bingobella

Morning everyone! I hope you are having a super week...can you believe tomorrow is Friday? Yay! Double yay for a long weekend!

When I saw the CPS sketch for this week and that Stamping Bella was hosting it I knew I just had to pull out my newest Bella. I call her Bingobella but her real name is Bingodabbabella. See? My version is much easier to remember! LOL! Anyway, I like to make cards for Todd's grandmother just as a way of staying connected and she does love her bingo so this is perfect!

I have to say that I'm in love with this card simply because of it's monochromatic color scheme. I was thinking of putting another color in this card but the colors that match the best with Brocade Blue just didn't sound appealing for a Bella card so I stuck with Brocade Blue and White.

I can't wait to get this sent out to her! I hope Todd stops home this morning so he can write a little note to her inside so it can go out in the mail today!

I just have to tell you what a dork I am. I thought it would be nice to have a Memorial Day BBQ with some of ours friends. Apparently, I wasn't thinking when I sent out the e-vites because we now have over 40 adults and 30 children coming to the BBQ. I'm not in the lest worried about the food and such as everyone is going to bring a little something but I am worried that it will be too windy to be outside...I can't have 30 children running around my home. Yikes! It was suggested to me that a couple of the older children take the younger kids to the school a half block away to play. That is a great idea and I just need to dig out my walkie talkies so we have communication with them. Wish me luck everyone!

Anyway, I'm off to start my day! I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and I'll see ya tomorrow!
