Inchies and Opposite Challenge

I am fascinated by inchies. I thought they were cool since the first time I saw them but never tried to make any. Well I had some scraps left over from the ornaments I made for the 2007 Christmas Ornament Exchange on and I needed some quick small gifts for my coworkers. I dicided to use the scraps and see what I could do. I started out with larger pieces but used those up quickly and eventually ended up with 1" squares that I stuck a hotfix rhinestud on and satin stitched the edges and added a hanging loop. The ones I handed out at work were red. The second picture is of pretty close examples, only a little bit larger and rectangular.

I also needed something to do for Opposites on the Chooseday Challenge. I was thinking of youth vs. old age. After playing with the inchie ornaments I really wanted to do something with inchies. So I did opposites in seasons. Spring vs. Fall and Summer vs. Winter. I just call it Seasons. You can't really see it very well in the photo but it's the best I could do. On the winter scene that little blob is a tree.
So what do you think?
