Well I did not do much of anything yesterday.  I finally succumbed to the cold that everyone in the house had.  I was hoping to avoid it but it did not happen.  Since I did not feel well I took it easy yesterday and even took a nap - something I never do!  I am going to take it easy again today so that I can be ready for my workshops tomorrow.  I should be better by then since I am taking it easy and relaxing.  Hopefully I will sleep better as that is the key to getting well.

Today is our Thursday's Focus blog hop.  You should have come here from Joni's blog - Joni in the Spotlight Stamping.  I am sure she had a great project for you.  

This week we are highlighting the Sealed with Love Suite in the Occasions catalog.  To make my card I took a piece of Real Red card stock and stamped the front with one of the hearts in the set using Real Red ink.  This created a tone on tone background.  The glassine sheets were used to create a cute envelope that I attached with a glue dot.  I stamped the 4 joined hearts twice and used the matching framelit to cut them out.  One of the framelits was added to the card using dimensionals so that it was falling out of the envelope.  I added some of the white ribbon from the ribbon combo pack in the lower right hand corner at an angle.  This layer was added to a Whisper White card base.  I then added the other framelit on top of the ribbon with as dimensional.  To finish off my card I stamped the sentiment from Tin of Cards using Real Red ink and punched it out with a 1 3/4" circle punch.  It was attached to a silver doily using Tear & Tape.  The completed sentiment was added to the card using dimensionals.  Here is my completed card.
