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: Whiff of Joy Confirmed Melinda

The current challenge over at Whiff of Joy Challenges is about combining Aqua, Pink and Cream.  Simon Says Stamp! is offering a very generous $25 gift certificate for use in their store.  Find out more about this challenge and their sponsor here.

I've inked up my 2010 Whiff of Joy "Confirmed Melinda" guardian angel by Elisabeth Bell and stamped her onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.

This photo shows a close up of my Copic filled image.  I've painted some Diamond Stickles over her wings.

I've used a word from the Tim Holtz' Stuff to Say set, added a charm clip and a My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Hattie "Happy" Bits and Pieces star charm.  I've used punches to create some coordinating shimmering flowers.  This photo shows a close up of the embellishment cluster.

I used my Distrezz-it-All for tearing the edges of Bazzill aqua, pink and ivory bling.  I've also added a distressed edge layer of KI Memories Posh Vineyard.  A Fiskars read between the vines Border punch adds flowers to one edge.

Here's a pic of the completed card front and my entry into the Whiff of Joy Challenges Aqua, Pink and Cream . . .
