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: Whimsy Stamps Touched by Love by Crissy Armstrong

Whimsy Stamps carries a wonderful line of rubberstamp and digital images designed by Crissy Armstrong.  I've used Touched by Love on a joy fold card to share Christmas wishes.  You can find this digital image here.

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

I've layered Simple Stories Generations patterned paper with Bazzill textured and Paper Co. Neutral Fashion smooth cardstock to create my joy fold card.  A Satin Sensations 5/8" Merlot satin ribbon provides an accent bow.  A Hot Off The Press clear Christmas Art sentiment supports my use of this image.  Other embellishments include a McGill pine branch punch and Punch Bunch holly leaves with KaiserCraft red pearls in place of berries.  ClassAPeels Victorian Borders Gold stickers adorn a corner on the front and inside of my card.
Here's a photo of my completed joy fold card showing my use of Whimsy Stamps' Touched by Love digital image as designed by Crissy Armstrong . . .

This pic shows how the card looks when open for a better view of the inside where I've used a Hero Arts sentiment.
