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 . . .

Card Art with Copics: Close To My Heart Bunny

I found this sweet image of a lady bunny happily delivering an Easter gift at a recent local ScrapStampArtTour show.  She's part of a Close To My Heart Sensational Season March 2011 Stamp of the Month set.

I filled her using Copic Spring colors.


I used a Fiskars read between the vines Border and Corner Punch at the card's open edge.  A Copic atyou Spica in Lilac makes some glimmering faux stitching for an image border.  A few Bazzill Basics walnut self-adhesive jewels adorn three corners while a simple thin ribbon bow adorns the other.

Here's a view of the completed card . . .


Copics used:
fur - E31, E35, E47, E93
dress - Y13, Y15, Y19
apron - V0000, V01, V04
gift bow - V04, V06, V09
gift box, grass - YG11, YG13, YG17
outline shadow - B00, B000, B0000
