Yardleys Lavender

Where has this week gone ? I just don't know where the time goes , again very little crafting done and its partly  due to the old brain not giving me a lot of inspiration again but also due to me feeling extremely tired once again, even went to bed at 10pm one night and believe me that is very,very early for me !  Anyhow enough moans-  onto my card....... Its my cousins 80th birthday next week and her daughter has planned a surprise party for her tomorrow night, thats her on the little circle, such a cutie and still a lovely lady. I needed to get her a little gift and her daughter suggested Yardleys lavender products as one of her favourites, they are hard to find nowadays but I did track some down, while looking on line I found the old Yardleys Advert on their site so based my card round it, she worked for some years in a chemists shop, can't remember if it was Boots but as we are from the Boot family the Inkylicious Boots stamp also seemed appropriate, layers of papers and ribbons, a flower and button and a bit of one of my fave trims along the bottom. hope she likes it.  Saturday I am off to Port Sunlight Happy Stampers festival - yeah !!!! can't wait.......

Try It On Tuesday - Lots of layers
Make It Monday - Anything goes


  1. A really beautiful card Joan, I love the images and that cute photo of your cousin.
    Hope you feel more like yourself soon.

  2. Hi Joan, your card is beautiful and so thoughtful of you to use the Yardleys advert, that is perfect, I think she will be very touched indeed. Sorry to hear you have been feeling tired, I think sometimes Autumn does that (and no summer either!). Have tickets for Port Sunlight but not quite up to going, hope you have a wonderful time though. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  6. Wish my lack of inspiration gave me the ideas to come up with a card like this one. It is beautiful and will be much loved I am sure.
    Hugs, neet xx
