You Brighten My Day - A Sushi Doll Card For All of You!

Hello, my dear friends!

I am back! Did you notice I was away for Easter? I will be back around to visit you all very soon! :o)

  I was in desperate need of some craft therapy today, so I decided to play with a Sushi Doll that makes me smile. Those of you that visit my humble blog also make me smile, and this card is for each one of you because you brighten my day! :o)

This fun image is called "Loopy Girly" and you can find it over at Sushi DollsI had an entirely different plan for this card when I was colouring her but it evolved into this design as I started playing. 
It's very simple and doesn't really need any explanation!

Thank you all very much for continuing to stop by and leave such lovely encouragement! I appreciate you!

Papers: Studio Calico - Take Note Collection,
Recollections - Cardstock;

Is it ok that I think she is cute but that she freaks me out a little with her mis-matched eyes?!
I'm definitely not in 2 minds about the card though - it's fabulous and so cheerful :-)

So cute and very clever designing the way you used to paper to resemble the sun's rays.
