I'm back and I'm stamping!

Sorry for that long period of radio silence! I got moved, then got sick, so it's taken me a little bit longer than I expected to get settled and actually get back to stamping. My new stamping space is not totally together yet, but I am settled enough to get some ink on paper. Good thing, too, since this weekend was the mini VSN on Splitcoast. I couldn't miss that one! The challenges are open until Nov. 9, so there's plenty of time to play. You can find out all the details HERE.
I'll be sharing my cards throughout the week, with lots of new goodies to share, I hope.
This first card was for Kim's challenge to use scraps. None of this paper was a fresh sheet when I started; it was all in my scraps box. I organized the scraps just before my move and it has helped a lot. I have each color in its own file in a portable file box. The image and sentiment were a RAK from my sweet friend Patty - aren't they hilarious? I colored the image with SU markers to go with the scraps of Dots and Dashes designer paper. I also added some stickles for some bling.
Stamps: Starving Artist Stamps
Ink: Stazon black, SU markers
Paper: green galore, glorious green, orchid, tempting turquoise, Georgia Pacific, Dots and Dashes (retired SU)
Accessories: Corner rounder, ribbon scraps, Stickles
