You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch!

It would not be the Christmas season without this holiday classic! Have you watched "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" yet this year?

I just had to make a Grinch card for my dear friend and co-teacher Traci! Not only has she worn her Grinch pin every day this month, but she "starred" in our class's reader's theater rendition of the Grinch. The kids LOVED it! LOL

To create this card, I first found a Grinch image online. The one I liked was already in color, so I printed it out on glossy photo paper. Doesn't it match the Jingle paper perfectly?!? That was total luck. I perused my Originals and Wishes card how-to books and settled on the perfect pattern: "Roundabout" from Wishes.

Since I don't have the Close To My Heart stamp set that actually includes the Grinch's famous message (Peace on Earth stamp set), I "made do" with the Card Chatter- Christmas stamp set. (You do know what famous message I'm talking about, don't you? The one about Christmas not coming from a store?

Finally, I embellished the card with some Tulip Twinkle brads and a Juniper photo anchor. (Remember, you can find all these products and tons more at my CTMH website!)

We had such a lovely dinner last night with our friends, the Maggios. They made scrumptious homemade crab ravioli. Oh my heavens! We all had so much fun!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
