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 Crafts and Me Stamps Silhouette Fairy Friends

Crafts and Me Stamps carries a fabulous selection of amazing digital silhouette fairy stamps.  When you're in a hurry and don't have time to add your own coloring, silhouette images can be the perfect addition to your projects.

I've used Fairy Friends to whip up a simple note card that will be handy for sharing a bit of news or sending caring thoughts to a good friend.  You can get your own digital Fairy Friends here.

You'll note that all of the digital silhouette images are made to print in black ink.  In eight simple steps, I changed my digital image to print in purple and gray in my attempts to better match my card.  You can find the steps I used at the end of this previous post.

This photo shows my purple and gray-filled silhouette image printed on white cardstock.

I've layered Bazzill cardstock with patterned papers from a Memory Box Viola 6x6 paper stack.  My image is shaped and matted with Lifestyle Crafts Large Ovals die cuts.  The front and inside of my card show sentiments from a Heartfelt Creations' Inspire Me Sentiments set.  A Hero Arts Card Buttons Summer purple button, tied with a small bit of My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally "Celebrate" twine is in the center of an Offray 1/4" triple ribbon bow.
This photo shows the front of my side open card, displaying Crafts and Me Stamps Silhouette Fairy Friends digital image . . .

The inside is decorated similar to the front.
