Monday and a little pretty ribbon

Hi there , welcome to my room where it is warm and cosy . Hi to new follower too . Hugs to you.
The weather outside is dreary and cold . As it had been all weekend . The only bright spot was on Saturday when two craft friends , Sandy and Fran came to pick up a Stampin'Up order and kindly invited me to join them on a visit to a craft shop . Will share what I bought,  in another posting .
But , this morning I am here to share with you the Make it Monday news .
There are some new,  extremely talented and inspiring  DT ladies on board. You will see/ meet  them on the challenge blog . I welcome each of them to this fun/easy going   group.
My card today ..
I am still rummaging /wading  through my box of cut offs , scraps and  " had for yonks" stash .
Whisper White for card base . 'You're Special ' journal card from Webster's pages is layered onto red card scrap . Paper unknown , flowers, Sage and gingham ribbon  from stash . Sentiment from SU .
