My sister's clock

My sister had asked me, oh, probably a year back, if I could cut some large numbers for a clock, from vinyl...I said yes, and then life got in the way and we didn't get back to it.

Until a few weeks ago!  The first picture is just to give you an idea of how large the numbers are!
Yep, my big foot in there!  I wear a size 11 shoe!

 The second is of the finished product.

The finished size is over 36" in diameter, and the bottom sits about 5 1/2 feet from the landing.

I cut this from Oracal vinyl, and the font is Wedding Bliss ES.

I have to give credit where credit is due: my sis picked out the font and design of the hash marks ~ I just did the cutting.  Well, and helped put it up, but that's another story (I accidentally almost pulled the ladder out from under her, and I fell off the bottom 3 steps of the ladder because I thought I was at the bottom step...LOL).

Isn't it gorgeous? AND one of a kind!

Oh, I have to share this photo...We put the vinyl up before her clock mechanism arrived....she suggested we put up vinyl "hands."  So we did.  LOL  I asked her what her favorite time of day was, so that's what we went with!  LOL (It's supposed to be PM, after all the kids are in bed! LOL)  This cracked us up for days, the fake hands...

Ok yes, we're dorks.  At least I am.

Thanks for visiting just jayma.
