Help me cricut girls

So this is pretty much a spin off of my other thread but I will explain my problem a little more and see if you have any ideas.

The theme for next Spring's women's retreat, at our church, is 'The Jewel of Genuine Joy'. My mom is one of the people in charge of it. She bought these big diamonds that she wants to put the word 'joy' on in frosted vinyl. It will kind of look like it was etched into the stone. I did one using my Plantin Schoolbook cart. and it looked fine, but she was hoping for more of a script. We already decided (per the other thread) that Opposites Attract and Joy of the season aren't going to work for a linked word. The space I have to work with is 1/2" by 1/2"

So...any ideas of fonts that would work. I could probably get a new cart out of this deal so my next thought was Jasmine since it is on my list;) If all else fails we just use Plantin' Schoolbook and deal with it, She just wanted it a little 'prettier'.

I like the Printing 101 cartridge's font selections. There's one on there that is not really script, but is close and very pretty. But you can't write the word all in one either. GL Lena!

I have the cursive cart, and that might actually work. I haven't used it yet, but I bet if you go to the forums at cricut.com, you'll find some good examples of fonts strung together to look like script.

I can try to play around with some different carts for you tonight or this afternoon on my gypsy. So the only space you have is 1/2"by 1/2" for the whole word JOY? I will see what I can do and find out.

Yup! That is what's making it tricky.
I am ordering Jasmine. We really like the font and it is on my wishlist. So I want it whether it works for this project or not.

I was trying to play with this on DS and the shortest height wise I could make the word was 1 inch on Cursive 101 and Jasmine. I just have the trial version of DS so I'm not very good at it yet.
