Safari Thanks

Hi everyone! I've been busy, busy, busy with other stuff, but I did set aside a little time to make a card to share with y'all. I started by stamping Stampendous Changito Safari and coloring with Prismacolors and Gamsol. Next I sketched a frame and matted on Real Red cardstock. The patterned paper is another scrap from the new Basic Grey Infuse paper pad. I stamped the Stampin' Up Paisley background on Always Artichoke in Always Artichoke and made a 4.25" square card base and rounded the corners. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I used my Provocraft mini scallop scissors for the mat around it. The dots and dashes were made with a white gel pen and I finished off with a little Cranberry Crisp stitched ribbon.

Bingo Rules Refresher:
For those of you just finding out about Bingo, here's the skinny....

Email me to request your official Blogger bingo card. Each player gets their own unique card. Each morning I will call one number as a daily pick and one number for each card that was submitted (by email or a link in the comments) the day before using Bingo Sketch 1, Bingo Sketch 2 or any layout from a card I have posted since June 20. We are currently on Round 4 and are playing until someone either gets an X or a Blackout. If you think you have one of these, email me or comment on a post to claim your bingo and please include the last number you filled in on your card. The prize for this round is a Memory Box Spring Flowers acrylic set. The rules and details on how a tie will be broken can be found in the original bingo rules post. All of the called numbers for the current round can be found on the Master Bingo List. After I post a winner for Round 4, we will begin Round 5 the next morning. At that time, we will clear our bingo cards and start fresh, so be sure to keep a clean copy of your card in a safe place.


  1. Oh, I love this card and will probably give this layout a try. NO bingo yet for me, but still trying. This is great fun, thanks.

  2. I just love those mini scallops of yours Julee!
    This card LO is great, and would make a nice holiday card with a different image stamp, don'tcha think?
    You are a good doodler too.

    I spaced and forgot to link to my post with a sketch challenge yesterday, so here it is now.

    This card is adorable! I love all the doodles!

    Bingo has been a blast. I have very few numbers this round and we're leaving town tomorrow which means no internet access until next Monday so hopefully I'll be back for round 5.
