Let's Play Bingo!

Pin It


Happy Monday, crafty-stampers ... hope your weekend was long and wonderful!

Today's card was created for the current Our Craft Corner challenge, "Bingo!" The challenge calls for the use of a Bingo card and the color green ... bingo! For all of the challenging deets, and to see the amazing projects created by the OCC designers, clicky HERE.

This project also qualifies for a number of fabulous blog challenges ... please refer to the bottom of this post for the complete list. And for the down-low on all of the products used, please check out the Card Recipe, below.

The feather was added to this card after one of my sweet kitties brought it to me in my Craft Cave ... she's helpful like that ...

Soooooo, this weekend I caught up with Sheila helping Reid-the-Wild-Child with his homework.

"Alright, Reid, what is our nation's capital?"

Reid promptly replied, "Washington, DC."

"Very good! Now tell me, what does the 'DC' stand for?" Sheila asked.

"Dot com!"

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

~Hugs,

Annie said...

Hi Deb, Annie here. Love you card, in fact I have had a look at your blog and I just love your style. Now that I have got up to date with birthday cards I have been creating myself. I also feel a bit more competent blogging too, though I am still learning about linking pieces to challenges. Hope you are well and I had a good laugh re Dot Com. It was certainly a good answer. Hugs Annie x
