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 . . .

I've inked up my Sweet Pea Stamps Dance of Butterfly by Ching-Chou Kuik and stamped her onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock then filled this beautiful image using my Copic Fluorescent colors.

Are you ready?

You're not going to believe this . . .

It's awesome . . .

I can't believe I made it myself . . .

Here she is, glowing under a black light . . .

I know!  It makes you want to run out and get some of those Fluorescent colors, doesn't it?  There are only 8 of them, thankfully.  You can find out more about how much I love the Copic Fluorescent shades here, here and here.

This photo shows the full card front with the image framed in Offray 1/8" salmon ribbon.  A few Creative Impressions small tropical iridescent blossoms and leaves with gold mini brads are at two corners.  The sentiment is from Outlines Rubber Stamp Co.

Lights ON . . .
