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: Sweet Pea Stamps Sunrise by Rachel Anderson

This very sweet rubberstamped image of a winged lady who rests on her pedestal surrounded by butterflies is named Sunrise and was designed by Rachel Anderson for Sweet Pea Stamps.

Here's a view of my Copic-filled image:

A bit of Bo Bunny's Gabrielle Collection in spots and stripes layers my Bazzill cardstock.  A Cheery Lynn Designs Heartland America Large doily die provides a loving touch while a Fiskars Treading Water punch adds a soft border.  The lovely sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection Stuff to Say.

Here's a view of my completed card front showcasing Rachel Anderson's Sunrise image . . .
