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 . . .

Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge: White On White

The Lovely Ladybugs over at the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge want to see your White On White projects.  Hop over to enter your project for a chance to win TWO stamps (or FOUR if you use a Ladybug Crafts image!). You can find out more about this challenge and the wonderfully talented Ladybugs here.

Ladybug Crafts Ink carries a sweet line of Floral Delight Too digital images featuring a whimsical variety of floral images.  I've used Jug and Vase Delight to create a side open card to send warm wishes to someone special.

As I wanted to keep my White On White card elements as the main focus, I used some of my lightest Copic colors to fill my image in a very simple way.  This view shows my Copic-filled image . . .

I had a lot of fun making my border as I wanted my White On White elements to be special even though they were lacking color or pattern.  I first used my Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Quick Borders Craft Punch with a Scallop Flower punch cassette.  Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles are centered in each punched flower.  A McGill 1/4" ribbon stitch hand punch provided slots for me to weave my Offray 1/4" grosgrain white ribbon and double bow.  Finally a ProvoCraft butterfly hand punch added a third layer to my border.

Layers of Bazzill Avalanche white textured cardstock form my card.  One matted layer is dry embossed using a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Lifestyle Crafts' Large Circles and Large Scalloped Circles shape my image.  A popped-up EK Success Whale of a Punch Photo Corner Scallop punch is lined with Heidi Swapp clear bling to decorate my upper corner.  Whimsy Stamps' The Good Life Tickets sentiment is die cut using their Ticket Die for sharing a warm sentiment.

Here's a view of my completed card front showcasing Ladybug Crafts Ink Floral Delight Too Jug and Vase Delight . . .
