Oh, Alice! Chapter 26: Sizin' up a Sketch...

"The Caterpillar was the first to speak. `What size do you want to be?' it asked.
`Oh, I'm not particular as to size,' Alice hastily replied; `only one doesn't like changing so often, you know.'  `I DON'T know,' said the Caterpillar.
Alice said nothing: she had never been so much contradicted in her life before, and she felt that she was losing her temper.
`Are you content now?' said the Caterpillar.
`Well, I should like to be a LITTLE larger, sir, if you wouldn't mind,' said Alice: `three inches is such a wretched height to be.'
`It is a very good height indeed!' said the Caterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as it spoke (it was exactly three inches high).
`But I'm not used to it!' pleaded poor Alice in a piteous tone. And she thought of herself, `I wish the creatures wouldn't be so easily offended!'
`You'll get used to it in time,' said the Caterpillar; and it put the hookah into its mouth and began smoking again..."

Hello! How is everyone here in Wonderland today?

We are sizing up a GREAT sketch by Jen Shultz and the main panel just HAPPENS to be... THREE. INCHES. TALL.
Now, of course you don't have to stick to this if your image won't fit, but we didn't want to anger Mr. Caterpillar by saying that Three inches wasn't a respectable height, so here's the sketch:

I had to strech it a bit ;) Here's my 3 1/2 inch tall card!

I'm sorry, but I did steer away from the sketch a bit - I really wanted to use this paper from October Afternoon and didn't have the heart to cut it up even more :) I used my "Down the Rabbit Hole" TJ Design Rubber Stamp Set; and I'm still not too sure about the flower and pearls I chose, but all together I like how it turned out ;)

Now it's time to go check out the rest of the Tea Party's inspiring creations :)
