SOUPer Bowl Bingo - Stampin' Up! Style

Sunday was my 6th annual "SOUP"er Bowl party.  It was a fun filled afternoon that started with homemade soup for lunch.  This year we added the fun of BINGO.  We played 3 games of bingo then took a break to make 4 cards.  Then we played 3 more games of regular bingo before finishing up with the jackpot game

Here are the first three winners:

Or should I say the first TWO winners.  Diane won the first two games!  Her first prize was water color pencils, blender pens, water color paper, and a roll of ribbon.  Her second prize was a card kit and Fast Fuse adhesive.  Debbie picked a past paper pumpkin kit for her prize.  The kit makes little Valentine treats and inside the tote bag was a bag of M&Ms to fill the bags!

Here are some photos of busy stampers making their cards:

We had 19 people join us for the afternoon.  These are the cards everyone made:

Card 1

Card 2


Card 3


Card 4

We had a table set up for people who finished their cards early.  We encouraged everyone to write a note to someone who might appreciate a "thinking of you" card.  We will make sure these cards get delivered and I'm sure they will be greatly appreciated by everyone who receives one.

After everyone finished making their cards, we played three more games of  regular bingo.  Here are the winners with their prizes.

Elizabeth won a package of Pumpkin grid sheets , a collapsible trash bin, Wink of Stella, and a Fast Fuse adhesive.  Nanette won a Perpetual Birthday calendar, a set of birthday cards, and a #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp set. Cathy won the retired "Sweet Centers" stamp set, several boxes of treat cups, and three pages of printed ideas for using the stamp set.  Everything was stashed in a Paper Pumpkin bag for easy carrying.

And the grand prize winner of a $140 gift certificate for Stampin' Up! merchandise was Sarah:

It was a fun filled afternoon - and to top it off we collected $74 to donate to the church's food pantry!  If you were not able to attend this time - I hope you will try to join us for the next Bingo - Stampin' Up! style!

Woodland Embossing Folder Technique

This is a card that we made last fall in my stamp club classes.  (I'm trying to catch up on posting my past stamp club projects!) This was a card that my stamp club members really enjoyed making.  I even made a video to show how we made this card.  You may be surprised how easy it is to make.

Popcorn Snowmen

We had about 6 inches of snow on Saturday and - we are on our third day of no school here in Chesapeake Virginia!  Yes, that amount of snow just shuts down everything around here.  Only the main roads get cleared - and we just wait for it to melt off the neighborhood roads.  I thought I'd better share this short video I made of the Popcorn Snowmen I made for the children in my preschool class for Christmas - before everyone is sick of the snow.  (I may be too late!)

Please CLICK HERE to visit my online store.  There's a new catalog and it's that special time of year when you can earn FREE products with every $50 purchase.  Who doesn't love free?

While you are there please view my CALENDAR OF EVENTS and RSVP to join the fun!
