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 Jasmine

This sweet Kenny K image named Jasmine can be useful for nearly all occasions.  You can find Jasmine as a rubberstamp at the Whimsy Stamps online store here.

I've used Jasmine on an easel card to share happy wishes.  Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  A layer of Diamond Stickles adds shimmer to her shirt.

Layers of Bazzill cardstock with SEI Diane Fresh Linen double-sided patterned paper form my easel card and faux stitching adds a contrasting border.  A few Recollections black mini brads are lined in two corners.  A Morex Corp 1 3/8" white lace ribbon provides a grounding border.  A happiness sentiment from a Stampin' Up! Summer by the Sea set is stamped near my image.  Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish and Mini Fancy Flourish are layered with My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Blush "Sweet" Pearl Swirls.  Flower clusters are formed with Prima's Gillian Raspberry and Fairytale Roses Baby Pink with Petaloo Dazzlers Florettes in fuschia.

Here's a view of the front of my card showing how I've used Jasmine.
The base of my card includes a stamped sentiment from a Stampin' Up! For Father set, a strip of KaiserCraft Pink Champagne pearls and a Creative Charms pink netted butterfly.

Here's a view of my easel card, open and ready for display . . .

This card reminds me of a photograph. The image is colored so wonderfully that it doesn't look like you colored it, but that it is a photograph. BTW, that's a compliment. This is gorgeous. LOVE the colors, the fold is great and the inside of the card is beautiful, too. Thanks for joining us at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge this week! Hope to see you again soon. --Gail
