  • Irish Valentines card

    I have been asked to create a wooden valentines card. I had made one for Jaun last year and decided I would try and advertise to make them. I had a woman on FB ask me to create what I would call a valentines card Irish style. Let me know what ya's think. This is what it would look like on wood including the colors behind the wood. The little Irish phrase on the bottom right corner will be wood burned with golden flecks added. The dimensions are 8 1/2 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches wide.

      Hi Cherie - Nice! I like the idea of a wooden card

      Ref the second design. I see you have superimposed the design on a piece of pine board. Whilst I have no experience cutting this type of fretwork on pine I wonder if is too delicate a pattern for pine and if you might run a big risk of pieces dropping out as you are cutting.

      Also nit picking on the wording - I had to read the phrase three times to understand the last line because it seemed you could interpret it two ways. I'd change the line to say 'and less than tomorrow'.

      Please post in the Fretwork section whatever you decide to go with. I think its a very good idea which other members may wish to follow.

        LOL Jim. This is what the customer ordered. Believe me I do not understand the last line either.

          LOL Cherie - glad it wasn't just me who read it wrong. Still, if the customer doesn't see a problem then there's no problem and after all, they do say that true love is blind !

                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
