A Grandfather Clock for a grandfather

I am super excited to bring you this creation because I think from all my creations I’m the most proud of this one! Tho I always say this for the craft I’m currently doing! ¬†ūüėČ ¬†But I’m most proud of this one cos it’s the first I posted on SVGCut’s fb page and there were likes and comments!!! ¬†I mean I was just hoping that the creator of the clock, Thienly Nazim wouldn’t hate it but even Leo (or Mary) responded!

Mary and Leo are the minds and hands behind those brilliant cutting files that we can work with and amaze our friends (and sometimes ourselves too)! Then inspiration strikes and the DT members come up with combinations of files and the result is …beyond words.

One of the authors on my Top10 favorite list is Tina (writes under the penname: JP Summers). She mentioned that she was in the process of ¬†repainting/decorating her home-office so I “seized” the opportunity and interrogated her about the colors she likes and I got to work.

My first idea was to spell her name in big 3D letters for her to put on a shelf.
