Beach Blogger Bingo!





So, who's up for some fun & games this summer? It's time for a new card contest, but this time we're going to shake things up and get this party started bingo style!

Here's the skinny on Blogger Bingo...

Prizes: The first prize up for grabs is an Autumn Leaves Build-A-Flower acrylic stamp set. The prize for the next round will be announced after each win. There will be a minimum of 6 prizes (one for each type of Bingo, plus a random winner from all the entries for each sketch challenge). We will play the game in rounds. So for Round 1, we will play until the first person gets BINGO, T, H, X or Blackout. Then whatever type of Bingo they win with will be excluded from the next rounds. So Round 2 was a T, Round 3 an H, and Round 4 is currently for an X or Blackout.

Eligibility: You must email me with your first and last name to request your official Bingo card. I will then email each player a unique card that is assigned specifically to them, so that I can verify all winners. Only one card will be issued per person. Anyone can play, and you can join in the fun at any time. I do reserve the right to swap out the posted prizes for gift certificates if your shipping address is outside the US or Canada. Be sure to hang onto a clean copy of your card, because the game board resets each round.

Ways to Win:
Round 1: Be the first person to have a bingo. (5 consecutive spaces diagonal, across or down)
Round 2: Be the first to have a T (9 filled spaces forming a T going through the center square)
Round 3: Be the first to have an H (13 filled spaces forming an H going through the center square)
Be the first to have an X (9 filled spaces forming an X going through the center square) Be the first to have a Blackout (All spaces on the card ar filled)
Be randomly picked as a winner from all card contest entries.
You must email me or comment on a post stating that you are the first to have Bingo, T, X, H or Blackout, to claim your prize. All claims will be verified against my master list. The order the numbers are called/listed on each day's post is the order I will use to determine the winner if there is more than one claim. In the event there is still a tie, the winner will be the one with the highest total when their winning numbers are added together. Once someone has won in any given category, that category is no longer active and we will clear the Bingo cards (put all the numbers back in the pot) and start the game again until we have a winner in each category.

Bingo Calling:
I will call (post) a new number each day starting Wednesday June 20. I will also maintain a master post with all called numbers for the current round in case you get behind or start late. If you want to speed up the bingo calling, just enter a card in the contest. Make a card using the following official card sketch and post a link to it in the comments of this post. For every card entered, I will call a new bingo number. Depending on how long the game goes, I will post new challenges every few weeks.

I tried to keep the sketch fairly simple. No rules this time, just use the sketch as inspiration.

I made my card sample using the new PaperTrey sets I received yesterday. I stamped the star box from Text Boxed in Soft Sky on Whisper White and then matted on two Chocolate Chip Mega Scalloped Square punches pieced together. I then cut a 2.5" x 5.25" strip of Soft Sky and randomly stamped the two star images with the same color ink. I then cut a 2.5" x 4" strip of patterned paper from the Trends K & Company line. The sentiment and scalloped border are from the Faux Ribbon seta and are stamped in chocolate chip and measures 2" x 1". For the larger chocolate star I stamped the star box on Chocolate Chip and cut out the reverse of the image. I then stamped a star with Soft Sky, cut out and layered onto the Chocolate Chip star and added some Stardust Stickles. I am really loving Soft Sky - can't wait until I can get my hands on more of it!

Okay, so there you have it... who wants to play???

Chris Hauck said...

Finally I'm getting around to posting this. I really don't like it at all so I've been contemplating submitting it. But I didn't want everyone else to have to do all the work for the sake of me playing along in the bingo game.
