Each designer has made a card based on one theme from the Cards For Him Class.
I was inspired by the "At the Office" lessons to create my card.


I started with some My Mind's Eye patterned paper and matted it with some ocean tides card stock.
Then, I die cut some rustic white and pure poppy card stock with my Office Edges Confetti Cuts die.
I stamped the alphabet stamp from Class Act, masking out the letter "o". 
In its place, I stamped a little heart from I Like You
I coloured in the "I" & "U" with a marker & added a little Tim Holtz paper clip.
I stamped the Beautiful Banners and then selectively inked & stamped the "i love you always & forever" sentiment from Lots to Say.
Then, I die cut it, using the Beautiful Banners Confetti Cuts coordinating die.

I'm also linking this card up for this week's






















Ready for the blog hop list?  Grab a cup of coffee and buckle up!  You are in for a treat, we've got tons of inspiration in store for you!
Oh, and before you go...



Thanks for looking!
