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.

For those of you who would like to get together and stamp or scrapbook? Me too! I wish I had the space to have a group over to craft, but I just don't have the space. Maybe you do, or know somewhere we could meet, let me know. It's always fun to craft with others.
