Lovin' Me Some Mill Street!

I just got Noel's Mill Street kit on Tuesday and couldn't wait to dive right in to this fabulous kit! Unfortunately, life seems to have gotten in the way of my creative time this week. So my time being so limited, I decided I could at least sneak a card in! The image is actually from a 12 x 12 piece of DP from Cosmo Cricket. I love it because it comes with a variety of images that you just cut out and plop onto a card! I did dress it up a bit with inks and some of the pretty papers in the kit. The leaves in the corner were Maya Road stamps. (Yes, they are in the kit too!) I stamped them in 3 colors and cut each of them out. I added a button, twine, and a pretty stick pin to the leaves. This soft, lush, velvety ribbon finished off the card!

These stamps are so detailed that even the "veins" of the leaves show up ridiculously well!


So it is Friday.......already! Geesh! I guess I blinked a bit too long! : ) I am glad though because tomorrow I get to hang out with my scrapbooking girls for a 12 hour crop to benefit breast cancer. I haven't seen my girl peeps in awhile and it will be nice to catch up! ( My loving hubby said it was ok to miss Sweetest Day.....cuz he said everyday with me is Sweetest Day! ok......a collective, "awwwwww" from all of you! LOL!
I hope to shut my mouth long enough to get at least a few pages done......I am bringing my Noel kits.......cuz I don't need to pack much else then!
Hope your weekend is fabulous!

This card is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous!! Love the vintage feel. Thanks for visiting and leaving such a sweet comment on my blog. I was looking through yours and seems like we have a little bit in common; I also have a 12 year old son, don't teach 5th grade, but have a 5th grader :0) I didn't minor, but majored in Zoology. I live about 5 miles West of Six Flags in Lake Villa. Funny isn't it?!
