 :congrats:  Jennylynn, I love the bright, crisp colour you used for the leafy branches. A very lovely version of this picture. Well done.  :clap: :clap:
I agree, it's going to be so difficult to choose.  :sweat:

Patricia,  I did a little research on the mat cutters before I bought mine.  There are, of course, many more expensive and much better than mine.  I did not want to invest a small fortune, but wanted something that is at  least appropriate for the job.  As a result, I chose the Logan 450  Elite.. I think??  I am not at home now and I can't remember the number exactly.  It does the job for me.  I have not used another one, so I can't compare it to any other model... I know the price varies depending on sales and from vendor to vendor.  I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby with a coupon which, if I remember correctly made it equal to or better than any other price that I compared from the art suppliers, etc.  There are many Logan models to choose from.  I think the price I paid was between $125.00  and $160  with the coupon... I know that's a broad range, but it was a year or so ago and I cannot remember..(senior moments,  :P )  I think you should consider your price limit and choose what you feel is the best in your range.  Hope this helps a little.

 :thankyou:  Thank you so much Dianne for your information on the Logan Cutter.  I will also be getting mine from Hobby Lobby with a coupon.  I really appreciate your advice for I would hate to spend the money and then find it is no good.  Thanks a ton.  Patricia
