A card and a little Josh Rouse song.

Today was a cold and quiet day. I didn't do very much today. Finished a card, bought some birthdaypresents and drunk a cup of tea with my girlfriend in a nice, but unfortunately not so warm, café.

A little Dutch poem.

wat is vriendschap
wat is liefde
anders dan
het weten
en ervaren
Ik kom thuis
bij jou
Jij komt thuis
bij mij
Gisteren en morgen
veilig geborgen
in het nu
bij jou
bij mij

I want to introduce you to Josh Rouse (1972). He's an American singer-songwriter and I love his music. He's not very known in The Netherlands but deserves to get a little attention.

Listen to his song "Quiet Town".

Yes, I'm still alive!

I know it's been a long, long time ago since my last post.
A lot is going on right now and I'm not in a scrapping mood.
But today is my fathers birtday and I had to make a birthdaycard for him.
Of course I used a sketch from my favorite card sketch blog 2sketches4you and here's my card. I used some October Afternoon papers which I bought some time ago but didn't use until now.
Do you see the first snow of the season on the roof of my car? It's not much, but I think there's more to come.

And there was a big and happy surprise for me by mail. A lot of ladies from the Dolls & Decoration forum send me cards because they miss me at the forum and wanted to say "Hi" to me. I feel so very happy about that and you all deserve a big hug from me. Thank you so much.

Yesterday I went out for dinner in a lovely restaurant in Zutphen, called Barrio Cubana, and the food was really nice. I think you should give it a try when you are in the neighbourhood.
