Beautiful Day

 Good morning, I'm happy to say that I'm on time with this week's DT card for
  Crafty Catz Challenges.

This week is a just for fun challenge, no sponsor or prizes, out top 3 picks will still get a lovely badge for their blog.

Billie is our host for this week, she's picked 

  Watercolour Background 

as her optional twist- lovely! As you can see my background is very simple, I just sloshed on some blue and green watercolours and added a few splats. The mermaid , Krista Smith, is coloured with Copic markers, I matted the image onto a square of DP and stamped the sentiment. 

There's loads of wonderful inspiration from the rest of the team over at the challenge blog, so please do hop over and enjoy!

Thanks for visiting today, have a great weekend
