How to make a Corrugated Trellis To make this trellis, take a piece of card board and strip away the outer paper on both sides so just the coragated paper is showing. (It can be a fussy job depending on the card board you are useing but it is worth it), then cut  into strips 
Sizes For Strips 1 @ 3" (Vertical center strip)

Freebie Sneak Peek...

Hello all you lovely ladies.  It's Lisa back again to get your interest piqued for this week's upcoming freebie.

I'm dipping into the store again and this week am grabbing an image that was doing a LOT of complaining.  It insisted that I snag it and present it to all of you.  Sheesh, there were tears and everything!  It is possible that some of you may have picked this up as a freebie in the past but at least for those of you who are newer followers, this one will be brand new.

Now I double dare you to figure this one out!  Same rules as last time.  For anyone who leaves a comment with the correct guess, I'll send you a free paper.  Of course, you will have to wait until Tuesday to know if you were correct.

So make sure you come back in three days so you can pick up another of Naomi's sweet images as a freebie.  I'll provide another update on Naomi's situation at that time if one is available.

Until then,

on behalf of

On your Wedding Day

Hello! I am thrilled I am able to drop in and show you another project I did a while back my peeps! I used  Spellbinders "Fleur de Lis Squares" die cut for both the silver card and the main image. The main image was a used card that I had saved from another occasion so yes  a little recycling going on here! The sentiment is from Jaded Blossoms, "Wedding Wishes" and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
I also got creative with the box adding a hatpin that I bought from Christina's new shop over at "Flowers Ribbons and Pearls" I hope you all have a fantastic day and thank you for keeping me in your prayers, I am leaving with Michael on the 22nd of May to go off Island for his Sedated MRI so I need to be at my best. The set back Lisa was referring to yesterday was upon awakening I am unable to see normally out of my right eye, all I see is a grey mist or clouds, something like that but it does go away. I seen the doctor and we have to let it play ou…

Freebie - "Mortimer"

Hello everyone.  It is Lisa here to provide you with this week's freebie.  If you missed the post I created to explain my presence (you can find it HERE), but in short, I'm just here to help Naomi out a bit until she gets back on her feet by providing all her loyal readers with weekly freebies.  It was a rather rough day for Naomi today and a step back I'm afraid so please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.  I know that the cards she saw and will continue to receive in the mail over the next couple weeks will certainly help to lift her spirits.

This week we have "Mortimer". Mortimer is a longtime resident of the store and was just itching to make an appearance.  So without further ado, I present your freebie of the week...

To get this week's freebie, just left click on the image to bring it up in its full size, then right click and choose 'save as'.Update:  This image is no longer available for free.  You can now find Mortimer in th…

We Love You Naomi!

As you all know, our wonderful Naomi has been battling with a seriously bad flare up of her medical condition.  Roughly two weeks ago, I put out a call for people to send me images of cards so that I could do a special post, showing Naomi just how much all her peeps love her.

Well the result has been great! Within the first five hours that the call went out, I already had one card image delivered to my inbox and another inquiry.  From there, the cards kept appearing all the way up until very early this morning.

So let the parade of cards letting Naomi know how we feel, begin now...
