We had so much fun at our Fiesta Bingo on June 23rd with lots of food and fun guests. Above is what the tables looked like before the guests arrived. The second picture shows all the prizes and then we also had a bunch of door prizes so everyone went home with a prize plus their swag bag full of a stamp set and all kinds of goodies.
The grand prize for black out was the New Numbers Set and the thinlits. I was also celebrating my 20th Anniversary with Stampin' Up! so I stamped on the bags with a stamp set that I used in my beginning. Some of them I used DSP with a design and others I embossed some card stock and added an image. I also added some lights and decorations throughout the room.
Everyone was chatting and enjoying their Fiesta dinner of Indian Fry Bread and lots and lots of goodies that guests shared. They were ready to go at 6:00. We played until a little after 8 and then they could make 2 make and takes or take them home and finish them as they had all the supplies in their bags.
Several of the winners either winning door prizes or Bingo Prizes! Everyone has a big smile!!! Shannon was the first winner and then she went home and signed up to be a demonstrator. Phyllis and Ellen are below in pictures

Jan is also a great supporter of monthly Bingo. She also shares good treats!
Kay is one of the big reasons we have monthly Bingo. This will be our last monthly Bingo until fall and she says she just loves to play Bingo. You can tell she does as she has a handful of prizes. She also brings great treats! She was also one of the winners for Black Out and got a variety of prizes.

We had so much fun at the afternoon Bingo! Lots of stamping friends were here. We enjoyed a bowl of stew and veggies and a little sweet treat! The girls are always so happy and positive and cheering everyone else on . We usually play 7 games of regular Bingo and 1 game of Black Out. This time we had a few prizes left so we played a couple of extra games. Guess what? Phyllis won 5 times but she did share some of her prizes. Talk about luck!!! She should have gone to Deadwood when she was done but they all got home safely the way it was!!! Here Phyllis is with 2 of her prizes.
The second picture is Ellen winning the grand Black Out prize-she could choose between a Big Shot, Blocks and the Magnetic Board with the Hamburger Die and she already had the Big Shot and Blocks so took the Magnetic Board with the Die!
Marcia, Jeannie and Joan each getting a prize for not winning a Bingo Prize! No one goes home without a prize at our Bingo!
Becky won again for Nancy R. Nancy was unable to participate so Becky played for her and she won twice! Actually sticking out her tongue at Phyllis as someone else finally won!!!
Phyllis let Jeannie choose a prize so it was the Gift Bag Punch Board and a second item. Below Becky wins another prize for Nancy which was the Botanical Blooms DSP, Vellum and Washi Tape! Becky never won a prize for herself but 2 for Nancy!
Bingo. This is the 4th time we have played and the last 2 times I divided the group into evening and afternoon so actually I have done this 6 times. The first time I played we had 13 players, the next time it was 27 so between getting larger and everyone's work schedule I have been holding 2 sessions each time I have it. I have Bingo around SAB time, the release of the Idea Book and the Holiday Catalog and try to work my Swag Bag, prizes and Make and Takes around the timely catalogs.
We started the evening out with chili, veggies, and a sweet snack and then they opened their Swag Bags of a stamp set "Suite Sayings" and 12 sheets of 6 x 6 DSP. Then the fun begins.
Above I have a choice of prizes for the Black Out game. This time they could choose among the Big Shot, All the Blocks, Large Scissors and Trimmer, and the Botanical Gardens stamp set, framelit and vellum paper, or the magnetic board and the hamburger box die.
We made these 2 cards from 1 sheet of 6 x 6 DSP using the Suite Sayings set. The first card is just used with the notecards and envelopes that we sell for 6.00 #131527. We cut a 5 x 3.25 piece of DSP and then used the rest of the DSp for the banner. Punched out a white piece of paper and added the saying.
