Happy 4th of July


After spending 10 hours cleaning up my craft areas (yes, that's plural), I felt the need to sit down and actually create something.  So I pulled out my Artistic Outpost patriotic stamps (Hero set) and went about altering this vintage Bingo card.
Good story about the Bingo card.    When I was down in Alabama with Sarah, Pam & Lori we were out junking and came upon a town rummage sale.  I happened upon a box of these Bingo cards (there are some in black as well).  They were marked "Free."  I doubled checked with the woman whose booth it was and she replied, "Yes, they're free.  Can't imagine what anybody would want with them."
Happily, there was more than enough to share with everyone!

Wonderful job with that FREE Bingo card! And, thank you, for using so many Artistic Outpost stamps that I finally broke down and went shopping there. Spent part of my day cutting them out and stamping them in my book of unmounted images. I have so many ideas to use the stamps (have used 2 already) I got. Really do appreciate you and your "influence", Louise.
