new challenge from the Nerdy Girls, sponsored by Candy Shoppe Designs!

okay, it's the 7th of the month, and that means it's NERDY GIRL TIME! yep, new challenge over at Envious (a.k.a. NVS - Nerdy Victorious Scrappers)...

sooooooo, what can you do with this inspiration?

absolutely HOT, right? well, we want you to make SOMETHING that reflects some of the elements or the mood of this collage (brought to you by the lovely Ally!), and show us! play with the colours, or the images, or the words, or the way it's laid out... we aren't fussy - just PLAY!

normally i create a page for my art journal, and occasionally i scrap, but this time i was inspired to make a card. see, i had been eyeballing this stamp for a WHILE, and was totally GIDDY when i saw it for sale as on its own (rather than in a set) during my trip up to Canada a couple of weeks ago. WOOT!

i lurrrrrved the colours Ally chose - that blue is HOT, and the black and white just makes it pop even more! - and the little doodly hearts, and the happy little sentiment, and i even played up the way the photos are framed... here she be:

inspired? well if not by me, then you will DEFINITELY be inspired by our other Nerdy Girls, including the newest addition to our team, Emmeli - she's AMAZING, and a perfect fit for Envious! (Welcome, Em!)

join us and you could win something SCRUMPTIOUS from the fabby CANDY SHOPPE DESIGNS! we can't show you yet what you might win, but trust me when i say that the previous prizes they've donated have been AMAZING. so we have ONE player already (as of Monday evening at nearly 7 pm), and we just need 4 more so we can give one winner a prize! ANNNNND we've still got a couple of empty desks, so you could be the next Nerdy Girl!

i can't believe i've been showing the blogosphere my inner nerd for nearly a YEAR already. where has the time gone?!

playing along with the following:
The Crafty Pad - use RIBBON (oh, boy, did i use ribbon! isn't it GORGEOUS?!)
Papertake Weekly - squeaking in for their Anything Goes challenge (my "something old" is that fantastic ribbon - i swear i've been hanging onto it for nearly three years, though i'm not sure why!)
Creative Card Crew - Gothic challenge (she looks like the majority of the girls who used to go to the club i frequented for more than 10 years - from the fishnet thigh-highs to the short skirt to the corset to the ruffly sleeves - okay so maybe even *I* dressed like that on occasion!)

i'll be back in a couple of days with new Charisma and Some Odd Girl projects to share! :D
