Made for a Christmas present. I bought a cheap clock with a wide enough border and covered it in Archie characters. Re-reading the comics, I kept wondering why I liked these so much whereas now they drive me crazy. Poor Archie gets so embarrassed when Betty pays for their dates! Pfft.  Cheesy

  Well, my friend loves them, so I'm hoping she likes this.

And Betty, joyfully skipping around on the second hand (she was always my favorite):



Advice: Make sure the clock works before you buy it. Otherwise you will be horribly angry and have to buy a clock mechanism from Michael's. Raarg.  Angry

Wow!  I, too, love Archie comics.  I have some saved from when I was young.  In fact, I have the oldest comic book in the house, much to my husband's annoyance Grin

This looks so well done, you should be proud of yourself!  I want one!  I think I need to wist this Cheesy
