Home decor Family sign

Our 13th wedding anniversary is coming up the end of this month. It is so cold here (-45* on Sunday) and the kids are back in school, so to pass a little time I made myself an anniversary gift. I had seen an image online of birds on a branch, I immediately fell in love. It reminds me of hubby and myself with our 2 little birds.

I traced and cut the image with my Cameo, but not before I added weeding lines. Oh my, adding the weeding lines made weeding that font a breeze!! Thank you Youtube!!
 I painted my 1x10x24 with some brown acrylic paint before applying my vinyl. The hardest and most time consuming part of the whole project was deciding on the font I wanted to use. (By the way, it is from a free font site and it is called Precious)
Right now my sign is sitting on my mantle, I still need to decide where I am going to display it.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~
