January Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop


Welcome! The January Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop starts at the RRR Blog!

You should be coming to my blog from Ginny's Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.)

Check out the RRR January Ribbon Club. Valentine's Day, here we come!


While you are feasting your eyes on this and hopping along, I am working at CHA. If you are at CHA, taking a break and surfing the web, stop by booth #2000 (CSW Distributors) in the morning or booth #1257 (Hampton Art) in the afternoon and do a make-n-take!

Here is a Valentine's Day card to get you in the mood for love.


I love pink and black together. So classy!


I used the pink satin and the white lace from the January Ribbon Club. I made a simple bow this time.


The image is a new one that I picked up at Michael's in the dollar bin! I found a handful of Valentine's stamps when I was there looking for something completely unrelated. {that always happens!}
 

Here is the inside. Another $1 stamp.

I also want to note that I used the sketch from Seize the Birthday, and then realized, duh, I was supposed to make a BIRTHDAY card, so I won't link it up, but you can still go over there and see the sketch!

I hope you enjoy the hop! Make sure to leave a comment! I love your comments!

Beautiful card Gloria. I love the way the lace looks layered on the wider pink ribbon. Pink/black is also a favorite color combo of mine.
