Bingo!

Friday night was Bingo night - Stampin' Up! style.  We started with a delicious dinner and fun conversation.
Here is special gift I made for the stampers who prepaid on time!  I wanted to show how much I appreciate everyone who made the commitment to support  my Stampin' Up!  business!  The "paint can" contained monogrammed note cards, sticky notes & pen,  ribbon, and chocolate, of course!
Everyone received one of these  adorable clips.   My team member and Bingo co-host,  Anna, made these using a retired Stampin' Up! die, brand new Designer Series Paper (Affectionately Yours) and jumbo paper clips from a big box store.
Below are the door prizes for the night.  All you had to do was show up and have your name selected to get your choice of one of these items.  People who prepaid on time had their name entered twice!  Hint,hint: it pays to prepay!
Here are the Bingo players concentrating on the game.
Nancy was the first winner.  If I remember correctly, she won the first game the last time we played Bingo! Maybe it was the extra FREE bingo card that won the game for her.  She received an extra card for prepaying by the deadline.  (Do you see a theme here?) This time we let our winners pick the prize they wanted, and Nancy picked the prize everyone had their eyes on -  all 5 ink pads in the new In Colors!
Our second game had two winners. We use random.org to choose the ultimate winner, which was Judy.  She picked the new In Color Stampin' Write markers and a package of 12x12 card stock.
 Diane picked a consolation prize from the door prizes - and chose a retired stamp set, "Best of Shelli."
After two games of Bingo. we took a break to stamp.  Everyone made their choice of two cards below, using the new In Colors ink, card stock, and ribbon.

Then, they made two of this cute card using the new stamp set, Pop of Paradise.
 Stampers concentrating on their work:
This is Margaret who is a friend and Stampin' Up! demonstrator who wanted to observe BINGO in preparation for hosting her first Bingo Stampin' Up! event on Sunday!
After our make and takes, we played three more games of Bingo.  Debbie won the Playful Palette designer series paper stack and the coordinating card stock.

Lisa won Flirty Flamingo card stock, stamp pad, ink refill, and ribbon.  This is sure to be the most popular of the new In Colors.
And our grand prize jack pot winner was Judy.  She was the first to cover her card, winning the $50 Stampin' Up! gift certificate - to choose her own prize(s) from the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! annual catalog.


Everyone was asking for the date of the next bingo night.........so I guess they had a good time!  I'm thinking that Birthday Bingo sounds like a fun way to celebrate my birthday in July.  I'll get working on that right away!  Hope to see more of you the next time.  More players = even more prizes and bigger jackpot!
