Market Street Geek Love

Who's ready for some geek love?
I've been wanting to make a graph with the Pretty Perfect Grid ever since I got it in my hot little hands.  I started by stamping the grid in gray onto gray cardstock, leaving a bit of a border. Of course, we all know that you should always label your axes, and the two sentiments from Simple Joys were perfect to show my love for the hubby growing over time (to really geek out on you, I wanted it to be an exponential graph, but I think I would have gotten to x = 4 before it went off the card, so I went with the linear equation y = 2/3x + 1).  I thought about just adding some bling for the points, but then remembered this small little heart from Gone Campin' that was the perfect size!

Then, being the good stamper that I am, I clean off the sentiment stamps and start putting them back on the sheet, when what do I spy?   Yes, there is an actual equation in Simple Joys.  It was like Angelica knew there were geeks out there wanting to make a love graph.

One more note: If you enjoyed this post, thank your math teacher.  Or any teacher.  Maybe get your kids in the spirit of Thanksgiving and have them write thank you letters to their teachers.  Maybe write one yourself to that teacher that inspired you to _____.  Believe me, it will make his or her heart grow-and this time it definitely will be exponentially!

Well, yes, there is a certain geek factor to this, but it's all good! Perfect axes labelling, and I think the linear equation works just fine. :D It all equals a great card!

Oh Meg, I have a soft spot for nerds already...but a nerd card? Fantastic! And the equation is perfect. I think. Ok, I'm guessing ;) But I know the card is perfect!!

ALWAYS label your axes! I simply love this lovely geeky love card :)
I'm still in touch with my high-school English teacher - we chat on FB :) I wish more people remembered their teachers, or at the very least expressed their appreciation for the hard work they do.

LOL, this is totally fabulous! I'd love to see a tall card with an exponential growth. ;D
