Happy Mother's Day and more.....

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It is Mothers Day in the US so I am also sending Mother's Day greetings to my US readers. I am spending Mothers Day away from Pittsburgh-a first for me. But, I am celebrating with my youngest son-daughter-in-law and my sweet Phoenix Daisy.

On Friday we went to the zoo together. She loves giraffes and when she saw them her little feet were dancing up and down in her stroller. It was such a wonderful day with her. We spent 3 hrs there before she fell asleep in her stroller and then our trek back home began. My son lives within walking distance to the zoo, but the walk back home seemed to take forever. I was totally exhausted by the time her Mommy came home.

I have three (3) awards to post today. My first one was given by Splitcoaststampers for this card and this card.

They were both picked on different weeks as one of the weekly favorites. I really liked how the cards turned out using the train from the Marks Finest Papers "train talk".

This card won 3 awards (whoo-hoo), It was named as a weekly favorite on Splitcoaststampers.

On the Great Impressions blog it won the top award. I received a $20 gift certificate to spend in the store. Then it was also chosen as one of the top 3 on the SJ Crafts blog.

Well that's it for me for today. I close this post with a picture of my sweet Phoenix Daisy and myself at the zoo.
This peacock was walking around so we were able to get a picture fairly close to the bird. Someone graciously took the photo.

So until next time........God bless.
