Sushi Dolls #2

Hello, sweet friends!
Before I get into sharing about the project I have for you today, I really need to thank you all for the super sweet comments you've been leaving me! I appreciate your love and encouragement so much! :o)
I also have a little note about my last post, and most recent Scripture Challenge page. I totally forgot to mention that the words to the song were typed out on a "new to me" vintage manual typewriter that I received from my soon-to-be SIL. It's fabulous! However, I'm so spoiled with my soft-touch laptop keyboard that I'm going to have to really work on building up some finger muscles before I can pound those keys properly! lol One note to those who actually did read the hymn words...I found out AFTER typing the first verse that the apostrophe didn't work. Then for the rest of the song I actually left a space so I could add the apostrophe by hand. Of course I forgot to do that before I took the photo! lol No, you don't need to go and inspect it now...I just needed to point that out to those of you who thought I didn't know how to spell! haha

Okay...on to today's project. I have a new card for you using another Sushi Doll digi! This one is called "Ryan and Susi" and it's one of the January New Releases. You can find it HERE, along with all the other sweet images. Isn't it cute? The digi comes with an empty heart so you can fill it with anything you want. I think that makes it a very versatile image. I've decorated it all up for Valentine's Day this time, and I've used a Simon Says Stamp sentiment. The flowers were just fussy cut out of one of the papers and layered up with a brad. When I showed this card to my husband, the sweet guy asked me if he could buy it FROM me to give TO me for Valentine's! lol What a romantic! Wait until he hears the price! ;o)
Take a peek at some of the cards the other girls from the Sushi Dolls Design Team have made. You'll find all of their links in my sidebar. Then head over to Sushi Dolls and pick some up for yourself. They're super fun to color! February's release is available on the 1st, so watch for some more projects coming up soon! Happy days to you all! :o)
