Why Rosie's Book?

While growing up, I had a dear friend, Renee, that lived next door and with whom I spent much of my childhood. We grew, in different directions, and went on our merry way. Many years later, I ran into her parents and they kindly reminded me of the laughs they still have over my book. “What book?” I wondered with a puzzled look. "I don't remember a book." Hardy laughter accompanied their response. At some time during our childhood, I tried to convince Renee about something that her parents didn’t agree with. I told her that proof of its truth could be found “in my book.” Naturally she went home and tried to convince her parents of the same thing but they weren’t falling for it. She needed an edge and told them emphatically, “It’s in Rosie’s book!” After they caught their breaths from reborn laughter, they let me know how “Rosie’s book” has been cited for many other things throughout the years. They’ve also mentioned that they’d like to see “Rosie’s book” one day. I can’t remember all of the things that I said were in “my book” but I’m sure my dear friend’s parents can recall much more than I ever knew about – LOL!!! So, here it is . . . my version of things you might find In Rosie’s Book . . .

Copic Creations Challenge: Warm Colors

The current Copic Creations Challenge involves using Copic's "warm" colors.  Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring this challenge and offering 7 Bugaboo Stamps' images as the prize to the random winner of this challenge.  Find out more about this challenge and sponsor here.

Warm colors are usually yellows, oranges, browns, yellowish-greens and orangish-reds.  A warm pink is a peachy pink (as compared to a purplish-pink).  A warm green is a yellowish-green (as compared to a bluish-green).

I've filled my Beach Tilda from Magnolia Stamps 2009 Lazy Summer Days collection with warm orange and yellowish-green tones.

My Longing Tilda image from the Magnolia 2010 Fairy Tale collection is filled with warm tones of yellow:

The "warm" tones of Best Creation's Surf's Up double-sided glitter paper with light and dark orange Bazzill card stock make a nice background for another Side-Step card (see my Side-Step card in cool tones here).

I used white cardstock to punch a few flowers and leaves using punch bunch small blossom, blossom corner and small birch.  I filled the punched shapes using coordinating Copic "warm" colors then coated them with Diamond Stickles.  A QuicKutz Accent die cut adds some swirly flair to these flower clusters.

Here's a side view of this Side-Step card showing my use of Copic's "warm" colors . . .

I absolutely LOVE your card! I showed it to my husband and he likes it too! I'm going to case it and do an Easter card with Tilda coming out of an egg. Thank you for the inspiration!
