Saturday was World Card Making Day. Some of my team members and I hosted a fun Bingo event - with stamping of course. We had 22 ladies come to play 5 games of Bingo.
We played 3 games of Bingo, then took a break to make our cards - two each of two designs. The cards were quick and easy to make. I didn't even give these ladies a chance to sit down - because I knew they would soon be moving on to the next table to finish up the cards!
We also had a table with lots of cards and a list of people who would be blessed by receiving a hand made card - some were nursing home residents and others were fighting cancer or other illnesses. We asked the ladies to take a minute or two to write a note to one of the people on the list.
After stamping we played two more games of bingo. Below are the first four winners with their prizes - fabulous Stampin' Up! products.
Our 5th game is always a "Jackpot" game where the prize is a Stampin' Up! gift certificate. We set aside $5 from each registration fee for the jackpot prize - plus we sell additional cards if anyone wants an extra chance to win. The jackpot on Saturday reached $140. And the winner was..............
Beverly - a first time stamper! She was a last minute addition - taking the place of someone who was unable to attend!
Beverly decided to use her gift certificate to purchase a 6 month Paper Pumpkin subscription - plus a few additional items! That was a great decision for a beginner stamper. Everything she needs to make awesome paper crafting projects will be delivered right to her doorstep!
