Jesus and the Grinch

This week's ODBD challenge involved making a card with white or cream, silver or gold, plus a color or two.

I had been thinking about doing a white wreath for some time so it seemed like the perfect opportunity especially after the SplitCoast Stampers' WT348 challenge was to use space wisely by doing a 3-D portion on your card.

The Splitcoast Stampers' F4A90 challenge was to use your favorite embellishment - the one you are the most thankful for so this fits in that challenge as well. I am thankful for Stickles, bling, and punches (a tool really - but it produces embellishments). Embelishments made from punches are my favorite thing, but they wouldn't be the same without bling!

I love how this card came out.  The scripture is one that we can all count on at Christmas and any other time of the year.  The wreath reminds me of some wreaths my daughters and I made this year.  A memory I will not forget (I hope they won't either). 

I saw a round cake someone had decorated on Pinterest to look like the Grinch. I thought it would translate well into a punched Grinch. Here is the cake:


This was so fun, I think I will make some more.  The Grinch story is one of my favorite Christmas stories.  I wonder what we would all do if someone stold every little thing from our houses at Christmas.  Would any of gather at the town square and sing joyfully because we know Christmas is all in our hearts? 


  1. Nancy, your wreath card is just so pretty. And, you can be sure I wouldn't be singing on the town square if someone stole all my things at Christmas. How wonderful, though, if anyone could do that.

  2. Looooove that wreath card!! Such a great use of that MS punch (bonus punch points for you!). The Grinch card just makes me smile :) Love watching that show.

  3. The white wreath is so beautiful and that Grinch is as cute as can be.

  4. That wreath is outstanding, Nancy! I think it is ultra gorgeous. And the Grinchy card - so cute!
