Paper Playtime Ch#73: Anything Goes PLUS our DT Blog Hop!! :)

Welcome to the Paper Playtime Challenge "Anything Goes" and DT Blog Hop!!

If you're not familiar with the Paper Playtime Challenges yet, please be sure to pop on over there and check them out...  There is always a challenge on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month!! On the FIRST Monday it's always a DIE CUT CHALLENGE (you can use any die cutting machine for this one!!)...  And on the THIRD Monday it's always a SENTIMENTS CHALLENGE (ya just gotta have a sentiment for this one!!)...  If we're LUCKY enough to have a FIFTH Monday in the month, then we have an ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE -- This challenge lasts for ONE WEEK ONLY and features a Blog Hop JUST FOR FUN!!  Woot-woot!!  :)  Be sure to check out all of the details HERE!!  (You'll want to pay special attention to the special PRIZE from our sponsor, Sharon of Mee Mee's Creations!!  One participant who comments on each of the DT Blogs will win some BEAUTIFUL Prima Flowers!!)

Sooooo.....  Who's ready to HOP??? If you've hopped over from my talented Design Team Sister, Sherri, then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our FUN, then please go to the Paper Playtime Challenge Blog to start at the beginning...  I wouldn't want you to miss out on any of the CREATIVITY!!

For the hop today, I've created a special card that was FUN to create (and will hopefully be FUN to receive!!)...
This is a standard A2 sized card (4.25"x5.5").  I used my Creative Memories Corner Punch to round the corners of my card...  I also used my Copics to color this silly PiRAT digi stamp from Dustin Pike -- Each time I use my Copics, I get a little more excited about what I can do with them... I just can't believe how easy it is to get used to those Copics!!  Have you tried some yet???
The "you float my boat" sentiment is from K Andrew Designs "Splashtastic Summer" Stamp Art Set...  Not only do I love this sentiment for this digi stamp, but it also fits PERFECTLY with a little inspiration I had for this card....
Not too long ago, one of my favorite singer/song-writer duos created this fun little video right in their living room (okay, maybe it was their dining room -- for sure it was created in ONE room of their home...  I think that's pretty incredible considering the creativity of this video)...  I hope you'll take a moment to enjoy my current favorite song...  If you're like me, you'll watch it again and again until you're humming it in the car, singing it in the shower, and serenading the love of your life on a daily basis ;)

Awwww....  If you just watched that, I hope your heart is smiling like mine is!! Be sure to share it with someone else -- It's always an incredible feeling to let someone else know that if they were a boat, you'd wanna be the wind...  (and if you can't see the video above, or prefer to watch it on YouTube, please CLICK HERE)...  And, finally, a final peek at my Boat Card...  Inspired by the Boat Song...   For the one who floats my boat.  :)
Now that your time with me is done, you'll want to continue to my DT Sister, Sharon, who has a SUPER CREATIVE project for ya!!  And just in case you've missed anyone (or want to visit again), I've included all the links for everyone's projects below!!
