New York Yankees Sign

Hey guys!

I haven't posted since June 28th?  Really???  Wow!  I really suck don't I???? 

Any-hoo...I want to share with you guys a sign that I did for my bff's Dad recently.  When my friend, Shawn asked me to do a baseball diamond sign for her Dad, I knew that I was up for the challenge! 

Shawn's Dad is a baseball memorabilia dealer and a HUGE NY Yankee fan!

Here's what I came up with...

I started with a 10"x10" piece of pine.  I sanded is nice and smooth and gave it a few coats of Rustoleum 2x spray paint in Navy blue.  I really like to use this spray paint in a satin finish.  For some reason, the HD only had it in a Gloss finish.  Oh well...adapt and overcome right???

I searched net for a NY symbol like the one used for the Yankees.  I had to import it, re-size it, and cut it using my old Craft Robo software, because for some reason I can't cut some things using my Silhouette software.  Wierd right?  Anyone know what's up with that???

I asked (ok begged) Price Charming to help me with this next step...hee hee!  I needed to cut straight lines and cut the bases out of my white vinyl.  I just don't have the patience for straight lines...I don't know what that's all about!

Here's my cutie patootie hard at work...

Gotta love that man!

Lastly, I took some silver vinyl and cut out "New York Yankees" using a script font that looked like the one they use in the real logo.

So what do you think?
