Moments In Time Howzat and a Grand Visitor

We had a visitor yesterday "Grandma", well she is my husband Grandma,and a very special lady at the grand old age of 98. Her memory is very short term but her health is ok,she can walk with a stick,even got up our stairs for the loo ,looked around the house and gazed at the garden through the french doors. She loved my dolls house and all the furniture and dolls within. My naughty white poodle jumped on her knee ,even though we had put cushions over her legs . She left with a kiss,a smile and 2 of my freshly baked chocolate chip and cherry muffins.Not bad for someone who is Mother to 3,Grandmother to 9, Great Grandmother to 16, and Great great Grandmother to 3.

Oh another wet and cold day,I'm sick of this now,can't even cut the grass ,oh well least there's crafting.
This stamp "Howzat" by flower soft,was one of 2 I bought half price in Llangollan,the other is the football one,man of the match.I've kept this card simple ,is this becoming a habit, probably not,just stamps and colouring and a stop of doodling.
By the way ,if your interested Howzat is a cricket term , put simply it means how's that as said to the umpire.
