Birthday Bingo!

Hello and Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your week
is turning out pretty good so far! :o) Mine is actually
going well! :o) I recently purchased a Fire Pit for my
backyard. I went to pick it up on Saturday and we had
a "Family Night" Sunday so we thought it would be fun
to use it! Unlike most of the country that is in the middle
of a heat wave..... We are not! Not that I mind of course! :o)
Because I live in a higher elevation our Summers aren't as hot as
most places and our Winters are colder and longer than most places...
Sooo It does get warm during the day but by 6pm it is cooler outside and
the Fire Pit is perfect for that! We recently seen those huge Campfire
Marshmallows.... I mean they are HUGE! So I got those for us to make
 smores with and boy were they YUMMY! It was a really nice evening
for all of us to sit outside and roast marshmallows and just enjoy each other's
company! Then yesterday I thought it would be fun to cook hot dogs out there
on the open flame.... It turned out pretty nice too! We do own a grill of course
but it was just kind of nice to just sit around a fire and cook a few hot dogs and
marshmallows... Now we probably won't do this every night, but it certainly
beats everyone sitting in front of a computer all night long! :o)
Anyway here's my very simple card for today! :o)


First I want to start by saying I actually designed this
card several months ago! I had started it back in
February and finally got around to finishing it...

 Bakers Twine - Red
Everything else Stampin' Up
I used "My Digital Studio" Program from Stampin' Up
to Make the Bingo and all the little images inside each square.
After resizing all the images I printed it out on Photo Paper...
added the Pear Pizazz Green Backing and used a scallop
border punch on the bottom... Added the Baker's Twine and tied
the Green Button in the Center where the free space would be.
Attached it to Designer paper and then to the pacific point CS.
And there ya go... A simple Birthday card for Anyone!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

  3. Love the colorful card. It's a real "spirit lifter". The weinies and marshmallows sound great. Unfortunately in southeast Texas it's way too hot.

  5. Marshmallows by the fire pit sounds so nice, but I could just leave one outside on my patio for about a minute with same results! We are having 100 degree days around here and already I'm tired of it! Doesn't bear well for August..uggh. I love this Bingo style card! The colors and graphics are just fabulous and your twine and button match perfectly...great touch!
