Grateful Bunch by Stampin' Up!

When I first saw this set in the Occasions Catalog, I loved it, but then thought.    Do I really need another flower set?????    Anyone think the same thing?    Well, I started seeing some cards made with the set and coordinating punch on Pinterest and various Facebook groups that I am on and knew that I HAD to have it.

Like a lot of stamps I purchase, when they arrive, I ooh and aah over them and sit them aside and keep saving  samples I see made with them to my computer, but don't seem to get around to actually using the stamp set.   One of my goals is to USE what I BUY!    And one of the ways I am achieving that goal is to go to my downloads on my computer and bring up a few samples that I have saved and get the stamp set out and start to create, either copying completely or changing it a bit.   Then on Facebook, I created a group for a game, a bingo of sorts and I give the winner some of the cards I created.   The group is a closed group, but all you have to do is let me know either here in a comment or email me and we have to be friends of Facebook, then I can add you to the group.   It takes place every Thursday and starting this week it will be at 730p EST.   I will post that you can add your numbers and that is when all who are playing, enter their 5 numbers from 1 -75 in a comment under that post.  At 740pm, I will start calling numbers in a separate post and the numbers will appear in the comments below that first number.   When all 5 of your numbers have been called, you enter the word bingo under the last number and I stop the game.   Check the numbers and announce the winner.   The winner receives the prize that night.   Usually 2 new cards made with either a new stamp set or bundle from the latest catalog, or maybe a set or tool that I have in my possession that has been sitting unused....

Here is the prize from last week.  I used the Grateful Bunch and almost copied exactly one I had saved on my computer.   The other card uses the new Sunburst Die that I thought I didn't need!!!!! Then I started seeing projects and I have made a few cards with it already.

Let me know if you want to join in on the Facebook Bingo, so I can add you.
