I made this card for my sisters. When I saw the tiny Lil’ Grumpies on my newest Smeared Ink set, I knew I had to make them a card featuring these crazy little creatures.


Growing up, we 3 each had our “own” color. I was blue, Pam was green, and Monica was pink. Our rooms were in our color, if our mom bought us 3 of something, it was in our color, etc. So, of course I had to color in the Grumpies in “our” color as well!


I also tried to pick the Grumpies that I thought was most like each of us! And my sisters definitely thought that I picked the right ones!


They are colored in with colored pencils. And the “Sisters” is from an Alphabet set by Time Flies.


I added this to the inside. This sentiment is from the Lil’ Grumpies set. I love the sentiments that it comes with!

My family thought the card was great. Which of course makes me very happy! But, I may have to make one more of these so they don’t fight over the single card! Have an inspiring day!!!


How cute!! Love the story about the colors.
