Eyes Down for a game of BINGO

Hello everyone. It's Annette here today to bring you this fortnight's challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges.  Thanks to everyone who entered our 'Designer Papers' challenge, and there were a whole lot of you with some fantastic creations.

This fortnight the theme is Eyes down for a game of bingo, and I've created the bingo board for you below.  Don't forget you can choose a strip of 3 running across, down, or diagonally across the grid, or, if you're feeling adventuous, you can even attempt a full house!!  The choice is yours, but don't forget to tell us what you've picked!

Here's the grid:
