Hello everyone .Hope that you and yours are well and happy . Welcome to my room , where I share just a few of the cards I make . My style is CAS  , and I rarely venture too far from my comfort zone . Having said that I hope that you enjoy your visit here .
Twelve months ago Doug suffered a major stroke . Many of my followers will remember .
I will dedicate this post to my Husband, Doug,  as we celebrate his continuing recovery  and him being a stroke survivor . Each day is a" special day "to us both and we choose to celebrate every day !

The card I have today says it all .When Michelle , our Daughter was here, just recently with her family ,we all went to the Zoo . That was  a major outing with family for Doug , hence the animals ..
Card base is SU Pacific Point
The sentiment is from a set from Just by Jesta.
The animals from SU set  Zoo Review.
Markers were used to colour
