JustRite and Inchie Arts!

Good morning to you all! I am glad today is Friday! I get to dress up like Simon today from Alvin and the Chipmunks. The students absolutely love when the teachers dress up! OF course let me tell you.....it is hard to have much authority when one is dressed as a chipmunk! LOL!

Every Friday JustRite has a challenge and this week the challenge is two fold. We were to use this sketch AND use an Inchie square. These squares are wonderful at giving dimension to a card! Scroll down for more info about Inchie Squares. : )
Here is my take on the sketch. Apparently, I have a "thing" for mittens these days! I seem to gravitate to them! I added faux stitching to my Inchie Square to help "ground" my mittens. The mittens are from the new CLING set called Sparky and Friends!

Here is some info about Inchie Squares!

Inchie Arts offers three different sizes of the highest quality artist grade matteboard squares: 1” (Inchie), 1-1/2” (Inchie +) and 2” (Twinchie). All of their products are fade resistant, acid free, lignin free and solid core color through and through. The material is designed to receive whatever art medium (wet or dry) you use in your coloring and embellishments - from stamping to watercolors, chalks, inks, pens, markers, stains and more. They are available in black, dark gray, light gray, wheat, dark cream, ivory and white; as individual packages or assortment packs
Be sure to visit the JustRite blog for the other DT gals' projects! They are all fabulous!
Have a great weekend and a fabulous Halloween!

Super cute, Michele! I love that little curlicue twine on the mittens. It was dress up day where I work, too. The patients love it, but I'll admit it turns into sort of a play day and not much work gets done. We deserve it, though!
