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 Sharlotta by Hannah Lynn

Crafts and Me Stamps carries a wonderful line of fantasy art images designed by Hannah Lynn.  I've used Sharlotta on a multi-layered card to share my gratitude.  You can find this image as a rubberstamp here.

This photo shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  The detail of this mermaid's tail shows an example of a fun Colorless Blender effect.

I've layered Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Collage patterned paper with Bazzill Bling pastel cardstock.  Spellbinders Labels Five shapes my image.  Creative Impressions black mini brads accent each corner.  Surrounding my image and Just Rite Spring Words sentiment, you'll find paper flowers handmade with layers of a variety of Punch Bunch punches. Each of my handmade, color-coordinated gerber daisies, asters, coneflower, chrysanthemum and blossoms are lightly painted with Diamond Stickles for amazing sparkle.
Here's a photo of my completed card front showing my use of Crafts and Me Stamps' Sharlotta image as designed by Hannah Lynn . . .
