Cricut Mini.... I think you get the picture. Over the past month I have seen monumental improvements that Cricut has made.... please go to www.cricut.com and have a look around also here are a few of the updates for help guides.... they really do listen to what WE want. Here is a great guide and place to find more ideas and help, they are also making a TON of Tutorials and Help guides.....
So after looking at those things (just for fun).... I would love if you could go and make a positive comment on this Facebook post. Be honest but always positive....
