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: Elisabeth Bell's Little Curls

I've had the pleasure of playing with this lovely Little Curls image that Elisabeth Bell made exclusively for Sweet Pea Stamps.  This Little Curls rubberstamp is just one of several super sweet Elisabeth Bell images available exclusively through Sweet Pea Stamps.  Crafts and Me Stamps sells many of the Sweet Pea Stamps line so don't forget to check over there for this special little lady.

This photo shows a close-up of my Copic-filled image.  I've added a mini butterfly punch, folded in half, to appear as though it's landed gracefully on her open toes.  A Stampin' Up! sentiment from the Carte Postale set adds a sweet greeting.

I've created my card using Bazzill textured cardstock in purple and pink with a layer of Doodlebug Design's baby girl plaid surrounded by faux stitching.  A Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur De Lis rectangle diecut frames my Copic-filled image.

Here's a view of my completed card showcasing this sweet Elisabeth Bell Little Curls rubberstamped image.  A ribbon bow and touch of Basic Grey Opaline designer half pearls is all the embellishment needed.
