Here's what I created, to share with you!



This is my story -- 

I made this for my sister - She HATES Christmas
because she worked in Retail for over 20 yrs.
and saw how customers acted during the holidays-
which turns her stomach -- It's suppose to be
a year of giving, kindness, compassion....
But during the holidays a lot of people seem
to loose that -- So, every year I make her a Grinch
Card or wood piece or whatever.... She loves it!


Here's the Recipe for this Project -

Digital Designer Paper - PPBN
Grinch - SVG Cutting Files

My dear friend, this is spectacular! The Grinch looks so real and I adore your papers! The sentiment tucked beneath the snowflake is lovely, as are all of your stitched elements. Amazing creation and so perfectly tailored to her... although I hope and pray the true beauty of Christmas reawakens within her and she can once again celebrate the greatest gift of all. Thinking of you and wishing you a happy and healthy weekend, Theresa! :o)

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
