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 Daffodil Springs

Crafts and Me Stamps carries a wonderful selection of amazing digital and rubber stamps that are perfect for sharing springtime and Easter wishes.

I've used this beautiful digital mermaid surrounded by gorgeous blooming daffodils named Daffodil Springs by Hannah Lynn on an Easter card.  You can get your own digital Daffodil Springs here.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  I've added Stardust Stickles over the daffodil petals and the butterfly in her hair.

I've layered Bazzill cardstock with Best Creation's A Walk in the Garden glitter paper.  A QuicKutz revolution scalloped corner, embossed with a QuicKutz revolution zebra goosebumps embossing folder, is popped up over the top corner of my image.  A Close To My Heart Say It In Style "Happy Easter" sentiment is popped up at the base of my image.  A Satin Sensations 5/8" Fuchsia ribbon bow lies near my sentiment.  Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles are scattered throughout a Marianne Designs Creatables Branch Garden die that I've altered slightly to fit.
This photo shows the front of my twisted easel card, displaying Crafts and Me Stamps Daffodil Springs digital image . . .

The inside base is decorated to coordinate with the front.  I've added a stamped sentiment from a Stampin' Up! Miracle of Spring set.  Another Marianne Designs Creatables Branch Garden die cut, sprinkled with Bitty Sparkles lies around my sentiment.

Here's a view of my completed twisted easel card open and ready for display . . .
