Grinch-y Alpha

The original request for this alpha was
I would like to see a doodled alpha. I really want one that is a double one - that is two layers so I could possibly add a paper of my choice to one of them. I have seen a couple of them around, when they are finished with a paper they kind of look like a ransom note.

By double one I mean one letter a and then another one drawn offset on another layer.

And it was really difficult for me to figure out what the request meant because when I think of adding a paper, I think template, not a finished alpha.  I also wasn't quite sure about the ransom note statement.  After thinking for a long time, I came up with this alpha, Grinch-y, based on Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  This story is also special for my family because Max, the dog from the story, is the lovey for my youngest.  He is very abused now.

This alpha comes with letters and numbers in both cutout and regular format.  If people like this alpha, I can also release the template that I made for it.  Please leave a comment if you want the template.

  5. Hi - Thanks! It's really cute!

    Yes, I would like to see a template, too, please. No matter what colors I have, I always seem to need to change them to match the LO. :(

  6. I'd really love to have the template. How The Grinch Stole Christmas is my favorite Christmas show and has been since I was a kid.

  7. I LOVE the alpha... and I am not a big alpha fan.

  8. Now this is an ALPHA...way to go! Just love the look and the color is pretty great too. You never cease to amaze, the talent!
    Would the template enable us to change color? Whay else would we need it? I would love to try and work with the template if you release it. I'll keep checking...for sure.(and snagging as well)
    Hugs and big thanks....
