A "Grinchy" Christmas Card

There are so many Christmas movies that I love to watch year after year but I think there is only one that brings back Christmas memories each time.    Would you believe that would be the Grinch Who Stole Christmas?!     You must wonder why THAT movie?  Well, when my husband and I were getting ready for our first Christmas together (over 25 years ago) we got our very first tree.   I remember making felt ornaments (stitched them together by hand!) because we didn't have ornaments for our tree - we actually didn't have ANY decorations.  The night we were ready to set up the tree and decorate, we turned the TV on and the old animated version of The Grinch came on.  Every year after that, when we set up our tree and began to decorate, like clockwork - The Grinch was on TV!  So - it is tradition.  Now we watch the movie - The Grinch.  It has become an all time favorite in our house! So if it's not running on TV when we decorate - we'll pop in the movie!

Today when I see bright greens, pinks and blues at Christmas time, I always think of the Grinch.  That is why I created this card in those colors.   The tree on the stamp I used even looks 'Grinchy'.  (if that's even a word!).

The stamp set is Tannenbaum (B1361).  I used Silver embossing for the detail, the present, and the sentiment.   Although the Twinkle Brads Jolly Assortment (Z1220) are retired you can still purchase them from the While Supplies Last section of my website for only $1!  The polka dot paper is from the Believe Paper Level 2 (X7145B) paper pack.  The square was cut using my Art Philosophy cricut Cartridge <square 2> at 3".

I used the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping for this card and I'm also entering this card into the Crazy 4 Challenges - "Favorite Movie challenge CAC116"

I'm also linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World.   It goes perfectly with this week's inspiration picture - Deck the Halls!

Do you have a Christmas movie that brings back a fun memory?  I'd love to hear about it!
