Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Hola! Stopping by today to share a fun little card and share a little teaser for this week. :)

I’m a food nerd. Actually, my dream after high school was to go to culinary school, but I put that dream on hold to get a well-rounded education at a university. So naturally, the new Bon Appetit stamp set from Kelly Purkey for Simon Says is right up my alley. I love the graphic style of this set – it makes for a really great clean and simple card!

I used Hero Hues black dye ink to stamp the animals (I put them all on one block to stamp at the same time); this ink is really great for solid black images. The background paper is one of my latest loves – the Bold & Bright Double Dot patterned paper from Bo Bunny. I’m apologizing in advance right now for how much I’m going to use this patterned paper on everything for the next few weeks!

One of the reasons I was inspired to make this CAS card was a little event I have coming up. Besides being a culinary nerd, I’m also a nerd in general. Case and point: how in love I am with Game of Thrones. Jake got me into it, and now I can’t stop watching and can’t wait for the season three premiere next Sunday! Our group of friends is really into it, so we’re having a Game of Thrones potluck feast next Sunday to celebrate.

Jake and I will be preparing ham and some fresh-baked bread, and our friends will be bringing the wine, potato dishes, vegetables and beer. I couldn’t be more excited! I totally bought the Game of Thrones cookbook from Amazon, too. What can I say? I love being a nerd.

Also, make sure to come back tomorrow for the beginning of a really exciting week. There will be giveaways (lots of them!), fun and a very exciting release of something that’s been a long time coming on Friday! Make sure to stop by tomorrow for the beginning of the fun. <3 I can’t wait to share this celebration with you!


See you tomorrow!

    Hi Britta,
    Wow…I’m loving your CAS card! I love how the images pop on Kraft and the polka dot background is perfection!
    From one nerd to another…Your potluck feast sounds like it’s going to be a blast! How fun that you guys can enjoy a homemade meal and a great show together…keep the beer flowin’ :-)
    I can’t wait to see what’s happening tomorrow ~ You’re such a tease! Lawn Fawn is one of my all time FAVE stamp companies, so I’m really psyched over here!
    Thanks for the heads up…see you tomorrow!

  2. What a cute card! I am also a HUGE Lawn Fawn addict!! Can’t wait to see what’s up tomorrow :) And I know how you feel about your Game of Thrones – that’s how I am about Once Upon A Time!

    Very cute card Britta. My husband and sons are huge Game of Thrones fans. Have you seen the Ommegang Game of Thrones beer. It is a blond ale and my husband has added it to my shopping list this week. Here is an article about it Enjoy your party.

    • It’s an awesome show! I’ve seen the beer and am officially going out to look for it this week. I’m not a huge fan of light beers, but I’ll buy anything co-branded with GoT. Haha! I’ve read that the fall release is going to be a darker one. I’m excited for that too! Let me know if you find it and how it is!

        I looked for the beer today at our local grocery stores and could not find it. Another couple was also looking for it. I’ll keep checking when I shop and maybe I’ll come across it soon.
