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: Fall Masquerade Fairy by Caron Vinson

Caron Vinson is an amazing artist who creates wonderful fantasy art and Sweet Pea Stamps carries a line of Caron Vinson's fairies and mermaids in rubberstamps.  I've used one of Caron's masquerade fairies for an autumn-colored thank you card.

This photo shows a closer view of my Fall Masquerade Fairy.  I've painted Diamond Stickles over her wings for added sparkle.

I've adhered a faux stitched matting of Best Creations sparkling patterned paper to my card made from Bazzill brown cardstock.  Creative Memories oval cutters helped to form my image shape.  A couple of Sizzix circle die cuts shape the background.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

A few holographic leaf stickers by American Greetings help to add some autumn sparkle to my card.

Here's a view of my full card front showing my use of Caron Vinson's Fall Masquerade Fairy by Sweet Pea Stamps.
