This week's challenge over at For Fun Challenges is to create something special for our birthday. We were given wonderful images by Michelle have a lot of inspiration for you from the DT.

I chose the mermaid for my inspiration this week.  I colored the digi using my handy dandy (ding) Bic Mark-it markers. That was a shout out to Blues Clues.  LOL!!!  I really love those things.  I tried to up my game and experiment with adding dimension with the markers.  Let me know what you think. The materials are listed under the picture.

This is so pretty, the design paper reminds me of water bubbles and is just perfect for the sweet mermaid.

Have a wonderful weekend.
