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: Lady of the Stars by Sara Burrier

Crafts and Me Stamps recently released this lovely digital image named Lady of the Stars designed by Sara Burrier.  This beautiful fairy is ready to wrap something or someone in her glorious garland of stars.

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

Karen Foster Design "Stars" patterned paper is layered with some Bazzill textured cardstock to form my card.  A bow of Satin Sensations antique gold ribbon holds a Cousin Symbolize Star charm.  A Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two supports my Stampin' Up! "Happiness Always" sentiment from the Happy Harmony set as stamped onto a QuicKutz oval.

Here's a view of my card front showing my use of Sara Burrier's Lady of the Stars . . .
