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.

Hi Joke! Thanks for you kind comments on my blog. Your card is great and glad to see your back too. We all can get in slump sometimes and that's is okay. I was reading your blogger profile and saw you loved the book Bridges of Madison County. I grew up near there. Every year we went to the covered bridge festival. So I loved the book too. They filmed the movie there too.
