Default Another challenge taken on....

Had a young lady who picked up my card at the last Polish Festival come over to see if I had any deer, country, or hunting scenes for her parents new "up north" cabin. She like the scene in one and the frame of another. So I figured I'd be a smart**s and make her one. Then I could even personalize it too. This is Monday, when do you you need it by? "This Saturday is the party. It would be nice to have it then, for their anniversary, and cabin warming present. But I understand if you can't have it done, even though it would be nice." Bat the eyelashes and shed a tear or two just to help the cause. Geeze, what's an old codger supposed to do?

Let me see what I can come up with. Just have to take the scene from one piece and put it in a drawn out log frame of another. Oh, and add a surface for text. I glued up a couple pieces of 5/4 x 8 x 26 New Zealand pine, spent more time on the computer than I wanted to and crossed my fingers.

She liked the pics. Fingers are crossed she likes the finished piece.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I agree with Rick, that frame a picture are great together. John, you are doing fabulous on your signs.

I don't think you have to worry about her liking it.

I think she will like it John. I like the clean look from gluing up the blank for this one.

Well I can't speak for her but if she shows any sign of dislike it's time for you to shed a tear....but how could she not love it and in plenty of time for her to surprise them with at the house warming. From what I'm seeing, if there is a competition, you're the one to better. You got this down to an art. How long ahve you been making signs? Excellent work John!

Looks great, John. I don't think you need to worry about her not liking it.
