~Special Mom~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. Can you believe it's the last day of April? Where has this month gone?
I am almost finished with my school year as well. We have 6 classes left in preschool. I will definitely miss this class. Some of the students just hold a special place in my heart. their parents even tell me how much their kids love me. It makes me feel special.
Right before our graduation ceremony I will make a short trip to San Francisco to take care of my precious little granddaughter Phoenix Daisy. I can't wait to hug and kiss her. We do a video chat all the time on our IPads but seeing her in person will be wonderful. She already has plans made for us playing with her baby dolls. And lots of other ideas I am sure (lol).
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #580 on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki was our hostess and she chose daffodil delight, island indigo and garden green for her color palette.
daffodil delight island indigo garden green
I have been wanting to try the pleated skirt fold after I saw this great tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. For my fold I used island indigo designer paper from the Stampin'-Up "gingham garden" collection.
The teapot is cut with more Stampin'-Up designer paper. This one is from the "greenhouse gala" collection. The teapot lid and scallop decoration are cut in garden green.

Completed my card with my sentiment from a set by ODBD. The hearts are part of the Stampin'-Up "cups and framelits dies", The island indigo ribbon and bow are also Stampin'-Up.
Well that's it for me for today my friends! Off to watch my grandson play baseball. He is over this side of town today so I don't have to travel an hour to watch him play. So until next time........God bless.
