I was looking at a Heidi Swapp stamp set I have called Inspire, which has a pair of glasses in it, and the sentiment "Talk nerdy to me" popped into my head. I know I've seen it somewhere on blogs, can't remember where, but I thought with Valentine's Day fast approaching, this would be a funny card to put together. I didn't have this sentiment stamp, so I had to create my own using a mix of alphabet stamps and dies. Incidentally, the inspire stamp set includes the stamp "to:" in it, so by using my markers, I was able to forego the colons and keep only the word. Markers also allowed me to use Stampin' Up!'s Just Sayin' stamp set and keep only the word bubble and add my own text inside.
I found some Authentique patterned papers (Loyal collection) in my stash that had the right preppy flair to it, and came up with this creation, using the Deconstructed Sketch #173.
