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 . . .

Enchanting Card Set: Card - Crafts and Me Child of Healing

The Dynamite Digi team at Crafts and Me Challenges wants to see your Summertime projects. The lovely Teresa of Crafts and Me Stamps is offering SIX digi images to the winner of a randomly selected entry. Find out more about this challenge here.

I've added another all occasion card to my coordinated Enchanting Card Set.  This time I've used Crafts and Me Stamps' Child of Healing by artist Sara Burrier.

As this is one of a few cards that will be enclosed in my card set's folder found here, I've kept my embellishments very light.  Another all occasion card can be found here.

When completing a card set, consistency with the pieces of the set is very important. I've used a similar layout as well as the same colors, papers and embellishments to match my card set's folder and other card. Antique Gold Satin Ribbon knotted on the border, Bazzill Basics Walnut jewels at two corners and a negative mask formed from a Spellbinders scalloped oval for an airbrushed backround provide the simple consistency that makes this piece easily recognized as belonging to this card set.

This photo shows the completed card front for another card that is now part of my Enchanting Card Set using Crafts and Me digital images.

I'm entering this card at the following listed challenges:
