Wonder & Amazement

Ingredients:  Stamps:  PaperTrey Ink Beyond Background Basics and Just Rite Sentiment Stamps; Gems:  KaiserKrafts; Die: PTI Mat Stack Die and Fillable Frames; Inks:  Stampin' Up Old Olive and Real Red Ink/Cardstock

I was trying to think of a song about Tuesday as I was writing this, but candidately nothing comes to mind.  Nothing too exciting about Tuesdays?! 

My card today is for the Passion for PaperTrey Challenge to make something for the holidays!  This is really similar to so many of my cards.  I love this PTI set!  And the clean design simply makes me happy.

In news around the house this week:
  • In the informal voting in Ryan's English class, he was voted "best smile."  Somehow, I think the "informal voting" may have consisted of him and three of his friends.   Although, he does have a fabulous smile even if I am biased.
  • Jonathon loves being quizzed on triple digit multiplication.  A boy after my own heart with his love of math.
  • Collin loves the chocolate advent calendar my mum gave to each of the boys.  Most days he tries to eat two a day and then figure out which brother hasn't had their chocolate yet...makes for a nice, peaceful advent season! :)
  • Marcel is eating us out of house and home.  (Where did that phrase come from by the way?)  After he finishes a meal, he waits what seems like about five minutes before asking for the next snack or meal.  We then show him how many hours or minutes it is until the next meal on our fingers. 
Hope all is well around your house!

Gorgeous card - I love those frames you use - simple but effective.

Can't think of any Tuesday songs either - guess it's hard to rhyme. (Although it makes a cameo appearance in "Friday I'm in Love.

Haven't yet figured the origin of "eating us out of house and home" but Shakespeare used it in Henry IV, 2:1: "He hath eaten me out of house and home" so it's been floating around a while...

Have a great day!
