Fun Holiday Project!

I try and make little gifts for co-workers and friends each Christmas -- this year I came up with the idea to make inspiring sentiments using my Cricut ;o)

They really are easy to do - - pine boards cut down to size, sanded and painted and then sanded again to give the edges more of a 'rustic' look - I did use an electric sander to make the process faster ;o) I then ran a rag of stain across each one to fill in the sanded exposed wood areas. Next, I had fun using my Cricut machine, white vinyl and the Cuttin' Up and Mickey font cartriges to cut out my sentiments. Then it was just the fun of applying the vinyl to the sign fronts.

Now....comes the really fun part -- GIFTING them!!! ;o) I absolutely love love love everything about Christmas and I love to give presents but I would really honestly not prefer to receive any ~ there is really nothing I need ;o)
Sooo...if you would happen to be one of my friends or co-workers who have received one of these thanks soo much for your friendship ~ YOU are my gift ;o)

~TFL & Enjoy~
