My Tim Holtz Bingo folder finally got used, isn't it fun? I embossed it onto some white core paper so I could draw out the pattern with a bit of sanding and inking with Distress inks. Since the card looked a bit masculine, I went with black twine to finish it off.
On a complete aside...last weekend I went exploring Flea Markets in Buffalo and came across a stack of old Bingo cards. They were the old cardboard ones, with 2 boards per card. I snatched a whole stack thinking they would be cheap but when I asked about the price, they wanted .50 each for them. Yes, .50 is cheap but not when you have a stack of 20-30 in your hand! Don't ask me what I planned on doing with that many. I promptly put them down. Thing is...I really wanted some of them. I am not a good bargainer though so I walked away. An hour later I was finished walking the rest of the market and was still empty handed. Those bingo cards were nagging me so I went back and asked the owner of the Bingo cards if he'd take a buck for 4. He agreed and now I am the proud owner of 8 cards. I know! What a big spender I am, a whopping $2.00, ROTFL!! No earthly idea what I will do with them but I am so happy to have them, lol. Now I want to go to more flea markets to see what other useless items I can find for cheap.
