  1. Wow, Joy, that card is so pretty, and so easy to make! Love the butterfly stamp in the corner. Your voice is starting to sound a bit stronger, so I hope that you are feeling a lot better, now. Thank you for making us projects when you are so ill!

  2. Awesome card! You are awesome to make videos when you are not feeling well. Hope you are beginning to feel better. Your voice was stronger today. :o) No, we haven't gotten our flu shots, yet; but, that is on our agenda. Thank you for sharing your time, talents, and imagination with us.

  3. Adorable card. Question...Is the fold markings on the cards done with a slit in the paper?

  4. Hands-up to you for creating a card despite your flu. We haven't gotten our flu shots yet. We always go to the hospital which sponsors free flu shots to the public annually. It is scheduled on Sept. 26. Hopefully, nobody gets sick until then.

  5. Didn't get it yet not at our Clinic yet but will DEFINITELY get it I've gotten it for the last 11 years!!
    Love your's so beautiful thanks Joy for sharing your fab ideas and awesome clever and creative ideas.
    Sure hope you're all better soon!!

  6. Beautiful!! I love the colors too! :)

  7. ...that cartridge looks like so much fun! Thanks for sharing the pretty card you made. Hope you get well quick!,
    No flu shot yet but I plan to get one.

  8. Super cute card! I just got my Artfully Sent cartridge 2 days ago & made my first card just now. It is such an awesome cartridge! I used the coordinating frame stamps too & I love them! Thanks for the giveaway & for continuing to share with us while you're sick. Hope you are feeling better each day. As far as the flu shot goes.... I have never gotten one & don't plan on it. That's the short answer & I have my reasons but I won't turn this comment into a lecture, lol. Anyway, have a great day!

  11. Joy, that card is so beautiful! I hope you are getting better every day. I just got my flu shot last week. They give them to us at work for free so I'm very fortunate.

  15. I did not get the flu shot (I hate shots/needles) - luckily I rarely get the flu; more often I get colds - usually starting with a very sore throat. :-( Hope your voice fully returns soon!

  16. Love your super cute card. This cartridge seems like a real winner! Thanks for your great video, I always enjoy them and I glad you feel better. No flu shot, hate needles!!!

  20. What a cheerful card! I can relate to the cat hair incident! No I have not gotten the shot yet as my doctor recommended October. I hope you feel better soon.

  21. I do hope you feel better soon Joy! I finally ordered the cartridge and I can't wait to play. I love that stamp set with the butterflies so I will definitely be trying a card like this one. Take care!

  22. That is a beautiful card, Joy! Thanks for making the video, even though you are not well! Hope you are all better soon. What a champion you are!!! I love the paper you used. (My special embellishment is DOG hair!) We plan to get our flu shots.

  24. Now, I really like the new twist on this swing card! Perfect to have
    the greeting picking through to the front! Very clever! Love it!

  25. Love the new card. I hesitate to get the flu shot b/c it doesn't seem to work for me: I get the flu regardless of whether I get the shot or not.

  26. Just got my cartridge today. Can't wait to cut some cards! I would love to win the cartridge you are giving away!

  27. Didn't get my flu shot, yet. But I did take my 90 year old dad to get his. After seeing (and hearing) how sick you've been, I think I will put it on my to-do list for this week! Glad you are feeling somewhat better now!
