BINGO no I mean TANGO!!!!

As many of you know, I work for a school, one of my responsibilities is to put in permits which is when the building is going to be open after the kids are dismissed. Sometimes we have parent involvement activities and one of them is Bingo. No money involved but prizes. So I put in my permit and the next day it gets rejected, so I call downtown to find out why and they say that it is a form of gambling (for years I put them in as Bingo so I was baffled). So now we call it "Game Night". About a month later I go to another schools fund raiser. This one is in a restaurant, but because it is Bingo and the new rules we can't yell out Bingo, so they changed the first two letters of the cards to spell out the word Tango and we played Tango all night. We start to yell Bingo and then say "No Tango" I must say we all had a great time.

Ok now on to my card, Sheila choose the theme this week, and I really loved the theme. So I must say great choice Sheila!!!! I decided to use Sunday's Child which you can find HERE. I thought she was perfect for this card. Looks like she just won right? Once again I used one of the postcards that I found on the esty shop Iralijma Shop this is the one that started it all. This was the first one I purchased and of course it fit perfectly into this weeks theme. They are digital down loads and you can find it HERE along with all her other postcards.

Here is the Bingo Card to Follow:

Here is a picture of the card:

The inside of the card:

My angle shot:

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE and the ribbon and charm from The Ribbon Girl which you can find HERE
