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: Ryder Cole by KennyK

I'm thrilled to participate in this week's Sweet Stampin' "Fancy Folds" challenge as a guest designer.  I'm so lucky to be invited to submit another project to be displayed along with the Sweet Stampin' team projects.  Thanks to Tracey and the rest of the Sweet Stampin' design team for including me!  (You can find out more about this Iva Nova Chest AND The Ribbon Girl sponsored challenge and the wonderfully talented Sweet Stampin' design team here.)

Meet Ryder Cole.  He's one of the few really cool KennyK images that you can get as a digi from KennyK's online shop here or as a rubberstamp from Whimsy Stamps here.  Ryder Cole is a great image to have on hand to meet those awkward teenage boy events like birthdays, thinking of you or congrats for a great job done.

This photo shows my completed card front where I've used this great teenage boy image.  Spellbinders Labels Four (with Grands Labels Four) die cuts shape my image.  Bazzill cardstock is layered with Rusty Pickle's Lizzie's Cats spotted paper.  A border is made using McGill's single star punch and a bit of Michael's 1/8" Textured Trios striped ribbon.  A Jillibean Soup Beanstalks twine is tied in an upper corner.  A few QuicKutz Revolution Flourishes are scattered about while a single handmade flower, lightly painted with Diamond Stickles, (Punch Bunch 5-petal flower, small cosmos and birch leaf) sits in the lower right corner. 

I prepared a "Happy Fall" tag to adhere to the front (Get it?  Wishing a skateboarder a Happy Fall!?!? LOL!!!) .  I decided to hang on to the piece to use if I give the card to a young man who won't be hurt by it.  LOL!!!  Teenagers can be sooo temperamental . . . 
And here's the inside of my card showing Karen Foster Design's Fall Foliage patterned paper.  I left the sentiment area blank because I'm really not sure how I'll use this card at this time.

This view shows my Flip Z card, open and ready for display . . . This pic doesn't show the remaining empty space left as the image flips to the front.  This post of my Flip Z card shows the space much better (here).

This is such a stunning masculine card Rose. Ryder Cole looks so cool posing with his skateboard and all those gorgeous colour inside as well as on the front of your card. I actually see this as a Congratulations card for a young man's achievement bacause Ryder Cole does look p;eased with himself and his achievement would be rewarded by the work and talent you have put into this card. I think we must have a similar sense of humour as I was chuckling about the play on words as you were talking about Fall colours but you are right, probably not the most sensitive sentiment for a teenage skateboarder :-) Good luck in our challenge this week.
