Happy Easter!!

Just a few hours left to enter my
Blogaversary Giveaway!!
Click HERE to enter!!

Happy Easter, everyone!! I hope you are having a blessed and happy day with your families!!

I'm home from my trip, albeit a bit injured. I was playing in the ocean with my niece and holding her hand while we jumped the waves (all day...I couldn't get her to leave!!). I didn't realize it at the time, but all that yanking on my arm tore something in my shoulder. It's incredibly painful and I can't even begin to lift it above my head. So, I'm one handed until it heals (hopefully without surgery). I hoped to catch up with all I've missed since I've been gone but that will be delayed a few days...I will stop by when I can. I wanted to get this posted so I wouldn't miss deadlines, but I will be short with the descriptions.

The bunny is from Noah's ABC Animals and I used paper from First Edition Spring Feast and cotton for the tail.

I used a plastic egg and covered it with all different flowers from Flower Shoppe, cut at 2".

The card base is a Spellbinders Label 4, embossed with the Plum Blossoms folder. The strip along the middle is a Spellbinders Lotus Borderabilities Petite, inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The lacy deign is a Spellbinders Lace Doily Accents. The top label is a Spellbinders 23, embossed with Plum Blossoms and inked with Spun Sugar. The quote is from K Andrew Designs Scripture Sayings stamp set:

Oh my Lisa ~ I hope that arm gets back in topshape.. poor thing...
love your projects, whew that's quite a bit of blooms on that egg yeah!...I'm glad you had a great time on your mini vacay inspite of your arm incident.....
Take care - good luck to the winner... woo hoo!

Unknown said...

Oh Lisa, I hope you didn't tear anything. I did that once and it took a full year to heal, my oldest daughter tore something in her shoulder and had to have surgery, but it healed pretty fast. Not a year, yeah!

You take care of yourself. Your bunny is adorable and the flower egg is beautiful!

I do hope you had a great vacation even though you got hurt. I will be praying hard for you.

I have a question for you, where do you get all of your spellbinders? It is wonderful to see you use them, I am seriously looking for a good deal on a grand calibur. I have some spellbinders, not near what you have, but always looking for more.

Once again sweetheart, take care of yourself.

Hugs, Pam


Praying for a quick recovery (without surgery). take it easy!! I love this, so creative covering the egg with those flowers!!

Ashley Nicole said...

I hope your shoulder gets better. Your creations are stunning, absolutely beautiful. I love the egg and the bunny is super cute and the card is so pretty. I need to use my Spellbinders more often.

Unknown said...

Diane Hodrick said...

Ouch, Lisa, you poor thing...that sounds so painful. I hope it is just a strain that will disappear with a couple of days of rest. Your bunny is adorable. That Noah cart has the cutest cuts on it. Your flower covered egg is a treasure. What a great idea. And, I adore the card you made. That sentiment is just beautiful. I hope you are feeling better soon, my friend. Take it easy and let someone pamper you for a few days.

Beate said...

Wow! Your egg is beautiful and so is your card. Love your die combo.

Lisa, I sure hope you heal quickly!! I have shoulder issues for over 10 years now and when it acts up I can't lift my arm up at all:( sadness... I hope you won't be inflicted with the pain I have had to endure:):)
Now onto your beautiful rabbit!!! I just love it and the Gorgeous Easter egg!!! And to think you did this with a bad arm!!

DIANA L. said...

Such an adorable bunny, but what an incredible egg. I love it Thank you for linking up to CCR. You could enter this in the DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY Challenge, also.

DIANA L. said...

I am definitely keeping you lifted in prayer. That is not a good thing. I hope you go see a DR. and get a referral fro physical therapy that happened to my neighbor and even after 6 months of PT she still can not lift her arm as high as be4, but without it, it would have been worse. Take care my friend. hugs Diana

Nita said...

Oh my goodness Lisa! This is AMAZING! That egg is gorgeous - I never would have thought of doing that. You are just so darn creative! Thanks for always being such a huge inspiration. :)

I hope your arm heals quickly!


Tonya said...

Becky Dunham said...

This is adorable Lisa! I LOVE that egg - so cute! I am so sorry to hear about your shoulder - praying for speedy healing and no surgery!

Susan said...

Ouch Lisa! No, I really mean ouch! I know exactly how you are feeling with the bad shoulder. When I had that calcific tendonitis episode in my shoulder it was one of the worst types of pain I have ever had. I am feeling for you, know that! I hope it isn't anything that requires surgery and the pain can be eased quickly. You don't realize just how valuable your shoulder is until you can't move it! Washing/fixing your hair, forget it. Even getting dressed hurts. Oh I feel so bad for you Lisa! Please don't put off getting it looked at. I know I'm limited here but if there is ANYTHING at all I can do to help you out you let me know. I'll even send Shadow and Kiki to you if it would help you feel better! They cuddle really good!. ;)

Other than getting your arm torn off by kin, jumping around in the ocean sounds fun. I bet you have a nice base tan going! (Trying to keep you positive Your project is just darling, I love that egg, it's really cool! You take it easy Lisa, don't push it with that shoulder. I'll be praying that you get some relief and get better soon!

{{Big hugs}}

These are wonderful, Lisa! The bunny is precious - and that egg is amazing! What a lovely, lovely card too!
I'm so sorry to read about your arm. Are you able to go for physiotherapy? I had a similar injury about two years ago and I cannot stress what a difference the physio and home exercises made (and no surgery!!) I do hope you heal quickly!
Thanks so much for playing along with us at My Craft Spot and at Fantabulous Cricut!

Unknown said...

Hey thank you sweetheart for all the information you gave me. I do shop online a lot! We have Michael's. JoAnns and Hobby Lobby here too. The problem I find myself in, is getting there. My husband will take me when I ask him but I hate to ask him. He does so much already to take care of me. But I am going to start paying better attention to JoAnns. Thank you Honey for helping me. All that typing was probably hard for you to do too.

Hugs, big ones, Pam

Debbie said...

Sorry to hear of your shoulder injury!! Praying all goes well for you!
I love this card especially!!!

Chriss America Real said...


What a fun way to ...get hurt? Ok, I am not a doctor...but my advice is to alternate hot & cold 15 minutes of heat and then 15 minutes of ice and then go to just continuous ice and see if that helps.

Your project is just amazing! Do you know that I have Flower Shoppe and I haven't even tried it yet?
