  1. I get a flu shot every year, but have not done so yet.

    Thank you for all the amazing projects you have posted this week!

  2. I am due for my flu shot next month. I have a chronic illness and it is highly recommended that I receive flu and pneumonia shots. Luckily the pneumonia shot is not an annual thing. I really dislike needles, though one would think I would be use to them by now with all the blood they take from me on a regular basis!

  4. Thanks for the chance to win this cartridge!! I haven't gotten my flu shot, never have. I sure do like your cute ideas! I have so many of the cricut cartridges and CTMH stamp sets also, just haven't gotten much scrapbooking done these past few years. I babysit my 19 month old granddaughter, so not much gets done during the day. And I have been quilting, so the poor scrapbooking gets put on the back burner. I have a few ladies who borrow my cartridges fairly often, for their projects! There are so many new ones I'd sure like to add to my collection. Thanks again for all your neat ideas, samples and for this chance to win one of the new cartridges!,

  5. Hi JOY Yep GOT my FLU SHOT YESTERDAY and so did my hubby it was our Saturday date thing hey should try it gals then we went out to dinner hey it's all about the togetherness!!! What an awesome and fun week it was on your blog JOY yeppers girl dispite being under the weather you did one amazing job girl....don't know ya done did it butcha did. Loved all your cards and this Artfully Sent cartridge is amazing....I sooooo can't wait to see how you use it on a LO 'cause that's how I'll be mainly using it......CTMH cartridges rock for scrapbooking too I just don't feel they get enough good press for crafting this way with them....GIRL YOU SO ROCK!! - See more at:

  6. Great job with your projects this week. I'm loving the new cartridge! I got my flu shot last week and I'm glad I did. Lots of stuff going around already! Have a great week.


  7. no flu shot here and never will… read this and it will make you think twice and more! They aren't telling you everything!

  8. I get my flu shot every year, I am lucky enough to have an employer who has a nurse come in and get us all vaccinated for free. I hope you are feeling better Joy. Thanks for the inspiration, I am off to make a couple of Artfully Sent cards right now!

  9. Sometimes I do. Whenever I go the VA if they have them in stock I'll take it but I don't go out of my way to get them since there seems to be a line. I really enjoyed your cards this week. I'm not a strong card maker so I didn't see myself using this cart but I think I'll keep watching maybe after I could see myself using this cart, Artfully Sent. Thank you for showing us the possibilities.

  10. My husband and I will be getting our flu shot next week. Hope you are feeling better

  11. I haven't gotten my flu shot yet. My doctor said it was too early when I had a routine visit two weeks ago. But my husband is in the medical profession & his company will be giving flu shots this week & said they will be getting a booster in January if flu season is as bad as predicted. I hope you are feeling better!

  12. Thanks for the recap and the coupons!

  13. Not rcvd my flu shot yet but will soon. Thanks for recap of wonderful swing cards.

  14. I get a flu shot every year but they have not started giving them here yet.
    asked when I went to the DR. and they did not have them yet either.
    But when they get them anywhere - I am there. I do not want to be
    without a flu shot.

  15. No, we haven't gotten our flu shots, yet. However, that is on my "to do" list for this month.

  16. No flu shot yet. The new Close to My Heart Artfully Sent bundle looks like a great deal. Thank you for sharing some of the possibilities for projects. The card ideas are wonderful and as usual look so professional. Thank you for being so diligent keeping us informed of coupons that we might use. Your site was one of the first ones I subscribed to after I got my Cricut. You always provide useful information. I am always learning new things from you. Thank you for your generosity in sharing so much with us.The give away looks interesting, thank you for the chance to win it.

  17. I usually make a family activity & all of us get our flu shots together at the beginning of October then go out to dinner.

  18. Not yet -- although I tried twice to get my flu shot this week -- the first time I had my physical and while I was there the doctor said the clinic had run out of the vaccine. A few days later I went to the Cub pharmacy and when the pharmacist checked to see if my health insurance would cover it, my insurance said they would not pay for vaccines from their mini clinic in the store (a first since I've gotten vaccines at Walgreens before). I'll have to check with my clinic and see when they get more vaccine in so I can get vaccinated.

  19. This cartridge looks great. Yes I have gotten my flu shot. I am a retired nurse and know how important it is to get this injection. And pneumonia. I have seen what can happen if you don't get them.

  20. Great week of creativity, Joy! Thanks for all your hard work in spite of your flu! God bless you! I haven't gotten the flu shot yet.

  21. Thanks for the chance to win! And I hope you getting feeling 100% real soon!

  22. Lovely cards this week. Hope you are feeling better.

  23. Hi Joy! I work as a nurse in an outpatient surgery center and we are required to get them, but they have not been given yet! I hope you are feeling better! I would love to win this Soiree cart. Thanks for all the beauty you share! -Barb-

  24. Such pretty & fun cards. Thank you for sharing!

  25. I am on pins and needles! I can't wait to see who wins the new Sophisticated Soiree cartridge!!! So many possibilities with this one!..Gifting, wrapping, cardmaking, tags, and ACEO, ATC's...the list goes on for how many ways we can use and create with the Sophisticated Soiree cartridge...eeek...I am so excited!

  26. Flu shots on the To Do list for hubby and me. Love the swing cards in the new CTMH cartridge. Defintely on my wish list.

  27. I have not done the flu shot--I would say it seems way too early to be thinking about it, but apparently flu season is already here! :( Hope you're feeling better this week!

  28. I highly recommend the flu shot. My work will have a tent in the next week and we will all get it. My son is signed up through his pediatrician to get his next week. Sorry you were sick. Thanks for chance to win

  29. My doctor won't give me the flu shot right now because I am currently fighting this head/chest cold that has been going around. Hope you are feeling better!
