Baking with Grandma

Morning peeps.  Hope you are all well.  My card today is just because I want to, but it was a Christmas card request from one of the ladies in my apartment block to send to another lady also living in the block.  The lady is always cooking pies and cakes every day for a function that her daughter/granddaughter or their friends are having.  So this image I thought appropriate as she looks after her granddaughter before school and after school and in the holidays.
