Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!

I've just been over to the Corrosive Challenge Blog and Challenge #4 is 'Under the Sea'. So I thought I'd whip up a quick fun card with a baby fish on it, and as I was doing it Marmie (my Mum) reminded me of a song that one of her old friends used to sing to me when I was little with the words 'Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem chu'! She was asking me what it was called so we did a Google search and came up with this You Tube video.

Do any of you remember it? Now, the ONLY reason I am showing you this is so that you get why my post has the title it does. It's a bit of nostalgia for us, but you will think I'm totally insane if you actually take the trouble to watch it!! The young kids will love it though :o)

(Well, in my 'About Me' section I did warn you that I'm quirky!! In my defence it has got a 4.5 star rating, so it's not just me that's watched it lol)

This is a really quick card to make and could be used as a template for so many different designs...Think heart instead of fish, or shoes/handbags etc. etc. A quick change of papers and die cut and the world's your oyster! (sorry that was an awful pun). I'm in a mad mood today, sorry everyone!! I cut two strips of different card, layering one on top of the other. I cut out two circles in different colours and added the die cut fish. I then stuck on the tag and finished off by adding a few circles as bubbles (using the spots from my Quickutz Easter Egg cutter) and a gem for his eye.

Dies/punches: Sizzix 'Fish & Fish Bowl', Quickutz Easter Egg, small/medium circle punches
Paper: Cosmo Cricket 'Cogsmo: Bandwidth', 'Cogsmo: Links'
Tag: Express Yourself DIY cards (I love these tags, they are full of bling and you just stick them day I might make something similar of my day)
Gem: From my stash

By the way, do any of you know if it's ok just to add a You Tube video to your blog?? I'm guessing it is because you can just embed the code, but I don't want to be breaking any copyright laws!!!!

Following up from my last posting where I asked whether you have a cardmaking budget or not a couple of you have a budget, some just spend until they are broke and one is in a stamp club so the cost is spread monthly. At the moment I am in the middle category, but I'm guessing with a new house I might be entering a lot more 'Use It!' Challenges to use up my older stuff!!

Have a great Thursday!
