You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch..............


This week's OCC Challenge was to create a card using your favorite holiday movie as an inspiration. I love the Grinch - my favorite version is the original narrated by Boris Karloff - a true classic! I stamped empty ornament hangers from Tree Trimmings on Merry Moments designer paper and also used an ornament from Delightful Decorations. A little free hand drawing - very primitive to say the least - and the scene was set. Some days I just entertain myself with this stuff...................
........Last he went up the chimney himself the old liar,
Leaving nothing behind but hooks and some wire........

Wow! This is so sweet! Like you, my favorite of the Grinch movies is the original. You just can't beat Boris Karloff's narration or Thurl R.'s rendition of "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch!" Your free-hand arm is perfect.
