The Zoo

I feel that my life is like many of the animals that live at the zoo, so it is no surprise that I find comfort in visiting the local zoo.  We are fortunate to have one near by and it cost $4 to rent a wheelchair so I can push my husband around.  Since I am pushing him, he is able to get many more photographs; however, I just find it relaxing to be outside enjoying the day.

For my cards I made one for my Aunt and Uncle who recently just lost their dog.  Paulette has a special sentiment which can be found at TLC, Create that I think is just perfect for putting into words losing a special family member.  Then I made I card for a co-worker using this week's Mojo sketch and another TLC, Create sentiment of Congratulations.  My last card is a card using an image from A Day for Daisies and the sentiment is from a great set from TLC, Create.

Beautiful cards, Lisa Lynn! Wonderful photos from the zoo, too! I used to go to the Zoo and Wild Animal Park a lot when I lived in San Diego. I haven't visited the Birmingham Zoo yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

It looks like you had a fabulous day at the zoo.

I love your cards, especially your pet sympathy card. The sentiment brought a tear to my eye. (We just had the conversation with the vet last night that we are going to have to put down one of our dogs very soon.)
