For My Favorite Nerd Valentine



This is the Valentine I made for my 16 year old son. He proudly calls himself a NERD. He says he doesn't understand why some people say the word like it's a bad thing. I am pretty proud of my son. He maintains a high grade point average as well as participates in the following activities: marching band, symphonic band, plays in a trombone trio, tennis team, academic team, NHS, Smokebusters group, is a mentor for freshmen students, tutors in the mornings, spanish club treasurer, lectors at church, youth group at church, and does volunteer work. Whew! I'm tired just typing all of that! Anyway, I couldn't resist making him a Valentine that celebrates his inner nerdiness. I saw the word NERD spelled out this way using the periodic table and couldn't resist incorporating it into his card. I am entering this card into the weekly challenge on the Cricut Circle blog.

Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder on the heart
