Really Reasonable Ribbon January 2017 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon January Blog HopI am so lucky that I get to continue as the monthly guest for the RRR Monthly Blog Hops! I am here with the first hop of 2017! You should be coming to my blog from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.) After visiting me, hop over to the spectacular Ginny's Blog next! 

Here is a peeky at the RRR January Ribbon Club Assortment. This assortment is called Sweetheart Mix, perfect for all those Valentine's Day cards you plan to make!
There is just something so wonderful about red and white. It is one of my favorite color combinations!
I had some red and white papers on my desk from a project I made earlier in the week, so I just kept on using it! Every time I buy a 6x6 pad, I use a few sheets and then the pad goes in a bin and I never look at it again...well, I may look at it months or years after purchase! You know what I mean. Anyway, it made me happy to use MORE of this pretty paper!

The card is a standard A2 with lots of prints and layers! My favorite part is that fluffy, white bow! 
I found a few $1 bin stamps in my stash, so I used one on this card. I have no memory of actually buying this stamp! Maybe it was in one of my DT boxes. Hard to say. I added some other do-dads to complement the Red Satin with Grosgrain Edge ribbon and the White Taffeta ribbon.
I had some fun digging through my bins of do-dads. Now that I have reorganized everything I can see what I have! Finding the wood heart, the red bingo tile, and the gobs of sequins...happy day! But, my heart beats the loudest for that white bow! {wink}

Thanks for stopping by today! Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog to see what she has for you!
