Default A few of my latest

These were done in the past 30 days or so. The Chargers portrait was a request from my mom as a Christmas present for her boss. Since my whole family are Charger fans I stack cut 4 of these to share with my Mom, Uncle, and one for myself. The people who have seen it say I should make more and sell them. As tempting as that is right now, I know I shouldn't do that. I may try and contact the Chargers and the NFL about the photo I used and see if they would give me permission to do that. What's the worse they can say?? "No!"

The 'Live, Laugh, Love' is from Sue and Toni and was available in the Ultimate Scrolling Patterns Collection, and on their website. It is cut in cherry and finished with BLO. Right now it is sitting on my wife's desk. I may have to make a base for it if that's where it will be staying.

The 'Bratz' portrait was made for a friend of my wife. She requested it for her daughter who just loves the show. The face has a pink felt background, and the name is purple felt with glitter.

I'm really enjoying this pattern making stuff. My problem lately is I like doing things that I can't really share so it usually ends up being a one time thing. Hopefully in the very near future that will change.

Any feedback is welcome. Thanks for looking.

G'day Jim,
The only feed back required on those is "Well Done"
The look great. Putting different coloured felt behind the cutting give a whole new dimension to it.

As was said, excellent cutting all of them.
The colored felt sure does enhance the look
of the Bratz plaque. Is the back ground on
the Chargers plaque the same method?
