COL and more cards

At the Dutch Freestyle group we have COL almost every other week. Every crop there is at least one inspirational layout, that you can lift of give it your own twist! This was the one I chose.

I have absolutely no idea who made this one, but I love it!

A detailed photo, love that little Autumn Leaves birdie!


And this is what I made of it, didn't have the Note Worthy anymore, so I made my own out of Basic Grey Periphery. The stamps (Laugh out Loud, flower and Smile) are by Kelly Panacci and I absolutely love these! Prima flowers, buttons, ric-rac and lace and my Gelly pen are used too.
The cute little boy is my nephew, photo is taken on my moms birthday in 2005 and I've never used it for myself, but only in scrapbooks for my SIL and my mom..... too bad cause I think it's a great photo!
I still receive "get well soon" cards from people I don't even know, and I realized that some of them had not been shown here yet!

Thanks to each and everyone of you for all your beautiful cards! I really enjoy opening the mail these days! How am I doing..... well, could be better, at least in my opinion, but I think I want it to heal faster than is possible. If only sitting was more comfortable... my "behind" still hurts a lot, never knew there were so many muscles and tissue there:-)

June 9th I have to see the doctor again and probably need another X-ray and hopefully she can tell me that it's healed by then. The bad news is that the pain can hold on for about half a year and I really do not look forward to that!I'll keep you updated as soon as there is an update!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Yep, love that little birdie too! Great LO! I hope you feel good again at least before you fly over here! :)

Fabulous lift. I love the papers you selected.
Im finding myself more drawn to scrapping right now as most of the card & altered art challenges I have been doing are all repeating the themes & even lots of last years themes & they are way too worn out.

Je lootje is weer helemaal gaaf zeg! Ik vond het jammer dat ik er deze keer niet bij kon zijn, het was een mooie inspiratie. En wat lief zeg, dat je nog steeds zoveel kaartjes krijgt, dat doet een mens goed!
