I heard on the radio the other week that sniffing rosemary (the herb, not a person) improves the memory.  I guess that is ok, so long as you remember to do it.
I could do with something stronger than rosemary at the moment.  I am forgetting all sorts of things, some of them reasonably important, and the more I forget, the more stressed I get about forgetting, and the more stressed I become, the more I forget.  And so it goes.
One of the things that I have been forgetting a lot, despite having all the dates written down, is birthdays.  So this card will no doubt be used before too much longer.

This is "Huh?" from CC Designs Roberto's Amigas
Skin and hair in Polychromos pencils, the rest in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are from the new LOTV/Nitwits pad "Up And Away" except for the
pink matting layer - can't remember which pad that's from, but it is LOTV too
Sentiments are Personal Impressions and Paper Smooches
Corner dies are Cheery Lynn
Right then, where's the rosemary......
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

I have a colleague called Rosemary, but I'm not sure she'd appreciate me sniffing her. Oh, the herb, yes I have some of that too in the garden, will have to give that a try myself methinks. I'm still having parcels turn up that I'd forgotten I'd ordered! Love this image, her face is so full of expression and it's perfect for the sentiment. The papers are so pretty.

I clearly need some rosemary as well, my memory is terrible...as you well know!

This design is fabulous, great colours and I love all the layered oval shapes and how you used the corner dies - brilliant!

Right, I'm off to the garden for some of that rosemary...

Big hugs, Kat xx

The lady on your card--her eyes look a little glazed over. I can relate to that look and feeling. I'm still working on a bday card from May. Since it's already late it is low priority... like as in forgetaboutit priority. Great card though. You haven't forgotten any of your skill! There's a bonus. And sniffing rosemary... sound allergenic!
