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 . . .

I've had the pleasure of working with Wild Flowers to create a lightly embellished thank you card.  This view shows my Copic-filled image . . .

A Whimsy Stamps' Everyday Honeycomb Sentiment shaped with their Honeycomb Die Set is popped over the upper right of my image.  A single silver bumble bee charm hangs from a jump ring below the sentiment.

I've machine-sewed a layer of rose patterned Authentique's 6x6 Bundle "Lovely" collection with Bazzill's Forest, Kisses red and Piglet pink cardstock.  A beautiful Whimsy Stamps Mini Lace Corner Doily 1 Die adds a delicate touch to the upper left corner of my image with a multi-layered 2 mm Flower Soft Baby Pink Pure Silk Ribbon bow.  A row of Heidi Swapp clear bling borders adds some bling below my image.

Here's a view of the completed front of my thank you card showcasing Ladybug Crafts Ink Wild Flowers image . . .

A strip of coordinating rose patterned paper lies below a Spellbinders Marvelous Squares-shaped writing area that includes white paper with softened rounded corners for a personalized handwritten message on the inside . . .
