BINGO! Yeah, I said it!


I am completely facinated by old bingo cards and their many uses right now. So for you today is a scan of one of my many Vintage Bingo Cards and some altered bingo card inspiration from across the web...

1. Here we have this gorgeous altered bingo card from Sugar Lump Studios Photo Stream off Flickr


3. A bingo card garland by Vicki Chrisman off the Tattered Angels Website

4. This is one off the Prima site (it's an older post but the card is devine!)



5. from Gimini Angel Art off Flickr is this adorable little thing...

6. By Katie Watson off the Maya Road website is this adorable little house!
 
 How wonderful! Can I live there?

7. And I have a few bingo card creations I will be showing in the next week. If anybody has a ton of the same bingo card and wants to trade a few to have some variety, I have a few different styles I would be glad to trade.

Well I hope you have enjoyed my little walk down vintage bingo lane. Next time you see an old bingo game at a thrift store snag it up and get creative!

Happy Holidays!

I always buy them, and then never use them, but I love to see the transformations! You showed some really cute ones, especially that little cottage.
