Birthday Card and Sign

Over the weekend we celebrated my Grandfather in-laws birthday. I had no clue what to get him. So I set out to make him a special card. I had pinned a card on Pinterest a while back that I thought would work out great. This is the card. I traced the kids hands. Maddy's being the front hand and Peyton's the back.
I cut two hands from each and glued them together to make the card thicker and less flimsy.

Isn't Pinterest addicting? I could spent HOURS and HOURS browsing that site! A while back I came across a sign and fell in love with it. Fast forward a few weeks. I hosted a couponing class at my house recently. The teacher, Dana, has MANY talents. One of them is painting. Check out this sign she made for me...
Yep! It happens to be dang close to the sign I had pinned but 10 times cuter! The sign reads: In this home we are real, we do 2nd chances, we show grace, we say sorry, we give hugs, we do family, we do love...the family of dupont.

Another idea I have seen on Pinterest was the drawer knob that it is hanging by. I took an old wood knob I picked up at a thrift store and painted it black. I then used it as the hanger!

Isn't that cool? I just LOVE it! Dana has an Etsy shop. You can find it here, Selah Signs. Check it out !

Where did I hang the sign? Well, somewhere I would see it often. This is the little wall that I pass by more times than I can count every day. It is in the dining area of the house. I see it when I walk in the house, I see it when I am doing laundry and when I'm cooking and countless other times throughout the day.

I have a layout to share soon! You still there or did that knock you over in surprise? Haha! Yep, I actually scrapped a layout Friday! :-) Birds of a Feather is having a crop this weekend and I sure hope to be able to get some scrappy time in this weekend too! I'd love it if you came and joined us!
