Yesterday, I was foraging about in Poundworld when I uncovered these little Bingo boards!!

Smaller than the clipboards that I normally alter, I decided to buy three (of the 9 that were there!) and do something on a 'birthday' theme .

I went back to Poundworld today for the other 6! ;-)
So if you want to play bingo, in Newton Abbot..tough!;-)
And so..WIP...

Talking of 'Housey Housey'...I found this vintage ribbon on Etsy..

Cute isn't it?
I've no idea what to do with it so any ideas will be gratefully accepted!
Meanwhile, it's 'Eyes Down' and back to work ...
before I stop to watch Setanta and my footy team from 87 (Torquay in Devon) with a nice number 3 (cup of tea), hoping that they kick a garden gate (8 ) here : 86 (between the sticks)
However, the last time I watched them play, the two strikers played like 88!! LOL!! ;-)

You are very inspiring Sal and never run out of ideas! The clipboards are fab, I haven't had a good rummage in Poundland for ages, great for cardmaking stuff. The ribbon is lovely but too nice to use :)

Sal, you amaze me. I just don't have the vision to turn something so mundane into such lovely useable things.
