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 Polka Dot Melody

Crafts and Me Stamps carries an exclusive line of sweet Melody stamps designed by Lemon Shortbread.  I've used Polka Dot Melody on a bright card that's full of warm wishes.  You can find this image as a rubberstamp here.

This photo shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image . . .

I've layered older Basic Grey June Bug Strawberry Cheesecake patterned paper with Bazzill cardstock.  An EK Success Paper Shaper Whale of a Punch Scallop Photo Corner acts as a base for a small handmade flower cluster formed from layered punched shapes.  A Hero Arts Stamp It Messages sentiment shares warm wishes.

Here's a photo of my completed card front showing my use of Polka Dot Melody . . .
