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: Crafts and Me Stamps GPepper Tree

This lovely little mushroom fairy, licking her handsized jaw breaker candy, while she rests across a few mushroom tops, is called GPepper Tree.  She was designed by Sara Burrier and is sold exclusively through Crafts and Me Stamps.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled GPepper Tree . . .

In addition to my Bazzill textured and smooth cardstock, I layered just one half of the gorgeous Crafts and Me Stamps digital paper page 20 from the recently released Floral Fantasy pack.  (I used the other half of this sheet for one of my fairy houses here.)  Letterpress Large Ovals surround my image.  A sweet and simple Outlines Rubberstamps Happy Birthday sentiment is flagged over the large mushroom stem.  Prima Say It In Crystals in slip mixed pink surrounds my image without covering too much of the beautiful flowered background.

This view shows just the front of my card . . .

Similar products line the inside of my easel card.  A lovely saying from an older Stampin' Up! Elegant Greetings set covers the note area.

Here's a view of my completed easel card showing my use of Sara Burrier's GPepper Tree . . .
