Here is the order of the hop.....
Natalie Graham **** you are here****
I love signs, LOVE them, love to make them, love them for every holiday.... just ask any of my neighbors, who has to see them on my front porch.... or my husband, who is always willing to make them for me... this one is not an exception. This one however was made from scraps, so its a cute little one.... My husband was making me a giant flag for the summer, and I sat and watched as he was gathering up the scraps to throw away, and I couldn't bear it.... wait, lets make a little one... For what he said? I don't know, but I will know when it when I see it. So when I saw these quotes in Lori's shop, I knew that this little pallet sign was destined to be a Valentine sign.... so this is what I came up with.
And so you can see what size and where it's new home is.... here it is in my living room sitting by my mantel by the giant chalkboard sign I made last year.... I told you I liked signs....
I painted this ombre style, started at the bottom with full strength pink, then added more white each plank going up til I got to the top, which was mostly white. I then cut the saying from vinyl, and using the negative space for stencil, painted it gold. (the gold was a fun choice, however it is a little harder to read... i still like it, though) After it dried, I lightly sanded it and then sprayed it with a coat of glitter blast, because everything at Valentines should be a little sparkly?
I got the quote from this set here, found in Lori's shop. She has some super cute things right now, just in time for Valentines. And of course because of the blog hop, they are on sale! So make sure to stop by and grab some...
She also has a give away! So grab that as well.....
And for one of my lucky readers, I will give you a $10 gift certificate to her shop!! Whaaooo!!! Leave a comment, and tell me what your favorite Valentine treat is, and if we share the same you win! Unless there is a whole slew of you that share the same treat as me, and in that case, I'll pick a random winner!!! Contest ends at midnight... Make sure to leave your contact info!
Thanks for stopping by.... next stop.... Traci Penrod
