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: KennyK's Jet Setter

With the holidays on their way, many travelers are making arrangements so they can share special times with their families and friends.  With that in mind, I've opted to use KennyK's Jet Setter, complete with luggage, to share loving thoughts with my dear daughter who sadly won't be able to join us this year for our holiday celebrations.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  I've painted a light coating of Walnut Stain Distress Stickles over her coat to add some sparkling texture.

I layered Bo Bunny's A Gift of Love "Believe Peace" over black cardstock then used Memory Box' Grand Heart to create my double gatefold card with a heart window.

This view shows my card when fully opened so the heart windows show on each side . . . I've added an Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes clear stamp then tried to fill the stars with the brush tip of a Wink of Stella clear pen.  I'm unhappy with the uncontrollable blobs of sparkle that fell over my stars.

Prima's Tea Roses Sweet Teal and Heirloom Paper Leaves Willow are clustered with a Basic Grey's Fabric Yo Yos button flower and cotton flower with Michael's Celebrate It Sparkling 3/8" ribbon, Morex Corp's white 1/4" Organdy ribbon and Petite Stitch 1/8" ribbon to embellish the lower right of the front of my card.

This scanned view shows how the card front looks when the sides are closed and overlap . . .
