Manga Girl

We are in the process of moving all of my stamp stuff to another room. I highly advise against this action!! It's very overwhelming seeing everything scattered all over the place. Plus it's alarming to see just how many supplies I have accumulated over the years. I decided to take a little break from organizing and make a card amongst the clutter!


This is for the Sugar Bowl Challenge #32. We were suppose to pick any sketch that has ever been issued since the challenge began. I decided to go with Challenge #8 which used one of Tiets fabulous sketches. I love her layouts - they are always made up of many layers! Perfect way to use up those little scraps from your favorite paper pack and make more room in your closet ;) Not only is this a great sketch, but it was the first ever Sugar Bowl Challenge that I ever participated in (here's my original card). I was in a playful mood today, so I pulled out this uber cute little Manga Girl from Sugar Nellie and made her very colorful. I added a few highlights with a Sharpie Poster-Paint pen and some pearls to her bows.

Talk about great T.V. this week! First 24 and Castle had huge cliffhangers, then I'm still trying to process what all went down in LOST and finally I was a bit surprised by what happened during Tribal Council on Survivor last night. Russell is such a weasel and I love it!! Hope you're having a wonderful week so far!!!

I always love the colors you pick, wow, beautiful Kim!! Wish I could come over and watch sometime! Ooohhh I can't stand that weasel ;) he drives me crazy...loving Rob, BUT his days are numbered unfortunately, ugh! Tyson deserved what he got, lol, but dang! Scott loves Castle too, he asked me to ask you what you think happened to Beckett? He thinks she dove back into the tub...I don't watch so have no idea, lol. Loved seeing Richard and his backstory...ack only a few episodes left!

Don't overdo the moving Kim. Will the old stamp room be the baby's new room? Can't wait to see pics of the nursery. Your card is adorable and that BG paper is one of my favorites! I love Castle (reminds me a little of Moonlighting).

Wow, this is stunning. I love the bright colours and your papers compliment each other beautifully. Good luck with processing the story on Lost - I'm afraid I gave up 1/2 way through Series 4!

Oh, Kim! Love this! So many different pattern papers! Wonderful! I haven't been able to see Survior in like two weeks. I forgot about the basketball stuff, and haven't seen it! Oh, thank you for the darling card in the mail this week! Came home to it! Thank you so much!
