Sing Bingo, Bingo, Bingo, and Bingo is where I have been!!

Can you hear me singing??  B-I-N-G-O
Yep!  Last night was the purse bingo to benefit the Perry Hall Band Boosters who support the various curricular and extracurricular bands at the high school -  my son is a percussionist!!!  Anyway, last night was our big event and it seemed to go very well!!  We are happy!  There were lots of great prizes and three of the ladies at my two tables (thank you for coming ladies!!) won prizes!  Woo hoo!  My job was to sell the "special bingo" boards and I sold tons!! 
My friend Margaret won the Margaretta bag from one of the special bingos - how appropriate - heck it had her name on it!!  Bring on the booze and we are good to go!!  Actually I don't drink much, but I do enjoy drinking my iced tea from fun glasses!!  Abby won a door prize (a cute little dittie bag with a coupon for a free pizza) and Shelly won a prize - Opps! I forgot what she won!!
Before the event I was busy stamping little treats for the the ladies (and one man ) to say thanks for coming.

Our next big event is next Saturday when we will be running the food table at a local Little League opening event.  Hope the weather is nice!!  Anyway, between all these activities and my secret preparations for the stampin blog tour I am participating in at the end of the month, I have not done much stampin that I can show you  ... yet!!

Hope by now you have heard that there are big changes on the horizon for Stampin Up!  After many years with our four color families, Stampin' Up! has done a renovation for the 2010-2011 catalog which will be out in July.  We will be saying "happy retirement" to these colors:
Retiring colors from the Bold Brights include:  Brilliant Blue, Gable Green, Glorious Green, Green Galore, Lovely Lilac, Only Orange, Orchid Opulence, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, and Yo yo Yellow.
Retiring Colors from the Rich Regals include:  Ballet Blue, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Handsome Hunter, and Taken with Teal.
Retiring Colors from the Earth Elements include:  Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa,  Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Ruby Red and Summer Sun.
Retiring Colors from the Soft Subtles include: Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom, Lavender Lace, Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, and  Sage Shadow
From the Neutrals, we will retire Basic Brown and Going Gray.

Wait til you see the trendy new colors that will be added to our "collections" (that is the new name for the color groups!!)!  Some of them are colors you have seen before from our "In color" selections of past years and some are brand new!!  Also, when we get a set of new "In colors" they will remain in the collection for two years, not just one.   Each year, 5 new colors will be added to the "In Colors" so by the 2011-2012 catalog there will be 10 "In colors" at a time.  This is going to be great!!   Don't panic!  Change is good!

But for now, you need to check your supply and see if any of the retiring colors are your favorites because NOW is the time to stock up on your cardstock, reinkers, ribbons and accessories of those colors - don't run the chance of being caught without your favorite supplies!!.
As always, the best two ways to get your Stampin' Up! stamps and supplies is by hostessing a party and earning them free or by joining me as a demo (business or hobby) and get at least 20% off all your Stampin' Up! purchases.  Let's chat!!!!
