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: Kenny K's Madison Attitude

This energetic young lady is hurrying to show off her favorite finds from her recent shopping adventure.  She is a rubberstamp image, named Madison Attitude, designed by Kenny Kiernan for Whimsy Stamps.  You can get your own Madison Attitude at the Whimsy Stamps online shop here.

This photo shows my Copic-filled image all ready for a birthday party.  Flower Soft Black covers the trim around the collar and sleeves of her jacket.  Bits of tissue paper peek from the openings of her shopping bags.

Bo Bunny's double dots embossed paper, layered with white Bazzill Bling and Reminisce Northern Exposure snowflake patterned paper, forms my side open card.   A strip of 1/8" Offray blue ribbon provides a border and triple bow.  A Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangle frames my image.  A Creative Charms beaded flower clusters with a Prima Raja Sequin flower and a Me and My Big Ideas icons mini rhinestone flower.  The stamped sentiment is from Stamps by Judith.  Prima Say It In Crystals black rhinestone swirls add movement around my image.
This photo shows the front of my monochromatic birthday card, displaying Kenny K's Madison Attitude . . .

The inside is decorated to match the front.  I've added birthday party sentiments from a Close To My Heart Everyday Celebration set.

 If I enclose a gift card or cash, then I'll write something like " . . . but I couldn't find a thing for you!"
