Nuts about you!

Sunday morning-

I awoke to find myself all alone. Instead of climbing onto my bed to snuggle like they usually do, it seems that the girls have gone to hang out with Daddy. I staggered into the family room to find the kids huddled around the t.v., watching the Grand Prix.

No one had moved from their position when I checked on them again after I had cleaned up and changed. I try not to play with paper during the weekends but I have no interest in watching the race.

"Jinnnnnn....I'm here.....come and turn me on....."

I could hear my Cameo calling.

The family was enjoying their race, I suppose it wouldn't hurt for me to play for a bit. I walked into the craft room and reached out for the On button.

"Peeeeeep..!", the Silhouette came alive and the carriage moved as if to wave a happy Hello!

From the room I could hear the commentators talking excitedly- Mark Webber had quit the race! There are 20 more laps to go before the race is over and that means I only have about half an hour left to play. Hastily I flipped open my laptop, started Silhouette Studio (DE), and got onto the Lettering Delights website. I spied a recently released set and downloaded the file.

I came up with this:

I printed, and cut, and glued, and then I heard it.


Sebastian Vettel had won the race and the show was done. I exhaled, and held up my card. I smiled.

I too, had won my race.
