  24. Lovely snippet card, Sandra. I do like your colouring of the image. Sadly, my grandchildren now consider themselves too old, or is it too busy with their chums, to spend weekends with us but I do remember what a pleasure it was when they were little - and how tiring it was too :) Elizabeth xx
