This Old Thing?!?

Pin It


Happy Monday, crafty-chicks ... hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today's card project was created for the current Etsy Inspired and Frosted Designs challenges ... among others.

I created my multi-challenge card using a v-e-r-y old original Bingo card and vintage wooden Bingo markers, all circa 1950:

The striped background paper I used is a digital file and the arrow was cut using a die. For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the heart-pounding product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooo, Sheila's certifiably insane wacky sister, Jill, stopped over yesterday to say hello.

"So, what did you do last night?" Jill asked.

"Me? I'm married ... I stayed home."

"Oh, well, that's nice. Know what I did?"

"I'm almost afraid to ask." I replied.

"I went to the thirtieth reunion of my preschool class. And I'll be honest, Deb, I really didn't want to go, because I've put on like a hundred pounds."

Thanks so much for spending part of your very busy day with me!

~Hugs,

Hi Deb,
I LOVE your bingo card! My girlfriend and I relax by playing bingo and your card just sent all kind of "bells n' whistles" off in my head. If you don't mind, I would love to case your card to make a BD card for her next month.
Take care and thanks for sharing and the inspiration!
