  1. Thank you. I have a Joy and am looking to make cards with it. I am anxious to see what I can do with your class.

  2. I know this isn’t beginner stuff, but I would add the word home or love or whatever sentiment I wanted using the Cricut pen, including when I created the card front. Just a thought. Thanks again for your tutorials.
