Sushi Dolls #7

Happy weekend, my friends!
Well, I did mange to knock a couple of things off my list after all. This new Sushi Dolls project is one of them. This sweet image is called Suzy Q and is part of the new April release. Isn't she adorable?
It's been quite a while since I've decorated a tag, and I've loaded this one up with special treasures that I've been hoarding. Yes, I do have a problem with saving my special treasures but I'm working on trying to use them! I finally cut into my Crate Paper Portrait these papers! The charm, decorative pin, and lace were all gifts I received from sweet friends. I used a new Scripture stamp and cut the image into strips to apply to the heart. I've been on a flower making frenzy lately. These little blooms are the latest I've come up with. They're made using the Cuttlebug Quilled Flower die set. They're totally addicting to make! I dabbed them with my Snow Cap paint dabber to give them some added texture. You'll be seeing more of these flowers on future projects. I edged everything else with the paint dabber too.
That's it for today! You need to head over to see what else Susi has been drawing lately! I've also seen a sneak peek of some upcoming releases and they are WONDERFUL!
Hope your weekend is full of JOY and LAUGHTER!!

This tag is super duper cute. I would like to think that it's not a very small tag as those details would be difficult to fit in a small space. Fantastic work. Love everything about it! Thanks a lot for blessing us with your wonderful project this week at Word Art Wednesday. Have a blessed day!
